do I trust You?

Arriving one minute past my scheduled bus time was enough to set me off this morning.

I had enough time to quickly grab a chai latte at my usual Starbucks beside the stop, so I hustled over to order, thankful I could get caffeinated before I made it to work.

What God prompted my barista to post on my cup took me momentarily by surprise, then made me laugh.

Where you go,I go. (7)

 

“Hit Me with your best shot, fire away.”

God clearly spoke to me about trusting Him as my Protector and Provider through these 80’s lyrics.  Which is just like Him to take something familiar and wrap it in His glory as He delivers it afresh to us, isn’t it?!

Once I thanked Him for the reminder, He brought a few verses and a favorite older song to mind, to reinforce the message.

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll att

 If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.”Matthew 6:30-31 MSG

I don’t need to worry about things, because I matter to God. I can relax and let go as I place my trust in Him.

Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions.

“People who don’t know God and the way He works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how He works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”  Matthew 6:32-33 MSG

When I make Him my focus, He will meet my needs.

Nothing will be missed, because He can’t help but take care of those He loves!

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now.

Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matthew 6:34 MSG

I can trust Him. He has never let me down, despite what my momentary feelings try to loudly squawk when I take my eyes off of His face.

Copy of Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now.“Sometimes my little heart can’t understand what’s in Your will, what’s in Your plan. So many times I’m tempted to ask You why,
But I can never forget it for long. Lord, what You do could not be wrong. So I believe You, even when I must cry. Do I trust You, Lord? Does the river flow? Do I trust You, Lord? Does the north wind blow? You can see my heart, You can read my mind,
And You’ve got to know I would rather die than to lose my faith in the One I love. Do I trust You, Lord? Do I trust You?”                  -Twila Paris, Do I Trust You?

So today, I declare my choice to trust. To let You provide. To let You fight for me. To stay under the cover of Your wings, and steep in Your love.

  1. I love this! “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matthew 6:34 MSG

    This whole post was truly for me today (Okay, I will share….lol). We have gone through more job loss and ups and downs again – and He is forever training me to t.r.u.s.t in Him alone. Anytime I think I have gotten there, He shows me I am weak and He is strong.

    I also love the “steep your life in God” part…I actually have this sort of written down in my notes too! God is so good and I can’t thank Him enough for using your post today as major encouragement for us. God bless!
