Romans 15:13 NIV
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Today as you start your day, look to the God of hope to fill you with all joy and peace. Put your trust in His infinite Love and Goodness. You will never be disappointed. You will never be abandoned. You will never be forsaken. And as you place you trust in God and His ability to provide for you, you will come to know the power of the Holy Spirit as He strengthens your hope.
Trusting in God equals faith in God. Hebrews 11:6 tells us "without faith it is impossible to please God". So in order to please God, we must walk in faith. The key to trusting in God is found in knowing Him. We MUST study the Scriptures and search for Him there. Once He is found, we must meditate on Him. On His nature, His attributes, and His love for us. Only when we seek to know and understand Him, can we freely and truly say that we trust in Him.
Trust goes even deeper. It's knowing God will sustain you no matter what the situation or circumstance [Psalm 23]. It's knowing that He has your best interest at heart [Phil. 1:6]. It's knowing that if He was willing to sacrifice the most important Person in His life (His Son) for you, then surely He will never abandon you or let you down [Heb. 13:5b-6]. It's knowing that He will always remain faithful to His Word [2 Tim. 2:13 amp].
If He has promised you something in His Word, then believe it, trust in His Word and His promise to you [2 Cor. 1:20]. He will never go back on His promises [Num. 23:19 & Is. 14:24]. If He says He will lead you in the path that you should go[Ps. 23:3], then even if you cannot see what is down the road, feel secure in knowing that He can. It's not as important to know where each step is leading you as it is in knowing Who is leading you. So learn to trust in Him today. Get in faith today by getting into His Word. The Word says "you will find Me when you search for Me with your whole heart". [Jer. 29:13] It's important to you and it is worthy of Him for you to do this.
