Please, Trust Me!
“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footing set, or who laid its cornerstone–while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?” Job 38:4-7
If Jesus is your Savior, then you’ve believed and accepted that He died for your sins on that cruel Roman cross. If He is your Lord, then He is in charge of your life–you’re bought and paid for! Essentially, you are a willing disciple–a slave–doing the will of your master at every turn. Does that sound like any Christians you know? Does it sound like you? I believe the Savior part is easy enough to accept once the scales are removed from our eyes–the Spirit witnessing all the while. The harder part is submitting to God’s authority on a daily, or should I say “secondly” basis. Often, we just don’t trust God to handle it in our best interests. Let me ask you this rhetorical question… If God could speak the world into existence, cast the stars into the sky, and give us breath and life… why don’t we believe He can take care of the minute details of our lives? Why don’t we take Him at His promises? He said to bring Him EVERYTHING! Need we be reminded that the only one who gains when we are rendered unfaithful is our old adversary, Satan himself! Sure, we’re saved… but are we worth a nickel to our Master?
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
