This week, I have been back and forth from Detroit to Toledo attending the 77th board meeting of the National Convention of Gospel Choirs & Choruses, Inc. While in the car, I began to think about all that needed to be done and the funds that are we need for the department (Youth & Young Adult Dept.) I serve to be a success this year. I became a bit discouraged thinking about what we could do to bring in the revenue. However, as I was driving I was listing to our department’s CD. And the words from one of our songs brought my thought back into God’s Obedient.
The song said… “Through all circumstances YES I will trust, YES I will trust him all of the way! Jesus can fix it; YES I will trust HIM… ALL of the way!”
I heard the voice of God say there are so many people who need to do just that… TRUST GOD!
So this Friday, I have one question for you, when are you going to TRUST God about your situation(s)?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto thy own understanding in all thy ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.
The book of Proverbs serves as directions for successful Christian living. So many us understand that God can do anything but fail in our lives. However, when life gets turned upside down we tend to forget that God is Able! I will tell you today… When you open up your ability to Trust in God… You open up your possibilities.
The bible tells us to trust in God with ALL our hearts and to lean not to our own understanding. Many times we look at things with our own eyes and not God’s eyes…My Bishop says that our problem is that as Christians we think too much. If things are not going the way that we “think” they should we give up all hope in God’s plan for our lives.
God has asked us to do three things, TRUST in him, THINK like him, and THANK him… and he will do what? Direct your path. I encourage you all today to reevaluate your current situation. If things are not going as planned, or if you have gotten off track with God’s mission for your life, maybe it’s because you don’t TRUST HIM! Or maybe it’s because you have your mind set on WORLDLY things. The word tells us to seek FIRST the kingdom of God… But many of us are seeking the world first! You can’t think like the world and live for Christ… Or maybe those are not your issues. Maybe your problem is that you don’t Thank Him enough. Many people live their lives and never acknowledge God for his marvelous works.
I encourage you today to TRUST, THINK, and THANK! Many of you are moments away from where God wants you to be. Many of you are a TRUST away from this being your season of Harvest. Many of you are one THINK away from getting your breakthrough! Someone is one THANK away from the miracle that you have been asking God for.
Do yourself a favor and TRUST, THINK, and THANK God on today like you have NEVER done before. Someone is waiting on that promotion; well… he is waiting on you to Thank him for your job you already have. There will be someone who will read this that feel like giving up… But all you need to get to your breakthrough is to THINK like CHRIST! Some of you need to have a two fish and five loaves mentality (you will get that later). There is a person who has lost their job, and do not know what to do…God wants you to TRUST Him! I heard God say once you trust him he will bless you with a job.
Trust, Think, and Thank on today!
God I thank you and honor you for what you are doing in our lives. Thank you for waking us up this morning and putting us in our right minds. Giving us the strength to make it to the end of the day. Lord bless us and keep us in your care. Teach us how to trust you, and be grateful. We love you Lord and it is in your Son Jesus’ name that we pray. Amen and thank God!
Family I love you and there is nothing you can do about it. Be Blessed!
Trusting, Thinking, and Thanking,
