Trusting God Brings Joy and Peace

Post by Evangelista_GP on Thu Aug 04, 2016 12:49 pm

‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.’

Romans 15:13

Trusting God is so much simpler than not trusting Him. When you doubt God, His Word, and His promises, you’re left to your own devices and reasoning when it comes to working things out. And as a result you get stressed out. Take a moment and read the following three verses, then think carefully about what they mean: ‘But the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard did not combine it with faith. Now we who have believed enter that rest’ (Hebrews 4:2-3 NIV 1984 Edition). ‘He who has once entered [God’s] rest … has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labours’ (Hebrews 4:10 AMP Classic Edition). ‘Come to Me, all you who labour and are … overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls]’ (Matthew 11:28 AMP Classic Edition). How are you supposed to approach God? In faith! The Bible says: ‘Without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that … He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]’ (Hebrews 11:6 AMP Classic Edition). That means when you come to God, you must do the believing. And when you do, you’ll receive His joy and peace. These two things are God’s will for you; they were bought and paid for at the cross. Christ’s work is already finished, and the only thing that remains to be accomplished is for you to believe. When you do that, God will respond and bless you every time!

Job 25-27, 1 Cor 5 (Bible in one year)

I have indeed experienced that to doubt brings nothing else than stress. When I do so, I start to look for my own solutions and I realize that I am limited without God's help. It's better for us to stay in faith. If we lack faith, we should ask God to increase it and He will. I always ask Him to give me the level of faith that goes with my trials. Also, when I find out that doubt is starting to take place, I repeat incessantly: " I have faith" until I really feel it. No matter what our battle is to have faith and the Almighty will do the rest.
