On my early morning walk, feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders, I looked up through a small clearing in the trees. In one quick glance, I noted the sun, two airplanes traveling in different directions, an eagle soaring above the treetops, and a common sparrow.

Trusting God for the Big Things

I never question whether or not the sun will rise–I just look forward to basking in its warmth.

When I fly, I sit back in my too-crowded seat and busy myself reading a book or writing my own.

I never worry about how the pilot will get me to my destination, I just trust that he will.

I never get fearful those birds will drop from the sky (just maybe WHAT they will drop).

To my meek human mind, I don’t know how all those things defy gravity. I just trust God is going to keep them there. And I trust Him for a host of other things too: like keeping the earth spinning in orbit, keeping the sharks and whales in the sea and off the land, that summer’s heat will end and fall will come, etc.

Trusting God for the Little Things

If we are willing and able to trust God with such big things, why wouldn’t we trust Him with the aspects of our lives that aren’t as spectacular? The washing machine repair, a misunderstanding with a spouse, a college acceptance, or enough funds at the end of the month to pay the bills?

Why can’t we trust God with the little things? “God not only owns the cattle on a thousand hills, He owns all the hills.” Psalm 50:10 Read more for encouragement to trust God more. #faith #christianity

I’ve often said, “God not only owns the cattle on a thousand hills, He owns all the hills.” His resources are unlimited, His love is unfailing, His promises are true, and His plans are always good. He is trustworthy.

“You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus”
(Philippians 4:19 MSG).

What do you need to trust God for today?

Because of Him, #PeacePrevails

“Dr. Michelle Bengtson has written the Hope Prevails Bible Study not only from a neuropsychologist’s point of view but also from a woman’s heart who has personally walked out the dark valley of depression by trusting God even when He seemed far away.

As a Pastor’s wife and mentor I am thrilled for this material to be available to use as a guide to help others who find themselves on the same journey that Dr. Bengtson writes of. This study will not only benefit those who are going through depression but also those who are walking alongside those who are personally experiencing depression.

Every home around the world is touched in some way by anxiety and depression. The information and insight contained in this Bible study is material that God can use to bring deliverance and restoration.”
