ALWAYS ANOTHER REASON TO TRUST
Our lives are constantly shifting. We wake up every day and face a new list of challenges and doubts. We navigate our own path of uncertainty with as much faith as we can muster, and the next day we wake up and do it all over again.
Maybe today your challenge involves how to pay a bill, or concerns over your health, or the health of someone you love. Maybe your uncertainty includes doubts about your faith, or doubts about whether you'll get that job, or questions that remain unanswered about relationships, or finances or your future.
Usually, these concerns involve situations that we have little to now control over. So, ultimately, all we can really do is to take our needs to Jesus and lay them down at His feet.
These are reasons to trust Him and the reality is, once those issues are resolved, there will always be another one right behind that one to take its place.
In other words, we will always need to come to Jesus with something. We will always have a problem, a concern, a worry, a prayer, a need, etc., that we cannot carry. We will always have another reason to trust Jesus and to rest in His presence.
This is God's grace for us. He wants us to know that we can trust Him. He is constantly providing us with yet another opportunity to exercise our trust. He wants us to get used to trusting Him. He wants us to know that He can be trusted - with everything and anything that may come our way.
We can trust Him because He is good.
We can trust Him because He loves us.
We can trust Him because He has proven Himself to be trustworthy, over and over again.
The good news is: There will always be another reason to trust Him.
So, you might as well start now.
