Today’s Inspiration: “Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.” Psalms 22:9-10 NIV. Trust is a deep healing journey walking with Christ. We see many broken souls who were hurt, rejected or abused in their lives be it physical, emotional or verbal had found it difficult to trust. In fact every emotional hurts creates a mask or another wall in our souls that establishes a false security out of insecurity. Without trust, we can lose the ability to love and feel loved in our lives. And that’s where the power of the Cross enters with the outstretched arm of Christ, to bring us back to God again. Isaiah 41:10.
The first step to restore trust is to surrender your heart to God. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust is like an enlistment to the army, where one’s life is no longer his or her own but for the cause of the Nation. Jesus would not have gone to the Cross without complete trust in the Father’s will and purpose for the salvation of humanity from sins. Why do we struggle to trust is because we do not have a surrendered heart to God. 1 Peter 5:7. Only a surrendered heart is able to feel, experience and encounter the tangible love of God. Trust is not about losing control but giving God control for all things in your life through prayers, petitions and thanksgiving in our hearts. Philippians 4:6. Trusting God builds great relationships. Many says trust is earned but biblically trust is given.
Prayer: O Lord my God, if my heart has been closed and you are knocking on it, I shall open the door for you to walk into my life. Release me from all my fears, anxieties and insecurities. Let my heart surrender all to you and be obedient to your Word, for you are the wind beneath my wings as I put all my trust in you, in Jesus Name, Amen.
