Something to Trust For

Praise God, praise God, praise God, praise God. Wow, just a bit excited over here.
I strongly sense God saying to you and me: "I need you to trust me completely this time". Proverbs 3:5-6 is a reminder of the need to trust God completely. Maybe the reason why some things don't work out or partially work out is because we're still holding back, maybe we have to boldly say, Lord this time I'm holding nothing back - and actually give it all to Jesus.

I believe a need stirs up trust. Anytime God demands your trust, that's because He intends to meet a need (and He demands our trust daily).

Acting in trust means acting in obedience. Let's take an example from Luke 5;
v4. Jesus asks Peter to launch into the deep.
v5. Peter knows it's hardly possible for any catch at that hour, but decides to trust.
v6. Peter's trust was followed by an act of obedience.

I love verse 6. It says, reading from NIV; When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.

So now imagine what the case would have been if Peter ignored the call.  Oh, the miracles we often forfeit when we relent on trust. I always imagine what the story would have been if the relentless prisoner on the cross just believed in Jesus, like the other. Maybe you have a need that you've tried your best to resolve all by yourself; see, that's a good start - but even better; why not speak to God today and trust Him. Let Him lead you.

The entirety of life is in fact something to trust for. Who can be better trusted for the maintenance of a product than its manufacturer? Life and its journey is something to trust God for. Begin your trust journey today and see God in all you do.

Remain forever blessed.

Psalm 91: A Guaranteed Refuge 1

Psalm 91 [short series]. Psalm 91 is a commonly known Psalm that often raises doubts (e.g. Does it really apply to our present realities?), gets misinterpreted (e.g. If you trust God, no trouble will come to you) or gets undermined (e.g. It’s all a metaphor). But the message in the Psalm is such a profound encouragement to keep trusting in God because of the kind of refuge that only He can provide. As we will see in a 4 part study, the Psalm shows us why God is the only refuge you can trust (v2), and this is because: His refuge is guaranteed By His greatness: He can. v1, 11-12 By His promise: He will. v4, 14-16 His refuge is complete Through this life. v3-6, 13 Into the next life. v7-10, 16 His Refuge is guaranteed by His Greatness! Psalm 91:1, 11-12 He can always rescue! T

Eternal life is sacrificially following

Matthew 19:16-28. One of my favourite kids' exercises is the marshmallow test. Kids are given a marshmallow and left in a room. If they can wait for some time, they get more. You see kids staring, sniffing, poking and doing all sorts to the marshmallow. The point is to teach kids to wait for a better reward in the face of instant gratification. In the passage, Jesus gives a marshmallow test to a rich man, and he begins sniffing, poking - he gets sad! And it also made Jesus' disciples greatly astonished. Why was this? Because the gospel pattern of life will always look nothing like what the world calls living. Eternal life looks like sacrifice in the now for a future reward! A Present Sacrifice. (16-26) The rich man asks what good thing he must do to have eternal life (16). Jesus responds: only God is good; keep His commands (17). But the man replies, (paraphrased) "I am good too" wit

Psalm 91: A Complete Refuge 3

Psalm 91 [short series]. As we journey through life, sometimes we go through troubles beyond our control — an addiction, sudden financial lack, sickness, broken relationship, losing a loved one, a hope deferred. How do we navigate those seasons? Or maybe you are currently in such a season and wondering, "How do I live through this?" Previously [1] [2] , we saw that God's refuge is guaranteed. The Psalm also shows the completeness of God's refuge as a reason for how we can navigate the seasons of life. His Refuge is complete through this life! Psalm 91:3-6, 13 God rescues you from troubles beyond your reach and permanently deals with the cause of all problems, Satan himself. His refuge deals with: Sin: snare of the fowler (v3, 11-12) Snares are traps used to catch animals, often made with something enticing or luring, like a cheese trap for a
