” I float through life like a leaf on a river, because I put my trust in God”
To every person God is different. For many people there is no God given that they don’t believe. However for believers there definitely is a God and that God has a different meaning to each and every individual. There are numerous religions out there nevertheless the one focal point of all these religions is God and even more importantly believing and trusting in God. To trust in God is a fulfilling thing for believers simply because they believe in God so they know their trust is well placed. You cannot trust in something you don’t believe in, so in order to trust you have to be in a position to believe first. Many people continue to be looking for God. Others consider themselves Christians nevertheless they aren’t fully convinced that God exists. Now one has to wonder what could very well come from putting your trust in something you may not firmly have faith in – nothing. (Hebrews 11:6 NIV) And without faith it is actually impossible to impress God, because anyone that concerns him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
It often happens that one comes to a point in their lives where one has experienced a lot of different things, good quality some bad, and thru this experience one involves actually know one’s self and understand that through knowing ones self one actually involves know God. For many this process doesn’t take as long, but I feel that God includes a purpose for some of us taking longer to find him than the others, almost like a mission that we must complete before our company is equipped enough to know God.
(John 15:5-6 NIV) “I am the vine; you are the branches. When a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; besides me you can do nothing. 6 If someone fails to remain in me, he or she is like a branch that is discarded and withers; such branches are found, thrown in to the fire and burned
After we make it to the point where we fully Relax God Is Working we can give over our full trust to him and possess faith in him to lead us through the path of our life, at the same time trusting that whatever happens does so to get a greater purpose than we understand since the reigns have been in Gods hands. Through giving our trust to God fully we can be at peace and make peace with many current and previous conflicts within our lives, because we now have that great trust in God we instantly become relieved of they constant burdens we felt all the time whenever we were attempting to handle and control everything ourselves. It is not possible for any individual to be in control over everything on a regular basis it is exactly what God can there be for to relieve our burdens when we would just reach know him and let him be there for us.
“Trust within the Lord, and do good; Dwell inside the land, and feast upon His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And Then He shall provide you with the desires of the heart. Commit your path towards the Lord, Trust also in Him, And Then He shall bring it to move. He shall bring forth your righteousness since the light, And your justice because the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Usually do not fret as a result of him who prospers in the way, As a result of man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Tend not to fret — it only causes harm” (Psalm 37:3-8).
Our company is so quick to evaluate other different religions to the own; instead this energy and time may be spent getting our own bond with God to grow. We quite often know almost no, to nothing about other religions yet we think that people can judge and quite often hate them. This may not be what god is all about, nevertheless every religion we criticize are in their way are worshipping God and putting their trust in God and letting him lighten their burden. We should too spend our time in this way rather than being judgmental of others which only serves to make our personal lives more petty and miserable. We need to instead take more time looking into ourselves and seeking to God believing in and trusting God to help carry our burdens and teaching us to love others as we love ourselves. We quite often don’t realize exactly how much easier and happier our lives could be whenever we would just trust in God.
We nowadays have come to rely on and trust in a lot of things, which we have now come to do without even thinking. We get inside our car and trust it to adopt us to where we want to go. We receive into elevators and trust that they may take us where we have to do without any problems, the same thing goes for airplanes, trains, boats, buses and so on…
Sometimes we need to undergo an operation, where we might die, yet we trust the doctor to use on us so we hope to find the best. Now since we can so easily put our trust in all these trivial everyday things, why do we have now this kind of hard time believing in God and giving him our trust? God is greater and much more powerful and all sorts of knowing than anything else we put our trust in. Just look around once you begin to possess doubts, whatever faith you happen to be, evidence of God is completely everywhere you gaze. It’s difficult to miss.
I believe there is nothing wiser than trusting in God, there are such benefits which become visible once you truly trust. There are numerous instances of people that have been through terrible things throughout their lives, absolutely horrendous experiences. They may have been travelling the wrong road at that time rather than been blameless but somehow they survived and that which was it in the end that helped those to survive everything, and turn their lives around and have faith in themselves again? It had been that through the storm when they almost didn’t allow it to be, they found a branch to hold onto which saved them, that branch was god who was there to trap them.
It is really an interesting proven fact that many Christians or believers were once criminals, rapists, murderers, thieves etc. Some criminals once mocked others to be weak for believing in something which failed to exist, since it could not really seen. Hardened criminals, who did exactly what is the opposite of goodness and love and God, eventually place their trust in God. That will surely make those skeptics out there wonder. Why would somebody that was once so cool, confident and fearful of nothing choose God? This I believe is simply because once they had accomplished their life mission and were nearing their particular end, God stuck out your branch and saved them from all the horrible things they had known, things which were causing their demise. These folks, the ones who had fallen on the wayside had first hand experience there definitely is really a God and this without him they would not have caused it to be. They became believers and place their total trust in God from then onwards, because they knew little else were as great or trustworthy. They had learned that little else was as fulfilling as knowing you needed someone searching for you personally all the time. Someone who you could trust totally and do not be let down. God just has the best interests at heart, by trusting in God you can not fail since God has no ulterior motives for being there to suit your needs. God just wants everything that is useful for you while you uaxwat his unique creation. I will provide you with an analogy – A baby has total trust in their mother as there is an extremely special bond between mother and child since she had a hand in creating the baby as well as the baby depends on its mother to thrive. This baby could have a hard time surviving if this did not have trust in it.
