Monday's Message of Hope

Trusting God!
Monday, February 7, 2022 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

We all know the phrase on any United States money, coin or paper, states “In God We Trust.” Most of us would agree that our country has strayed a long way from trusting in God. While I could certainly write a message about that and how, as believers, we need to pray without ceasing for our nation, that’s not what I feel led to share about.

Today’s message is much more personal. Basically, it comes down to this—In God, do I trust? I know how easy the words can roll off our tongues, “Sure, I trust God.”  or “Of course, I trust the Lord.”

But do we? When push comes to shove, the rubber meets the road, and other similar clichés, do we really trust God? I think I do. I really do. But . . . do I really? And the answer? Yes . . . and . . . No . . . and . . . Maybe.

What do I mean? Yes, I trust God in places or areas where I have experienced his peace, his provision, his power. However, if I find myself in unfamiliar situations, the battle begins. Doubts, fears, unbelief all begin their assault on my mind. Will God come through? Are you sure you can trust him? He hasn’t answered that prayer—what makes you think he’ll answer this one? You’ve probably heard all of these words echoing in your mind at one time or another. Unfortunately, they can lead us away from “Yes” to “No” or “Maybe.”

Thankfully, we have the Word of God as an anchor for our souls. While dozens of verses use the word trust, the best examples come from the psalms of the shepherd/king David. In spite of the trials, the betrayals, and the afflictions, David repeatedly placed his trust in God, and he encouraged anyone who listened to do the same.

Yet with all of his obvious faults, David was a man after God’s own heart. I believe one of the reasons is because of David’s complete trust in his God. Let’s take up the mantle of trust and be men and women after God’s heart, saying with full confidence:

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalm 34:8, NKJV)

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Do you have areas in your life where you completely trust God?
  • Are there areas where you still struggle with trusting the Lord?
  • How will this help your walk with the Lord?

Have a hope-filled week, trusting God!!

Thank you, God, for all the moments in my life (all of them) when you have been there for me, leading me forward through new open doors. I will not doubt that in my recent trial, you have your forever arms around me and I can rest with you and cast me fears away!

Hi, Linaya. I am in full agreement with your prayer. I love you, my dear, dear friend. Have a blessed day! Penelope Kaye

Thank you for your transparency. God occasionally allows things to come up that show me where I have started to trust in myself or circumstances more than I trust in Him. Thankful for His loving kindness to help keep me on track.

Hi, Evelyn. Thank you for your kind words. It's so easy to fall into not leaning on Him, but He is so good to get us back on track. Blessings, Penelope Kaye
