“I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” John 16:33 TM
You don’t become unshakable and deeply at peace simply by knowing Jesus. These come when you learn to trust Him. On paper, Jesus seems pretty trustworthy. He created the Heavens and the Earth and everything we see touch and feel. He took off His “God clothes” and came into our world to rescue us. He payed the ultimate sacrifice to save us from hell. He rose from the grave, defeated death, ascended to heaven, where He reigns with full authority at the right hand of the Father. He has done everything He has ever said He would. He loves you with a love that is incomparable.
Jesus has the credentials to be trusted. Why do we struggle so much to trust Him?
What is keeping you from trusting Jesus? What areas of your life do you find hard to trust Him with? Why do you think that is?
Spend some time praying, and ask the Lord to help you to trust Him. Ask Him to reveal the things you’re holding on to that keep you from relying on Him completely.
