It’s A Matter of Trust

“Trust me in your times of trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.” Psalm 50:15 (NLT)
Are you willing to trust in the One who is unseen but is more reliable, more dependable than any technology this world could create?
When I ask people what keeps them from trusting in God, they say, “Well I haven’t seen what’s on the other end so I’m not going to trust it.” And yet they trust in things they can’t see all the time.
We can’t see television or radio waves, but we watch TV and listen to the radio every day. We can’t see cell phone waves, but we use them all the time without thinking.
It’s selective trust. We trust what we want to trust.
What about you? Are you willing to trust in the One who is unseen but is more reliable, more dependable than any technology this world could create? Are you willing to commit your life to him?
If you are, I encourage you to pray this prayer:
Dear God, forgive me for my pride and thinking that I don’t need you in my life. I’m sorry. I admit that I need rescuing. I need saving. There is no way I can pay for my sins on my own.
And so I’m asking you Jesus, as much as I understand it, to rescue me and set me free. I am calling on you because you’ve said that anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
I want to commit my life to you, and I want to learn to trust you and know you better. Give me the better life and set me free. In your name I pray, Amen.
