Trust in the Lord with all of you heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight.
Trust implies that there is inconclusive evidence to believe, but you are choosing to believe anyway.
Trusting in the Lord with all of your heart, means trust Him with your doubts. Recall the words of a man who wanted healing for His son.
23“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Many believe that God heals, but do they believe God will heal them. Many believe God provides, but do they believe God will provide for them. Faith is trusting in what God says He will do. Trusting in His Word written to us.
Doubts will come, and they are temptations that we must overcome, but we overcome them with Faith.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for. It is the evidence of things not seen. Well the bible is full of the evidence of things not seen. Trust is simply having faith in what God said about your situation. It is not a feeling, and it is not an emotion, it is a choice.
Choose to believe the evidence of the word and you wil…..
Take Rest in Understanding the Savior isTaking care of it!
Picture Yourself like this baby in the hands of the Father who loves you<3 Melinda
Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others. I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile. Blessings to you and yours, <3Melinda
