The Trustworthy Master

God’s timing for our prayers is not like ours.  As believers in Christ, we know that God’s Word says in Isaiah 55:8 , “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

The more we dwell on the answer we’re expecting…The longer it seems to take for that answer.  It’s as if time is running in slow motion.

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

If we will re-focus by giving God the praise, that He so greatly deserves, it will change our whole outlook on life.

This stems from how much trust you have placed in Jesus.  How much can we honestly say that we trust our Lord and Savior?  Looking back over the years that we’ve known Him, has He ever let us down?

Remember the Aladdin movie where he takes the princess by the hand?  Before she received his help, Aladdin (while looking into her eyes, asked her), “Do you trust me?”

Do you trust Jesus today?

To place our trust in Him, we are enabling the Lord to move in a mighty way!  Oftentimes, people think that trust has a completely different meaning.  Merriam Webster’s definition is:

Noun usage: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something

Verb usage: to rely on the truthfulness or accuracy of: BELIEVE. : to permit to stay or go or to do something without fear or        misgiving.

When we trust our Lord and Savior, it should be with our entire life!  After all isn’t God the One that decides whether or not we wake up in the morning?

Let’s start the New Year by placing more of our trust in Jesus, than anything else in this world!  We know it’s oftentimes easier said than done, but as a believer in Jesus Christ, He’s the only One we can trust.

However, as an unbeliever, you have nothing to lose…but your soul.  (

Mark 8: 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths.

  1. He is faithful even when we are not. He has given me His mercy and grace when I deserved a harsh rebuke for wayward behavior. No one can show love and forgiveness like He does. We cannot measure up to Him for He is perfection and we are but dust that He formed into His image and adopts us as His children when we turn to Him and receive the gift of righteousness through the sacrificial death and resurrection for the redemption of our souls in Christ Jesus.
    Yes He is the only One to be trusted completely.

  2. The only One that I trust fully and completely and without any doubt, my LORD and KING!
