The first essential element of trusting God was T-Take Him at His word (know that God won’t lie, and that we can believe He will do what He has said He will do). The second essential element of trusting God was R – Rest in His Presence (rest in the knowledge that He is in control rather than striving to make things happen in our own strength). The third essential element was U – Understand the Outcome Doesn’t Depend on Me (shift the responsibility for the outcome to God’s shoulders).
Today, we’re going to talk about the fourth essential element of trusting God which is S – Accept That God Is Sovereign.
God is in control of all things and rules over all things. In accepting God’s sovereignty, I agree He is the supreme source of all power and authority.
Whereas I struggle with many things, nothing is too difficult for Him. God can do all things and accomplish all things. Nothing is too difficult for Him, and He orchestrates and determines everything that is going to happen in your life, in my life, in America, and throughout the world.
Whatever He wants to do in the universe, He does, for nothing is impossible with Him (see Jeremiah 32:17).
Will you trust God’s sovereignty today?
U – Understand the Outcome Doesn’t Depend on Me.
S – Accept That God Is Sovereign.
T – Testimony of Others and My Own Previous Experiences

I am enjoying this series. I find the “truths” to be so comforting. I am going to write these down and carry them with me always to remind me when I want to control things or are anxious. Thank you!
Darlene, I’m glad this series has been helpful to you. God makes His way plain…we tend to complicate it. Stick with His truth. When we place it in Him, #TrustPrevails!
