I used to worry a lot.I still do sometimes.I am afraid of not achieving my dreams .Sometimes I ask myself “What if in the next five years nothing really changes in my life or what if I never really get to achieve my dreams”.When times are tough and not going our way ,we find it very difficult to trust God.This is because we hold on tightly to things that we think are good for us and therefore when they don’t go our way we become hopeless.When things go in a way that I had not expected or planned in my mind, I tend to get really worried because I don’t want to fail.However,the more I get to understand about trusting God ,I realize that I spend so much time worrying about things that I shouldn’t worry about.I realize that I should Let God.I should Let God work for me.
Trusting God means that He is good , He loves us and He will come through for us.The problem is that most of the time we forget to trust God and instead trust other things.We trust our friends, our government ,the stock market or even our bank accounts and forget that our Faith should be in God.When we have endless thoughts about our future,our careers or marriage ,we get worried and lack faith in Gods promises.God wants us to trust in Him alone ;In the book of Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He shall direct your paths”.Because of facing a lot of disappointments ,we find ourselves depending on ourselves.You get to a point where you feel like you are facing the world alone, especially when things don’t go as you expect.You fall apart and feel like you have the whole weight of the world on your chest.When one is at that point,it gets hard to see how God will get you through.But that is the time you should completely trust God because in the book of Isaiah 40:31 “But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed.They will rise on wings like eagles;they will run and not get weary;they will walk and not grow weak”.
The first thing you have to do is to depend on God alone.You should understand that you are never alone and God is there loving you everyday.Put all your plans and expectations aside and surrender to His plans for you. Don’t allow anything to make you lose hope because the book of Joshua 9:11 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and Courageous .Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”.Seek God and ask Him for patience.Trust that He knows what is best for you and that He shall provide.Its all about Faith.Faith in God.Leaving all your worries to God and letting Him do the work for you.I think its natural for us to want to control our lives but its through our weakness that we understand that we cannot make it without God.God’s strength is revealed in our weakness.Because in our weakness the power of God is manifested in our lives.We also have to form a habit of reading His word so that we have confidence in Him.When we spend time reading and meditating in His word ,God speaks to our heart and dwells in us .When God dwells in you, He leads you to make decisions through His spirit .
Life is very simple when we learn to trust God and not live on our own understanding.Because He gives us peace.Its not wrong to have desires ,however, learn to let go of what you think is best and let God’s will be done.When you are fearful and worried, know that God is worthy of your trust and adoration.Maybe your present circumstance makes you feel alone, however know that as long as you are in Him you are in His love.Don’t let circumstances change your faith.Your submission to Him will lead to peace and joy.Just trust in Him and He will come through for you.
