Do you trust Him?

Do you trust Him?

I decided to make God Lord of my life in August of 2016.  Ever since then, my life has been directed by Him.  I have found surrendering control to Him to be challenging at times.  Even the times I know God has told me to do something, sometimes I wonder why or if I Him heard right?  Have you ever been there?  The bible says in Isaiah 55:8, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.”  The truth is I often don’t understand why God is moving in a certain direction, why He is opening certain doors or closing others.  It’s clear and the bible tells me that my small brain cannot possibly be on the level of God’s and understand such things.  Yet and still I find myself feeling like a 5 year old child, wondering why. 

I’ve always been an “inquisitive little girl”, my Dad says.  I’m very curious and ask LOTS of questions until I receive clarity.  However, as many of you know when we say yes to God’s lordship, He doesn’t always answer these questions.  To be honest, He doesn’t want to be questioned, He doesn’t need to be.  He knows what’s best, so when he gives a direction, our response should simply be, “Yes” and that should be the end of it. The Spirit tells us to move in a certain direction and the job of the Believer is to move, with no questions asked.  Not only to move, but to move AND trust in God, having faith that His direction will lead to where He wants us to go.  “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord.  “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  This is the familiar passage from Jeremiah 29:11.  I know God has a plan for me because He is a Good Father.  He loves me, so if He tells me to move, I must move, whether I understand it or not.  When my patience runs a little thin or I grow weary, I have to pull on the word in Proverbs 3:5-6 where it tells me to, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him and he will make your path straight”.

There you have it.  My job is to trust Him, give it all to Him and allow Him to be God.  If we’re honest, sometimes we try to reason that maybe God didn’t say this or that or maybe we got it wrong.  However, deep down inside that still small voice of the Lord, is reminding us to trust Him.  God and I now have such an intimate relationship that I trust Him with EVERYTHING!  I trust him with my career, my future ministry, my future husband, my family, my finances, etc.  “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”, Romans 8:28.  This reminds me he is working in every area of my life and yours too!

What are you waiting on from God?  Some of us have been praying for spouses, children, healing, financial increase, career progression, educational advancement, ministries, etc.  Whatever it is that you’re waiting on, remember to trust God and have the faith that if it is His will for you, He will come through in due season.  God is good and faithful.  As you’re waiting patiently on Him, use your time to think back on all the marvelous things He’s done for you in the past and begin to praise Him in advance for what He is planning for you next!  I remember last year, I wanted to new job and a raise.  I had the faith for a 5% financial increase.  God ended up delaying my new role for a little while, but in the end I was blessed with an increase of 20%!  He stretched my faith and blessed me with more than I expected because He is a God that can do exceedingly and abundantly, above all we can ask of think! (Ephesians 3:20).  Our God is able! 

So get excited people of God!  Expect God to not only meet your need, but to go far above that!  Keep the faith and trust God to get your through.  Our God is faithful!
Not by might, nor by power, but my spirit”, says the Lord of hosts. -Zechariah 4:6

Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16….This is probably the most well-known bible verse today.  However, do we really know what God did?  The bible tells us that God “gave” his only son, Jesus, so that we, man/woman, could be saved.  Giving is often not easy.  God gave His only son...

The Love of My Life

In my season of singleness, I sometimes have feelings of loneliness.  I have met and spoke to other singles who have similar feelings.  One of the weapons I use to fight off these feelings of loneliness is writing/journaling.  I pour out whatever is inside of me on paper.  Sometimes those feelings are positive, in a state of thankfulness.  However in my periods of loneliness, the writing tends t...

Divine Appointments

Divine Appointments

Events and circumstances in our lives are not always just mere common occurrences but rather divine set-ups and many times they unfortunately go unrecognized. Hence, you did not recognize your answer or your blessing that you have been praying about.

The book of Samuel (Judge, Prophet & Priest) sites a clear situation in the case of Saul who had no idea he would be chosen as KING over Israel on a very ordinary day “going about” doing an ordinary task.  Saul was as ...

Testimonials: To God be the Glory!

January 19, 2015

O give thanks to the Lord for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.  Psalm 107:1,43

My boyfriend shot! As I finished preaching one Sunday morning and stepping off the platform to minister individually to the needs of people who had come to the altar.  Out from nowhere a young lady appeared, approached me and asked if I would come quickly out to her van in front and pray. Frantically...

The Beauty of Affliction

October 26, 2011

So what's so beautiful about affliction?  Just think, without affliction we may not of had our current President, Mr. Obama.  So disturbed by the United States troublesome state of affairs, it moved him to toss his name on the presidential ballot with a mission of making change.

So what's so beautiful about affliction?  It was because of injustices and hardships, amongst classes of people that Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., came from behind his pulpit of preac...

The Pillars of Cloud and Fire

June 24, 2011

A word to those tired of waiting, those desiring to forge ahead, those desiring change, those being re-directed, or those in preparation.  All you have to do is to become sensitive and obedient to his doings in your life as you cross your Red Seas, “a place of transitioning.”

We know that the Israelites while enroute to a better place God had ordained for them, ONLY moved by day when the cloud moved (as to direct them by day). The Word tells us “they tarried LONG...

Divine Timing

March 21, 2011

 Many of us have witnessed children who want things right now!  I must say that as adults our attitudes as it relates to this haven’t changed much.  We still want it our way or the highway. We want our small business (as if we could really handle it) to grow leaps and bounds— now!  We just got there yesterday, and we already want a job promotion—now! We want our children to grow-up—now!


It would do us good to become cognizant of the importance of time.
  Did you know that over 20 time...

Call Me Deborah! A Woman, A Prophet, A True Leader!

March 4, 2011

True divine leaders are handpicked by God himself, not humans.  Many times he selects ordinary people to carry out his will in the earth. Unlike humans, he'll choose, not on the basis of race, gender, background, looks, stature, education and other earthly criteria, as we have seen so clearly in scripture.

In the bible you'll find leaders in which "the people" chose, and then other leaders "chosen by God" himself whereby we often see a distinct difference. Deborah, the prophetess, was fortuna...
