Just T.R.U.S.T. Him!

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding. In everything you do, acknowledge Him, and He promised to lead you down the right path" (Proverbs 2:5-6)

Sometimes it's difficult to trust God through the "tight" places in life. We look around and convince ourselves that He's either forgotten about us, punishing us, mad at us, or doesn't love us. When harsh things happen to good people - including us - we are more vulnerable than ever and have to T.R.U.S.T. Him on purpose.

T - Talk to Him in prayer. Tell Him what's on your heart. He's strong enough to take it. Be respectful, but be honest. Just talk to Him.

R - Remember His grace & deliverance in the past. You've been through some tough times before. Maybe not this tough, but life has thrown you some sharp curve balls. And YOU SURVIVED THEM. All of them. Remember that He brought you through then . . . and He can do it again.

U - Understand that His LOVE for you cannot be measured by or compared to your current situation. He said, "I have loved you with an everlasting love, so with lovingkindness I have drawn you to Me" (Jeremiah 31:3). God's heart toward us does not change. He loves us. Period.

S - Stay connected to Him & to other Believers who will speak life & victory into your situation. The worst mistake you can make right now is to turn away. To close your heart. To shut down your spirit. Yes, it's a hard place you're in . . . but don't let it harden your heart.

T - Testify about your deliverance BEFORE it shows up! Don't spend your time lamenting how bad things are, and don't allow others to do it either. Instead speak of the deliverance, the healing, the blessing you're expecting from God before it shows up and before your circumstances say it's coming. Don't wait til the battle is over - SHOUT NOW!

Be encouraged, My Friend. God HAS NOT FORGOTTEN YOU. Trust His heart when you can't trace His hand.

In Him, In Service, In Joy,

Pastor C.
