Who do you trust most?
I trust God most. Some people trust money over everything else, while other’s trust power most. It is very important to know that all good things come from the Lord above as the Bible tells us and that material things can be here today and gone tomorrow without warning. Trusting and loving the Lord and having faith in God is the best decision that a person can make. When you make this decision, you know that nothing on this earth matters above God and that HE is the source of our needs, especially love.
The bible shows us different acts of love and trust by giving and one of the first examples is from Genesis with Abraham and his son. Abraham prayed for his son and loved him so much but he loved God first and obeyed God when he was told to take the son to be sacrificed back to the lord. God saw Abraham’s obedience and love for him so he stopped Abraham before he killed his son and provided another sacrifice.
“And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of” Genesis 22: 2.
Can you imagine giving up something so valuable? Something that you have prayed for, for so long, just to be told to give back or to kill it? Abraham showed lots of love with his actions.
Imagine that you won the lottery for $300 million. You sign all documents that it belongs to you but then God tells you to give it all away to a specific place. What would you do? I would first pray (lol 😜😇) for wisdom, understanding, and assurance that it is Gods voice and then I would do what God told me because he knows where his money belongs and my obedience and faith will rewarded as I did not trust in the money, I put my trust in the Lord.
I encourage you to put your full trust in the lord and he will direct your path.
What are you trusting God for today?
