I Will Trust Him

Nahum 1:7 “The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him

The Lord knows them which are His, and his eye is always on them. Time, place, speech, or the way we dress cannot obscure his vision or dull his hearing. He can discern Daniel in the den; Jonah lodged in the belly of the fish, Peter in prison, Lazarus wrapped in rags, or Abel rolled in Blood. He can call them by name, and send his angels to comfort them, for God knows those that are His.

 

Many talk about trusting God, however the truth shines in that great day of trouble. The true believer is calm and quiet in his God, and takes refuge in His strong tower. Everybody can find a bird’s nest in the winter when the trees are bare, but what about when the green leaves hide them. The believers faith and life is put on displayed by adversity. The true believer shines in times of tribulation, for His trust lies within the Lord.

Do you truly trust in the Lord? Now I am not talking about saying you trust Him , but do you live in your trust of Him? Does the trials and tribulations of life cause you to seek comfort in things of this world?

Give It All To Jesus

1Kings 10:2 “And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart”.

It sometimes can be a unwise thing to pour your heart out to someone, Samson found this out the hard way as he bore all to Delilah. Yet if we could meet with Solomon who could solve all our difficulties, we might wisely do so. But we have one with us now who is greater and wiser than Solomon in Jesus, who is incarnate wisdom.The problem is ,when it comes to Jesus we are all to silent,and with our worldly friends we talk way too much, just look at some of the stuff we see daily on social networks. This is an Evil that must be changed.

We ought to share with Jesus all that is in our heart, when we neglect to be intimate with him we cheat ourselves out of a blessing. He said cast all your cares upon him. He is inviting us to talk and share with him. To conceal anything from so true a friend betrays the friendship as shows that there is something wrong to be hide. It shows a lack of confidence in his love, his sympathy, and even his ability to fix what ever the situation. Between the bride and the bridegroom there can be no secrets or the love will be  hurt,the marriage shaky. Besides how can you keep something from Him who knows all things. He knows our sorrows, our joys, our service,our plans, our successes and our failures, he understands our desires, our fears our loves and our mysteries, but he wants us to trust and love him enough to share them with him, he is the savior of all that will hinder us from his eternal peace and his everlasting rest. There is more to letting Jesus into your life than just opening your heart, you must give him your heart and all that lies within it.
The believer must draw near with full assurance of faith, come and tell him all your wants and desires freely, without concealing anything from him, for that shows a distrust and lack of faith.The stronger the faith is, the more the heart will share and it will share more completely. Is there anything you want you cannot tell the Lord? Is there any sin you feel you cannot confess before him, any person in your heart you haven’t share with Jesus.Think of all the hurt and pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer. Open your heart, share your heart, give him your heart, Jesus never fails……..

A Cry From The Heart

Isaiah 55:1 ” Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat;  yea come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.”

Here we have a invitation from the depths of God’s heart. He says come, everyone come. All who thirst or hunger. The poor, poverty stricken, all are invited to come.  He urgently gives an invitation that offers rest and peace for all who come. God invites the weary to come to Him so they can experience rest for their souls.

 

The key to experiencing this rest is having a right relationship with God, something that can happen only if you have a personal relationship with Jesus.We all have responsibilities that drain us and difficulties that wear us down.We can let the world drag us down its weary path, or we can join our lives with Jesus, who wants us  to know that He’s eager to have us in His yoke of care, guiding us, giving us help for our present needs, and assuring us that He has a plan for us that includes rest and peace, with everlasting life.
So he tell us to come, leave where you are, the situation you are in and come to him.The promise is when you come to Him with everything he will give you rest. Rest from worry, from need, from doubt, rest from the cares of this world,for he said you don’t need money but come and buy; be filled.The invitation has been extended,will you accept it?

Created In Christ

Ephesians 2:10 ” For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. ”

 

We who profess to be born again. Those who my the confession of their own faith claim to be born of the spirit of God, are thus claiming to be Christ like. These are not words to be just thrown around lightly. We must remember the world is looking, there are others who are reading the word of God in the life that you are living. We who profess Christ are ambassadors to Christ.

 

Now this I snot to say we are to live a life perfect and sin free, but our short comings should be the acceptation and not the rule. If we believe that Christ rose with all power there should be some evidence of this in the life that others see us living. People should see love for others in our life. Ours should be a life of prayer which offers hope to those lost in darkness. Just as many of us resemble our earthly parents, there should also be some resemblance to our heavenly Father seen in us.

 

The text says we are  His workmanship; The work of God, the creator and maker of all things. We have been created in Christ, in Him who there is no sin we have now been created in him unto good works. We are to be the example which God ordained , and thus we should walk or live in the profession of our faith.  Jesus rose with all power let us live like we believe this truth.
