trust me

 All He asks us to do is trust Him.

About a month ago, a couple came and spoke to us at BCM about their ministry and where the Lord has led them. The night was very encouraging and exactly what I needed to hear at the time...and some things that Becca said are still with me. (Check out their blog; it's amazing stuff: http://thestanleyclan.blogspot.com/) I remember her saying that when the Israelites were following the Lord to the Promised Land, He gave them enough provision for each day. He didn't want them to get so caught up in thinking about their needs that they missed out on what He wanted to show them that day. Have we taken the time to sit back and just think about all that we have to be grateful for today?

I find it very easy to trust God in my speech and then act like I have to make things happen for myself. This is diametrically opposed to Scripture! I am not supposed to be self-sufficient. He knows my needs, and it is He who works all things together for the good of those who love Him. So why do I think I have to make things happen on my own? He is in control. He is sovereign, and He hasn't left me yet.

My friend Stephen sang this at church a couple months ago, and the lyrics touched my heart. I think this is something we all struggle with, and the Lord doesn't want us to struggle with doing what we were created to do--trust Him and love Him!

God, Is It True by Steven Curtis Chapman

God, is it true that you're thinkin' of me at this moment?
God, is it true that you hear every prayer that I pray?
God, is it true every time my heart beats, you know it?
Well, if it's all true, then that must be you I hear saying, "Trust Me."

God, is it true out of all things you're doing on this planet,
Could it really be true that you've counted the hairs on my head?
God, is it true, every day of my life, you have planned it?
Well, if it's all true, then that must be you I hear saying, "Trust Me."

Trust Me, Trust Me
I'll never leave you
I'll never forsake you
Just trust me

God, is it true that your love for us is never ending?
Could it really be true that you'd die before letting us go?
God, is it true that not even death can separate us?
Well, if it's all true, then what can I do but put all my hope and all my trust in you?
Well, I know it's true and I know it's You I hear saying, "Trust Me."
I hear you saying, "Trust Me."
