Do You Really Trust God?

4 Apr

The key to a powerful prayer life is that it should always be about God. Too often we personalize it in order to try to get something from the LORD. We only drop to our knees when things have gone wrong in our lives. When we are in trouble, sick or some tragedy has hit our home. We fret and beg and pour out our hearts. Yet we forget to praise, honor and glorify God for all that he has done in the past and the many blessings He has bestowed upon us which we could never deserve. The Bible tells us that no sparrow in the sky falls without God knowing. How much more important is man than a bird! God knows what we have need of. But instead of worrying, He asks that we be still and know that He is GOD. If you  have a financial need, that’s when you should give financially to wherever you receive your spiritual food or where God’s people are working for the advancement of His kingdom.

 

Don’t pray for prosperity, sow what you have.The Bible is full of stories of those who gave everything and ended up with more than what they started out with. King David said he had never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. (Psalm 37:25)

 

Right now I am having financial difficulties due to an unexpected cut in my income. Yet, I am trusting God to provide. I have given back to Him what was left in my hand, which wasn’t much. But neither were the 5 fish and 2 loaves of bread, yet it fed 5,000 hungry people. I am also experiencing some health problems of which doctors and drugs are useless. I have decided to spend Easter Sunday alone with God for several hours of fasting, praising and prayer.

 

How about you? Do you really trust God to provide? Are you willing to give something back to Him?
