Trust Me

Hand in hand

I want to talk a little bit today about trust. Do any of you have trust issues, whether it is with your husband, family members, friends or God?

Being in ministry is tough and many times our trust gets violated, so we build up walls and decide just to not trust anyone. This is a dangerous place to be because before long it will affect your relationship with your husband, your children, your family, your church and your relationship with God. When we get hurt and it seems like we can’t trust anyone, what do we do? We start going into a shell and build up walls. Sometimes we build up those walls with people that aren’t even the ones that hurt us.

I want to challenge you to deal with your hurt and trust immediately. Don’t let it eat at you and cause you to build up those walls and affect everyone around.

The following devotional from “Jesus Calling” deals with this and I pray it will be a blessing to you.

Trust Me in the midst of a messy day. Your inner calm—your peace in my Presence—need not be shaken by what is going on around you. Though you live in this temporal world, your innermost being is rooted and grounded in eternity. When you start to feel stressed, detach yourself from the disturbances around you. Instead of desperately striving to maintain order and control in your little world, relax and remember that circumstances cannot touch My peace.

Seek My Face, and I will share My mind with you, opening your eyes to see things from My perspective. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid. The peace I give is sufficient for you.

Are you trusting God or have you built up walls with Him too? I pray you will work on any trust issues you may have and learn to trust again.
