Trust God!

Trusting God to another level. Is challenging at times. It’s like you don’t think certain things will ever happen for you. We get all sad and blue, cry, restless, hopeless, sleepless, etc.

It says in scripture: Hope deferred makes the heart sick…[Proverbs 13:12] AND that's exactly what the enemy wants. He gets no greater joy than to know we don’t TRUST in our GOD! He loves to see us stumbling. He’s excited when this occurs b/c he knows he is winning, in our lives. He wants us to quit, to stop moving forward. He wants us to stay in the place where everything is the same b/c then you can’t Glorify God. That is the JACKPOT for the enemy!

Yes, life is hard. We can all AGREE on that. BUT when we have a relationship with GOD and TRULY BELIEVE in HIM and His POWER! He will give us peace in the midst of our storms!

They were times in my life when I was so stressed about life and it’s issues. I would have anxiety attacks, severe pain in my stomach, couldn’t sleep, the works, etc.  When I went to the doctor about the pain in my stomach, to make sure it wasn’t any health problems. They would say: it was stress related. They even put me on bed-rest for a week once and told me to not do anything but REST.

God wants us to REST in Him! 

God wants us to completely rely on Him in ALL things. God says: “…Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you REST. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find REST for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-29  

The more, I relied on God to help me in my situations. The less, I had sleepless nights, anxiety attacks, stomach pains, etc. When these things occurred I realized that they were signs, I wasn’t really relying on God fully. So, little by little - I decided to lay my issues on the altar AND you know what GOD solved them each time I completely gave it to Him.

When we try to do things, we have no business doing in our own strength. He will give us a buzz via the Holy Spirit, to prevent us from getting deeper in our mess. He ALWAYS gives us a warning. We just need to be attentive to the Holy Spirit & OBEY!

For example: I will admit that sometimes I am a little impatient. ;-) BUT when I find myself trying to do something in my own strength to make something happen faster b/c oh God, is just taking too long. I catch myself. I’m like Coasta – uh, what you doing “STEP BACK child” and let God do this…b/c if you do may not do it correctly and miss out on something…but letting GOD handle it – He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you ask or think. So, just move out the way and sit your little self down and REST AND Let God be GOD girl!  Amen!

AND I stop in my tracks and I’m like you know what yeah…here you go GOD! What was I thinking!?!

I encourage you to DO IT! I promise you it works! His power will never waver! It is unchanging! GOD is FOREVER FAITHFUL! 

Be attentive to the Holy Spirit! He won’t let you down and don't ever lose your HOPE, have BIG FAITH b/c when your desires cometh – you will be like a TREE OF LIFE. Rejoicing with an unspeakable JOY b/c your Father who is FOREVER FAITHFUL, kept His promises to YOU! REST in Him! TRUST Him!
