"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
Every single human being on this great big universe has desires! Admit it everyone has at least one or two things that we want or wish to do! God knows ALL the desires of our hearts! He loves to spoil us, but at times He test our faith and waits just long enough for us to trust in the Lord for all things. We trust God with our faith and our love, But why not EVERY thing else?
Psalm 37:4-6 “ and he will give you the desires of your heart commit your way to the lord; trust him and he will act…. ."
God wants us to commit everything unto Him, so that we can trust Him to do what He desires for us! The more we trust the Lord, the more God strengthens our faith. However, everyone knows that! Another thing we know is that it is very easy to trust in the things we can see, that is understandable! From time to time God gives us a nudge to see how much we trust in Him, when we do not what we are going to do from day to day!
As soon as we all seem to be giving up, God shows us His amazing mercy and love! For example, more than five months ago my family and I was getting very discouraged, because the Snowden life-style is not exactly easy! Growing up a Pastors daughter is not always what it looks like, on top of that having a very sick Father! So after nearly three years of not having a vacation we were wanting and needing one. It didn't have to be fancy or anything, if we could just get away for a while. However, it seemed that no matter what we did or tried there was always obstacles all around! God shut the door here, and it was too hot there, and this place was closed, etc… . So, we were giving up 'the hopes' for a vacation. The family gathered and prayed for one last time, giving up the desire and need, completely to the Lord. That very day, God supplied SO miraculously, that the whole family had tears in their eyes at one time or another! He just wanted to show us that when He does something, He goes all the way! So the very next day we packed, made reservations and we were on our way to a two-week vacation to Florida (our favorite place, the beach)!
Now, I am not saying that trusting God is a ‘piece of cake,‘ but very far from it. Or that He will give us ‘things’ in return. Yet, supplying us with the strength to know that He is always there. Thus, directing our steps and showing us where and what to do. In our life style, it seems to get harder, because we have more and more to be worried about. At times, it can weigh, one down so much it is hard to even think about trusting the Lord, believe me it gets really tough!
Living in the Hands of God is a pleasure to those who see His Hand under and all around them. Knowing then, every time He picks us up (after we have fallen or are hurting). Even through our battles and trials, the one question that needs to be asked is; "What do people see through your reactions to your situations?"
It doesn't matter the situation, but it is the reaction that we show, for those who surround us at that time; I say, "Watch your attitude to the problem." Though sometimes, life just will not relent from the constant battles that we are faced with everyday. That is when you sit down, take a deep breath and tell God every one of your problems big and or small!
To get to the point, ANY problems that we have at that moment, just give them to the Lord! He wants us to run to Him in time of need. We human being’s make things so complicated when it comes to hard situations. God made us that way so we can learn to lean on Him at all times!
