In God I Trust
To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in You I trust, O my God.
In our culture it is so easy for us to look to many things to put our trust in, instead of God. We can focus attention or trust on finances, marriage, job security, family, and even our church. But, God wants us to put all of our trust in Him. God is the one that we can put 100 percent trust and faith in at all times. The economy will fall, marriages can and do go through hard times or even divorce, a job can be lost at anytime and our families have let us down in multiple ways. Even the church is not perfect; putting our trust in the church sets us up for being let down.
But, God is faithful. Even through the hard times --the really challenging times of financial ruin, divorce, sickness or even death-- God is still faithful. Focus on God and ask Him to meet you where you are. To give you what you need and to fill your every desire. Don’t be surprised when He does meet you where you are even if your circumstances do not change. So many of us think IF our circumstances change then God is for us and if they don’t, He is not for us. God is for your regardless of your circumstances. Trust in Him.
Father, God help me to live my life with full trust in You. Father, I want to have deep faith that is grounded in You and not in my circumstances that surround my life. You are always faithful and You are always good. Thank You for being my rock.
