Always Trust God
December 10, 2023
"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him." Job 13:15
If we were honest, each of us have been through something at one time in our lives that have caused us to think about giving up. We have had those valley experiences that have seemingly lasted longer than what we wanted them to last, and we felt like God had forgotten about us. As we went through those times it became increasingly more difficult to trust what we could not see or feel any, and we began to do things our way, instead of waiting on The Lord. Somehow in the midst of it all The Lord gives us a glimmer of hope to let us know He has not forgotten about us. Job was going through some difficult times and lost everything that he had including his children, and in all that he went through he never blamed God. The Scripture reminds us that, even in all that Job went through he proclaimed a great faith in God by proclaiming, though He slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain my own ways before Him. I encourage you today that no matter what you are going through or how difficult it may be, keep your trust in The Lord. Do not allow circumstance and situations to bring you down, keep your trust in The Lord. Do not allow what you see in front of you to keep you from trusting in what The Lord has said for your life. Even when all the chips are down, trust in The Lord. Even when everyone else has given up and walked away, keep your trust in The Lord. When you do not understand what and why you are going through what you are going through, keep your trust in The Lord, and maintain your faith in Him always. The road of life is not always going to be easy, and you will hit some potholes along the way, but keep your hand in God's hand and He will see you through. No matter what it is I may face in life The Lord has been too good to me to ever give up on Him, and no matter what, I will always trust The Lord. Since all my trust is in The Lord all of the time, I know for sure, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord all my trust is in you, and I know that you will always bring me out and make a way for me. I trust you even when it is hard, because I know that you will never give me more than I can handle. Thank you Lord for leading and guiding me through it all. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
