Learning to Trust and lean on God
Happy last day of the month 💃💃 How was March for you? For me, March has been the longest month since this year started 🤦 and I’m grateful its finally over 💃💃. I pray for us all that April will be the shortest, productive and fruitful month for us 🙏 . Our expectation will be exceeded and our desires met in Jesus’ name 🙏
Trusting God is really the easiest yet almost the most difficult task for us as believers. It’s easy to trust and lean on God when everything is going fine, smooth but what happens when it’s not all good and fine? 🤷
One of the greatest secret to intimacy with God is to come to Him as your only source of help and hope. This means that for every time you’re in need of anything, you look up to the Father as your only source of provision and answer. When you don’t and can’t understand why things are happening the way they are, you still hold on to the words of the Father and believe that they’re all working for your good. Romans 8:28 NKJV ‘’And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose’’
God often gives believers faith for things that our minds can’t always seem to come into agreement with. Our mind wants to understand everything: the why, when, how of it all. Often, when that understanding is not given by God, the mind refuses to believe what it cannot understand. So, we need to decide to believe. Believe the word, promise and revelation God gives to you personally even when you don’t understand it. Spend time in the word and search out what the scripture is saying about your situation, hold on to it, believe in it and walk in it 🚶
Sometimes, God reveals the end of a thing to us from the beginning and leaves us clueless on how we’ll get there because He wants us to have hope in the midst of the difficulties that we’d face on the way. He’s teaching us to trust Him in every step of the way. He’s teaching us to lean on Him and hold firm to His word. Proverbs 3:5–6 KJV ‘’Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path’’
Let your confession align with what the scripture says about your situation. Speak up about what God has said about that thing. Believe it even when the situation doesn’t look like your confession. The more you confess, the more your faith is strengthened to trust and believe God for the best.
Be grateful. Even when it seems like your situation isn’t looking like God’s promise to you, still be grateful. Appreciate God for all he has done for you in times past. Gratitude gives strength to your spirit saying that ‘’God who brought you out of your previous situation and did what you never imagined, can still do much more and see you through your present situation”
Think about what you’re thinking about. Learn to control your thoughts. Your thought pattern can be affected by what you see, hear and who you relate with. So, you need to be careful in these things. Your mind plays an important role in your trusting and believing God. Line up your thinking with God and His word. Phil 4:8 KJV ‘’Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any praise, think on these things’’
In April, I’m starting a very interesting and relatable Series💃💃. I’m excited about the things we’re going to be talking about in that series and I believe that we’ll all learn and be broken through that series. I hope I’d be able to share the backstory of that Series one day 😉.
Don’t forget to tell your family, friends and loved ones about Zoe 🙏. Don’t forget to share this link with them 🙏. Don’t grow in God alone, take them along with you.
Have a beautiful month in advance 😍. I’ll see you soon 🤗.
