It's the same with trusting God. It's far easier to trust Him if you know Him! So how do you do that? How do you get to know the Creator of the universe, our Heavenly Father, His Son, Prince of Peace, Messiah, Emmanuel, the Holy Spirit, the Comforter?
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Open your Bible and read it! It is the Word of God! In it you will find His personality, His love, His abundant grace. You will find that He always keeps His promises. That His love is unconditional, always there, and abundant. You will find that He is merciful and protective of His own. He is ever present, all knowing, all powerful, unchanging. He wants to be in relationship with you.
45 Not one of all the LORD’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
3 But you, LORD, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
Pray. Daily....hourly...all the time. Give thanks. Give adoration. Tell Him your needs. Tell Him your feelings, your thoughts, your hurts, your happiness, your disappointments. Tell Him everything...even your anger. Tell Him. Worship Him, praise Him. Talk to him....and then watch for Him to answer.
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. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
Find a church home where you can worship and fellowship with other Christians. One that has values that are Biblically based...where the Gospel is spoken, where the commandments to love God, love others, and spread the gospel is lived out through the members. Go to worship, go to Bible study groups, take part in activities. Be a part of the Christian community.
20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Get to know Him...and get to trusting Him!
