In "other" Words - Trusting Him in All Things

"If we can trust God for our eternal salvation, how can we not trust Him to provide for the "little" things of life?" ~M.E.Howard

Can we really say that we totally resign our entire life into the hands of the Lord and practice freedom from fear? If that were true there would never again be worry, fear or stress in our lives. We would never again worry about the small things in our lives along with the other challenges. As much as I would love to say that I am at that point in my walk with Christ, I know in my heart that I'm not. And honestly, I don't know if I have ever met anyone who can say that they have completely arrived at that place in their spiritual journey.

In chapter 5 of the Book of Mark, the woman with the issue of blood had such passion, determination and FAITH that she overcame what seemed to be illogical. Logic said, "There are so many people around Jesus. You cannot possibly get through that crowd." Logic said, "You are ceremonially unclean and cannot go near Christ." But her faith and passion and determination said, "I can get to Jesus no matter what my situation or circumstance. He will make it right."

A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding. She had suffered a great deal from many doctors, and over the years she had spent everything she had to pay them, but she had gotten no better. In fact, she had gotten worse. She had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. For she thought to herself, "If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed." (Mark 5:25-28, NLT).

This woman had suffered enough, and she was determined to get her healing. Her faith led to a release of Christ's power. "Jesus realized at once that healing power had gone out from him, so he turned around in the crowd and asked, 'Who touched my robe?'" (Mark 5:30, NLT). Jesus was not angry with this woman for touching him. He knew she had touched him, but he stopped and asked who did it in order to teach something about faith. Although this woman was healed when she touched him, Jesus said her faith caused the cure. Genuine faith involves action.

I love the Lord with all my heart and I do trust Him with my life but there are times when worry rears its ugly head into my thought pattern or doubt enters my mind. Maybe it is a work issue, or ministry issue and sometimes family issues. When I find myself in those places of doubt or worry I realize I need to pour myself more into God's Word and spend more alone time with my Heavenly Father.

God selected twelve disciples. He is choosing you and I today. He is calling us to be world changers for the Kingdom of God through our faith in Jesus Christ. He has placed passion and purpose in each of us. When we have faith to trust God in ALL things,  nothing will be impossible.

Trusting Him today for what lies ahead tomorrow..........
