Daily Digest: Trust

What is trust? Though there is a formal definition, I would say trust is believing in something that can sometimes be unknown. Why do I say unknown? Let’s look at trusting in God for example. 

The word of God says : 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. – Proverbs 3:5‭-‬6 NKJV
Sometimes however, we have to trust blindly. This I know all too well. Presently I am faced with a situation where all I can do is trust God to bring a solution. However, the situation has no view. You know the little things we would love to see just to make an assessment? THERE IS NONE! I am literally learning to trust the unknown. Knowing that God will not stare me in the wrong direction. This trust test is sometimes difficult because I would like a little info. God,  can I have a little peak? In such a time he would not even say no. There is total silence as he teaches my heart to depend on him. My mom always said “trust him where you can’t trace him” and oh boy I can’t trace him.

If this is you, don’t give up. For through it all he still deserves worship and praise. Remember he is an all sovereign God and his plans are NEVER to hurt us. So trust him, even when you can’t trace him. He will make a way for you. 

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. –Jeremiah 29:11 KJV



Emancipated before Emancipated

be free

Be Free! Be free from everything that holds you back, mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, relationship wise, family wise. Be Free!! You may ask how. How do I get out when I see no way out? What is freedom but a mere word in my life? A word I long to relish in. I cry day and night. My eyes are swollen and my heart is nursing a constant wrenching pain. How can you tell me Be Free?

My head turns left and right but yet I see no one to talk to. Don’t get me wrong I have friends and yes I can go to them but they still won’t understand what I feel. Even when I’m finish talking about it and we go our separate ways, I will feel the same. So what’s the sense? I rather be alone. I wish I can go away from everything and everyone. Hide myself in a room or migrate and start afresh. No one understands. No one cares. No one loves me. I am on the verge of hating life.

Sounds familiar? I know. I’ve been there. My mind begins the journey to reach that point many times but I’m reminded that God told me in Matthew 11:28 – “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He also told me in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. My soul is encouraged in that, once I use faith as small as a mustard seed (Matthew 17:20 – Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”) I can and will be emancipated from all my hurts and pains. Sometimes I get tired but God reminds me that he  is my present help in the time of struggles. Sometimes I have to force myself to believe it and right there and then he extends his hands of mercy and love to me, picks me up and turns my mess into a message, my test into a testimony and my trials into triumph. Acceptance is all that’s required. Why? God told me that it is already done in the spirit realm and is waiting on my faith to manifest in the physical. If that’s the case, then I am emancipated before I am emancipated. Something to think about.

It’s never easy in the early stages but when you let go and let God, things always works out for the better. I challenge you to challenge him. Yes! I said it. Challenge God to work on your behalf and wait patiently on him. He will work it out for you. Have faith and be liberated. Be emancipated.
