Agitation Part – 9

Isaiah 26:3—You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

TRUST is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something according to the Oxford Dictionary. “Trust in God” is simply believing that He loves us, He’s good, He has the power to help us, He wants to help us, and He will help us.

Christians are called believers, but many times, we are more like unbelieving believers. We trust our friends, the bank, the stock market or the government more than we trust God and His Word.

If we say we “trust” God, it means we are committed to His Word. God wants us to put Him first in our lives. He wants us to put our confidence and trust in Him, all the time, in everything.

Do you trust anyone you don’t know? The fact is that the better you know someone, the more you tend to trust that person. And when it comes to God, there are a million and one reasons to trust Him.

We have to habitually study the Word to really have confidence in Him and trust Him and know we can hear Him. Plants must be watered, and so must faith. The Holy Spirit will “water our faith” through the Word of God. As we spend time reading and meditating on the Scriptures, we develop a strong spirit. Then we can hear God speaking to our heart – where He dwells in us – and make decisions based upon what He’s leading us to do, not just what we may think, feel or want.

When we go beyond what we want, what we think and what we feel and do what the Word and the Spirit of God tell us to do; we are able to have peace. We come to a place where the blessings of God – His righteousness, peace and joy – overflow in our life.

Life is simple and peaceful when we come to God like little children and say, “God, I don’t want to live on my own. I want to trust You. When I don’t know what to do, I’ll trust You. When I don’t understand why, I’ll trust You. I’ll do my part with Your help, and when I’m done, I’ll trust You to do the rest.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 — Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths 

When we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, the Spirit of God comes to live inside us. This is one of the greatest blessings of salvation: We don’t have to go through someone else to get to God. He dwells in our heart and we can learn to hear His voice.
