How Do I Trust God?

"How do I trust God?" was the question posed at a recent Hope Meeting.  A real and honest question from a grieving mommy who is just weeks away from the one year anniversary of her son's death.  My quick response pours out the instruction offered in Romans 10:9-10, which reads...

"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."

If you have a desire or prompting in your heart to trust God, then do not hesitate to surrender to Him.  Acknowledge your sin and need for a Savior and be saved by asking Him to come into your heart and to take over your life.  This is where trusting God begins...first for your salvation, then with all other areas of life.  

Mindy, a dear and precious fellow mommy, added to this conversation by sharing some of her own personal struggles with the "why" questions and the pain of her grief since her miscarriage late last summer.  I, personally, was so encouraged by her willingness to share.  She spoke the truth about her grief and she spoke the truth about her Savior.  She recognized that even when we trust God, we are not immune to heartache, but that He is there and willing to walk us through the valley.  

Yes...God's Word is power!  2 Timothy 3:16-17 says this of God's Word...

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."

The testimony of a changed life is powerful too!  That's why I am excited to share Mindy's life story with you today.  May you be blessed by her story and realize that you too can trust God...
