A TRUST ISSUE

Who can you trust? We trust people, yes we are guilty of this, that we don’t know or have a relationship with. For example; we trust a lawyer to represents us in a court room, whether we are guilty or innocent. We trust a doctor with our lives in the operating room. We trust an anesthesiologist to administer anesthesia so we do not feel any pain. We trust celebrities when they advertise products that they themselves don’t use or wear. We trust meteorologists to give us an accurate reading of the weather, and yes they have gotten it wrong on numerous occasions. We listen attentively to the advise and suggestions of doctors, lawyers, family, friends and having the nerve to comply to what they tell us. We must realize that the hopes we have of waking up after surgery is not up to the doctors or anesthesiologist but up to God. We go to sleep and once again fail to realize that it is not up to us to wake up but up to the being that has that decision in his hands, God, the creator of everything.

Help me understand why it is so hard for people to trust God? Why it is so easy for so many people to refuse God’s ultimate gift of His only begotten son Jesus Christ? What has He done or said that is wrong? If you believe that he has done something wrong, explain yourself and please do not blame him for outcomes that you yourself could have prevented. Yes, I will agree that Jesus did a lot of miraculous and impossible things but that was to show us who He was and who He represented at the time (God the Father). What is it that makes people choose to trust, believe and accept ordinary folks advise and commands but not the son of the lord (Jesus).

Jesus has told us why He came and what His purpose was. His task was never easy, His sacrifice beyond measure, His love limitless, His compassion endless and His divine authenticity was proven in the old as well as the new testament. So what is the problem? Who has a better offer or promise of eternal life? Who is willing to suffer and die so we could be free?

In John 14:1-7, He informs us that, “He is the way to God, the truth about God and the only One who can give eternal life.” He also tells us that “He has gone to prepare a place for us, where we will be with Him, where there are no aches, pains or devastations.”

 The question I must ask is are you prepared to receive Him? Are you ready for paradise? Are you practicing daily to live there in holiness, truth, purity, love and trust? Do you seek him first on a daily basis according to Matthew 6:33? Does your lifestyle tell or show the world who and whose you are? Deny yourself with the lust of this world and follow Jesus, the being who will make it right.

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. And that the eyes of your understanding will be enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power (Ephesians 1:17-19).

PATIENCE

Patience is a virtue everyone needs, especially Christians. Instead of attaching A.S.A.P ( As soon as possible) to everything, we should develop our patience, but nobody wants to wait for anything, they want their prayers answered, fame and fortune right away, everyone wants instantaneous success, but no time to wait. What we fail to realize half the time, is that our omnipotent God, sees and knows everything. He knows what we need before we even ask for it. He also knows the exact time and moment we need something.

As Christians, we also should know that God operates on His schedule, His time, His plans, and His will (Isaiah 55:8-9; Jeremiah 29:11). Patience develops, and strengthens your faith, hope, and trust in God (James 1:3-4; 1 Thessalonians 1:3), our God is patient with us, not to mention merciful (Romans 5:5). Did you forget that He told us, His grace is sufficient for us, and His strength is made perfect in our weakness ( 2 Corinthians 12:9).

God never lies, and He is not slack concerning His promises (Numbers 23:19, Hebrews 6:18, 2 Peter 3:9) so what is the problem?  Listen, instead of worrying, and trying to figure out how God is going to do it, you need to glorify Him, thank Him, praise Him, meditate on His promises, remain righteous, till you get answers, breakthrough, deliverance, whatever it is you prayed and asked for.

It’s only when we develop a solid relationship with Him, that we will get A.S.A.P answers to questions, and prayers, that’s when our focus will be on Him, and not our problems or situations, that’s when our faith, hope, trust, and patience takes full control. Job shows us what will happen when we are patient (Job 1:22, James 5:11), he got double for his patience.

They that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, they shall walk, and never faint(Isaiah 40:31). Our God does not do anything in a hurry, or a rush. The point is, our God took six days to create the Heaven and the earth, when He could have done it in one, so you better make a note of that, if you never knew.

And, the most important thing of all, is to make sure He gets the glory, praise, and thanks, because He deserves it, so be sure to tell it in the streets, highways, by-ways over the hills and everywhere.  If you don’t know the God I am referring to, or His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, who is the only way to Him according to John 14:6, then go to the top of this blog, and click on to the salvation page, then just follow the instructions, it will be the best thing you ever did.

I give God the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to relay His message to you, I pray it was a blessing to you as it was to me, and you will obey His will, and His way in the name of Jesus, amen.
