THE KEY TO TRUSTING IN THE LORD

Have you ever heard someone say that they don’t believe in God because they cannot see Him? Some people may find it hard to trust in a God that they cannot see, but others know that once you believe in God and let Him work through your life, you will see Him show up!

The key to trusting in God is to believe with faith that He is good and His way is best! It’s not just trusting in Him when things are good or with things that we see as a spiritual matter- but to trust in Him with All of our hearts and in All situations. God is working for our good and even when we don’t see what He is doing we can trust that He has everything figured out.

How to Trust God

Get to know God personally.

The Bible talks about how much God desires a close personal relationship with each of us. He’s not a distant God, trying to play hard to get in the clouds. He pursues us and loves us and wants to be known by us. God loves you and wants to spend time with you. The more time you spend with Him, the more you get to know Him. And the more you get to know Him, the easier it is to trust Him.

Cry out to God

Surrendering to God begins with our lips and our thoughts. We need more than a commitment to depend on Him; we need to cry out to Him to show that dependence.
When we pray, we admit that His ways are higher than ours. We show that we’re leaving our troubles and burdens and dreams in His capable hands. In fact, the Bible promises that when we reach out to Him in prayer, He hears us.

Read about how God feels about you

I remember walking to my car one day in college when I had just told a lie. I thought in my head, God, I don’t know why you put up with me. At that moment, I felt the gentlest whisper in my spirit say, I don’t “put up” with you. I adore you. Tears are welling up in my eyes even now as I remember that moment. God doesn’t put up with you either. He adores you. So often we project onto God how we feel about ourselves—full of disappointment, failure and doubt. Or we project from a place of woundedness from our past—how our dad talked to us when we were little, or how a hateful boyfriend treated us in middle school. We expect that God feels the same way about us. If you see God as a judgmental dictator in the clouds, waiting for you to mess up again, no wonder it’s hard to trust Him. That’s why you need to read (and reread and reread!) about how God actually feels about you.

Put God First in Your Life

It’s easiest to put ourselves first. When something good happens, we want to congratulate ourselves with a reward. When something bad happens, we want to console ourselves or find someone to blame. In other words, we often have a “me-centric” starting place.

And when it comes to money, the struggle is even harder. But Solomon, who had quite a bit of wealth himself, knew that his money didn’t belong to him.
If we can trust God with the first of our wealth, we’re truly showing how much we depend on Him. Handing over the first part of our paycheck takes a huge amount of faith, after all. But doing so means being God-centric.

Listen to the Holy Spirit

When Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit to the church, He told His disciples that this Counselor would be their spiritual compass or GPS:
As we go through our day, this same Holy Spirit guides us, too. That means we don’t have to go it alone or hope we’re getting it right. No, the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth and protects us.
After all, the gift of the Holy Spirit to us believers reminds us that we can truly…
