To prevent the frustration of falling behind, which most of us tend to do when following a Bible reading plan, each month of this plan gives you only twenty-five readings. Today we start a few “free days” . We encourage you to catch up on any readings you may have missed this month.
If you have finished the month’s readings, you can use these final days of the month to study the passages that challenged or intrigued you.
What does TRUST in God mean?
This truly comes after a walk with God. Allow me to form a brief sketch about TRUST.
- First we stand on FAITH
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
FAITH comes by degrees.
FAITH starts out by a humble beginning.
FAITH becomes believing.
- BELIEVING in itself has DEGREES
First of all, to believe is to: Lend credits to, or an opinion of
But then believing graduates to being PERSUADED.
- Being persuaded means we HAVE A CONVICTION
To have a CONVICTION; To be put on trial for what up say you BELIEVE….and found GUILTY
BUT, Beyond Believing, FAITH then Matures into;
TRUST is that part of your walk with God that says;
Though I don’t understand,
Though I don’t see the end of the road,
Though it doesn’t look like it’s going to turn out like it started out, I still have FAITH that it is going to turn out, AND I’m still going to believe You anyway!
TRUST is a confidence that’s BORN out of many years of somebody that’s a TRUSTWORTHY and FAITHFUL friend.
