Sometimes, situations do not turn out the way we hoped or prayed. Will we trust God despite our feelings? Will we trust Him through our tears? Even when we cannot see His hand at work? We all face this choice at some point in our lives.
When we’re facing major life stressors, it’s more important than ever to trust God. The first step to trusting God with more intentionality is to identify what we need, then be honest with God about it. Through this exercise, I found peace in the seven names of God.
God, through Scripture, tells us He is the great “I Am.” In two small words, He proved His trustworthiness for whatever your situation. He is the alpha and the omega…the beginning and the end. Because He created everything, He knows everything. In this post, we’ll look at 17 reasons why we can trust God.
Have you ever faced circumstances that caused you to really search out the scriptures for answers? That’s what happened to me as I prayed for and grieved with a friend who had lost her husband. As a new widow, she wondered how she would make it on her own. As we prayed, I remembered the days my own mother lived as a widow and the years I spent learning to trust God for provision.
Have you ever longed for peace? I have. I just didn’t know that peace was a benefit of trusting God. For many years, I was hard-pressed to tell you what peace was or how to obtain it. All that changed when I took a liking to the book of Isaiah and discovered the pathway to peace.
