I have decided to share personal things that God has been so faithful to teach me and even explain as to why He did it.
God is truly faithful. He desires us to be in a relationship with him but we must be childlike. Children have to ability to be completely dependent on their parents.
Children are teachable. A lot of times children are described as sponges, due to the fact that they absorb what ever they are introduced to.
God wants us to be completely dependent on him, he desires to be our teacher. He has created us in a way where by substances, encounters and influences leave an imprint on us. In the wrong hands you can see how those areas can damage us.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Proverbs 3:5 KJV
The word trust = Batach is described by Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee lexicon: confiding in any one. To throw one down on his back, to throw one cares on any one.
This translation encapsulates how God wants us to trust him. This requires unlearning bad traits that have tainted our view on trusting. God won’t throws us in the deep end when we can’t swim.
So what has God taught me about trusting him ? Simply that he is faithful. I have always prayed every now and then to be able to trust God more. I won’t say I’m completely there, but there’s been growth.
On a nice sunny day (nice intro) I had a dream that one of my friends from church Festus (unfortunately, fortunately we don’t speak often) messaged me , then in the afternoon he messaged and I was so surprised. So I decided to ask God why? Why did you reveal this to me? He proceeded to say, if I share the little things with you. When I share the big things with you, you will trust me.
Baby steps lead to a greater walk with God.
God is faithful, some put their trusts in chariots others in men. We, I must put my trust in God.
I pray your trust for God continues to grow, so he can share the “little” and “big” things which make up life.
In Jesus’ name
