Trusting God is a way of life for believers. On Earth we will have tribulation. So don't be surprised when it happens. Just be prepared for it. Put on the whole armor of God found in Ephesians 6:10 to 20. The shield of faith is part of that armor and it will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. No need to be afraid when you are attacked, God is on your side.
The Word of God says; He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting God. His heart is established; He will not be afraid, Until he sees his desire upon his enemies. Ps 112:7-8
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, My stronghold and my refuge; My Savior, You save me from violence. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised; So shall I be saved from my enemies. 2 Sam 22:3-4 NKJV
One word picture about trusting God can be seen in “my Stronghold”.
A stronghold physically was a huge wall made up of many stones that were cemented together with mortar. Spiritually you can have a stronghold of beliefs in your heart.
Your heart is established trusting God when you remember the faithfulness of God toward you daily. Meditate on the many times He has come through for you in the past when you could not see a way out. He has never failed you.
Even when things go wrong for a time. It may seem as though God has forgotten His promises as the enemy says, "where is your God now?" In the end God will always prove faithful to you personally as He has throughout history. Have faith in God.
It is a decision you have to make with your free will.Will you believe a God who can not lie? Or the father of lies who cannot tell the truth? Tell that lair to be gone in Jesus Name resist him and speak the Word of God as a weapon. God IS good ALL the time and His mercy endures forever.
God draws a line in the sand. Which side will you be on? That is the mortar that holds the stones together. The stones can be seen as the promises of God, your belief in God is the mortar.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus. Gal 2:16 NKJV Trusting God is relying on Jesus and not your own abilities, strengths or any thing else. An example is the Rich Young Ruler. Instead of being able to give every thing away trusting God he trusted in his riches and missed learning how to enter the Kingdom of God that is within us.
Most Christians have not yet learned that no matter how dedicated you are to God it is impossible to over come your sin nature on your own. As Jesus said with man it is impossible but with God all things are possible. Jesus won victory for us on the Cross, He is the only thing you need.
The kingdom of Heaven is a place, but, the Kingdom of God is in our hearts. It's the leading of the Holy Spirit in us. It's a way of knowing how, a way of doing things, it's a method of acting. Jesus came and brought to the earth the Kingdom of God. He taught how to enter the Kingdom by His example of trusting His Father in Heaven alone for everything.
Another example was when King David took a census and numbered the army. Ever wonder why God was so upset with David? It was about a heart condition of not trusting God. King David made a critical mistake. He was putting his faith in the power of his army and not in God.
That lack of trust opened up a door in the spirit where the enemy got in. That mistake could have whipped out all of Israel. Keep your eyes on Jesus resting in Him alone and keep trusting God.
The Lord said to Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Cor 12:8-10 NKJV
Ps 62:8 O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. New Living Translation.
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.2 Sam 22:31KJV They cried to God in the battle, and he was entreated by them; because they put their trust in him.1 Chron 5:20 Webster
Ps 18:3-4The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies. Webster
Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. Ps 16:1 Webster
