Got trust issues?

More Jesus - Less Religion - Book CoverIf you are having a hard time trusting God, ask him to ease your fears. Ask him to heal your distrust. Then do your part. Look at the people who have betrayed you. Find out how much their influence affects your lack of trust. And do not allow those problems to rob you of a full relationship with God.

Then ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?” Examine your motives and explore what great things could come even if your worst fears were realized. Do whatever it takes to grow in your trust in God.

Make a bold move and trust God today. Surrender more and more to him. You will not be disappointed. Your trust will not spare you from the evils of the world, but it will protect you from a life without purpose. And under God’s plan, every pain will have a purpose, and from every misery will come meaning and the opportunity to minister to others who also struggle.

~  Excerpted from More Jesus, Less Religion by Stephen Arterburn and Jack Felton

How can  you trust God more today?

  2. Now is a good time to get any holes in our relationship with the Father fixed. He’s anxious to set our misconceptions and misunderstandings straight so we can get down to loving Him!
