John 14:1 ” Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me.”

When Jesus said this to the disciples their heads were spinning…the hour darkened by the shadow of Judas’s betrayal and Peter’s failure. Jesus was telling them to trust when it seemed like their whole world was falling down around their ears. We all know, trusting God isn’t easy. And it’s not passive on our part. Rather, trusting God is a very rigorous act of the soul, where we deliberately choose to hold on to the promises of God despite the adversity we may be going through. So how can we trust God? By trusting in His Word and speaking it into our lives…such as, God’s infinite power and wisdom is without limit…His plan and purpose for my life was established before the beginning of time…Nothing will ever happen to me without my Heavenly Father’s knowledge…and, God cares for me! And His care is constant, total, sovereign, and infinitely wise and good. Trusting God is never easy, but as we learn to trust Him, our trust grows and with it comes peace, comfort, and hope.
