Trusting God

October 17, 2016

Deeper LoveBy Amanda J. Seymour, Th.M.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Lean not on your own understanding.  (Proverbs 3:5-6)  When you are a child, you trust easily.  When you are an adult, you have to learn to re-trust.

Trusting God is not as most people think because it is not something we must do.  Rather it is something God does in us. This is because trust actually comes through God to us.  It is not something we have to do on our own. It is a gift He gives us that we can then give back to Him. All we have to do is be willing.  We must be willing to walk the trust journey with Him.  If you want to grow in your trust, I encourage you to pray this simple prayer: “Lord, please help me trust You.”

Trusting is not as difficult as you may think.  When you stand or stand up, you rely on your thigh muscles.  You lean on them.  When you trust God, you stand on the truth He has given.  Truth is like a spiritual muscle which strengthens us.  When we lean on the truth, it helps us to stand.

When we trust God with all our hearts, it is our greatest strength because our hearts are the place God’s love resides within us.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 says:

A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice[b]; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.[c] The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. 10 He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,[d] while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.

  4. he released a copy of his long form certificate, the mask is off. There should be no difference between what he released and what is on file in Hawaii. The only reason not to direct the DOH to release the file is to either a) keep from view the truth, or b) to continue toying with many good Americans, i.e. one big joke on many. After many loyal years of service, I no longer have full faith in this government, a sad state, a sad state indeed.3rd/12th

  5. Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent site!

  6. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your website provided us with valuable info to work on. You have done an impressive job and our entire community will be grateful to you.

  7. Simmons wrote an article on why okc should pay harden that everyone should read – writing this on my I-phone so don’t have the link This is good news for us – Kevin Martin really does not scare anyone and what i think will also hurt okc is losing dauqon cook, that guy always seams to hit a timely 3 This could also mean a star exodus from okc in a few years as they are now making it known they will not invest in a title contender and i have a feeling durant won’t be willing to play his career out on a team like that

  8. There are definitely a number of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to deliver up. I offer the ideas above as normal inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you bring up the place a very powerful thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around issues like that, however I’m positive that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both girls and boys feel the affect of only a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  9. I¡¦ve been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this site. Reading this information So i¡¦m glad to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I came upon exactly what I needed. I such a lot certainly will make sure to do not fail to remember this web site and give it a look regularly.

  10. Not sure about the statistics. Have to push myself to read the Spanish newspaper. Easier when sitting at the dentist office. Lots of info in that. About entering banks, it's amazing to have a state where you can still do that, here in Ecuador the guns laws were changed just a couple of years ago. Prior to that anyone could carry, so the story goes….Thanks for commenting…

  11. This design is steller! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  12. Great post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Extremely useful info specifically the last part I care for such info much. I was looking for this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  13. 跨年夜 抬頭賞「藍月」【聯合晚報╱編譯朱小明/綜合報導】2009.12.28今年的12月31日有些不一樣,除夕夜空將出現難得一見的「藍月」 (blue moon);所謂藍月不是指藍色的月亮,而是指同一個月內出現的第二次滿月,以「藍月」來形容其罕見。上次在除夕出現藍月是在1990å¹´,相隔已經19 å¹´,下次想在年終倒數計時看見藍月則要等到2028å¹´。滿月每29.5天出現一次,大部分的年度只有12次滿月,但是每年除了12次月亮盈虧之外,還多出了大約11天,這些多出來的天數累積下來,平均2.7年會出現一次藍月現象,預計未來20年會出現17次藍月。古人觀察到這種現象,而以藍月來形容其不尋常,這種說法最早於1528見諸文獻,英文並有「Once in a Blue Moon」的說法,以形容其難能可貴。而藍月落在除夕就更稀罕了,今年12月的第一次月圓已經出現在2æ—¥,下次則在31日除夕當天。澳洲天文學專家芮尼克說:「今年慶祝新年來到時,不妨抬頭一賞藍月。」雖然月亮不會有什麼不一樣,也不會變成藍色,但除夕賞月也挺有趣的。天文學家表示,月亮不會變藍,但有時因為地球大氣層的汙染,灰塵分散藍光,月亮看起來會偏藍。例如1883年喀拉喀托 (Krakatoa)火山爆發後,長達兩年的時間,肉眼看月亮都是藍藍的;1980年聖海倫 (St. Helens)火山爆發、1991 年皮納吐坡 (Pinatubo)火山爆發後也有藍色月亮的現象。

  14. My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Katmandu scrive:Una cosa che nessuno ha sottolineato ma che mi è venuta in mente ora anche se un paio di volte ci sono stati interventi al limite e molta aggressività in difesa gli irlandesi hanno avuto un ammonito i leoni noBene aggressività e disciplina non è facile giocare con sqadre così e arrivare così forti e con i giocatori che avevano schierato i dubliners

  19. I plead guilty possession of crack cocaine in 1993, the 2nd charge of manufacturing crack was thrown out yet still appears on my sled report; at the time of my arrest I was 25 y/o however at the time of conviction I was 26 y/o there has been no infractions for 17 years not even a parking ticket. The word misdemeanor appears next to the chargest on my sled report. Am I eligible for an expungement?

  20. Carissimo Carancini sono d'accordo con te riguardo l'Enrico Letta e zio.Riguardo Tremonti aspetto altri chiarimenti.Riporterò dopo, se convinto il tuo pensiero.Sono estimatore di Chavez e del suo coraggio ed essere colonnello dei parà è un merito.Sarei anche curioso chi è il suo ministro dell'economia in fondo è anche suo il merito.Come direbbero i tedeschi,leider abbiamo come governanti dei caporali semplici.rudel

That is clearly not and shall not be the case. ”I had those exact thoughts last year..and I bet youare right-many, many others did too..Instead somebody thought up “why not use this for political purposes”…

A strand in England was 50 pounds..I didn't buy it….still don't know the real name of them! Thanks for sharing some inspiration.Jenni

  25. On my friend’s blogs they have added me on their blog rolls, but mine always sits at the bottom of the list and does not list when I post like it does for others. Is this a setting that I need to change or is this a choice that they have made?.

  26. Big up to Norman Manley, Eric Williams and all brethren from the West Indies!On topic…The trick is to not get caught.

Of the three, two of them are dead.Damn, my bad, we wasn’t supposed to talk about that racist thing on this post. My bad Field.

  28. Moving the following line in the procedure a couple of lines up will do, no need for overloading new_sheet t_sheet := nvl( p_sheet, workbook.sheets.count() );So change it to: if p_sheet is null then new_sheet; end if; t_sheet := nvl( p_sheet, workbook.sheets.count() );

  30. Estoy de en su mayoria, pero segun los mayas . no era un cambio violento si no un cambio interno, del espiritu, tomaremos o algunos cambiaran respecto a lo negativo, cambiaran pra bien menos envidia, egoismo, mas misericordia y comprension pra con los demas , y no como ahora vivimos en un mindo de ambicion metalico material.

  31. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  36. I tried to submit on the 23rd prior to midnight, but the entry box was broken due to firefox 3. the entry submission box didn't appear and the javascript was broken. I send the redcarpetreporter team an email about it, but they didn't understand. So, my suggestion is: make it possible to do a submission. Maybe I'll be able to enter, if you do. Thanks a lot.Also, the official entry rules at people.com say 4 min max and no minimum on the video. I think they should sync to ur requirements. I read their rules and made the video accordingly: 1min5secoh well…

  37. earlier, scornful, dishonest, and unfair bloggers (who try hard to negatively influence science and undermine the natural scientific process) to come here in order to badly insult Prof. Strassler and his colleagues, than seing me asking questions .My reason for coming here is to learn physics from this great site, to defend science and Prof. Strassler who is a very clear headed, reasonable, honest, and great scientist, if he and his colleagues (or their great work) get insulted and attacked by the above mentioned blogger and his fans.Cheers

  38. (I'm also freaked out that my facebook profile appears in the comments. Didn't want that. Didn't realise I was signed in and didn't know it was going to happen. Stupid internet. Wish the comments came with instructions. Or a delete button.)

  39. Hélas, contre le consentement populaire, l’Europe a été faite et continue à être faite par des fonctionnaires. Les Politiques élus n’ont finalement que très peu de pouvoirs face aux Administratifs.Cela est ressenti par le peuple d’où le malaise.Que veut dire une monnaie unique sans un minimum de gouvernement unique?.

  41. Thank you a lot for providing individuals with an extraordinarily nice possiblity to discover important secrets from this blog. It is usually very great and also jam-packed with a good time for me and my office acquaintances to search your blog not less than three times in 7 days to read the new things you will have. And of course, we’re actually astounded for the splendid advice you give. Selected 1 points in this posting are essentially the most suitable I have ever had.

  42. Terren, what I mean by Reflection is more like a messy or approximate fractal (though a perfect fractal is also a possibility).For instance, the Self of a human being is not a perfect model of the human. And a human's model of his own self-image (which is a subset of his Self), is an even lossier model of that human, right?In this kind of reflection we don't have a perfect fractal-ity, but a valiant attempt and approximation thereof, created under circumstances of limited resources…

  43. okay, so this is UNBELIEVABLY RANDOM, but i know who eleanor ylvisaker is…my best friend’s uncle is jon, her husband, and i’ve stayed at her dad-in-law’s house like a bajillion times.

BEHOLD, i know who the heckola you (and vogue) were featuring.: ) kira
