Trust and belief

DSCF4784 scripture verse, and signed

Father has been showing me things, that I never really thought about to this extent. For a long time, I said that I was ready for everything, He would want me to do. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been praying and reading this book series named “Revelation Special Ops” by Precarious Yates. It’s a fictional book, and isn’t 100% accurate about the end times (but who is). It gave me much to think on, such as; am I really ready for this, am I where I need to be before He sends me out to do His work?

Yes my faith is stronger than it has been for a while. But I still put Him on the side lines, and I’ve really truthfully done that for too long. I was getting back on track for a time but I once again slid back into old patterns. Sometimes the hardest things to do are the best things. Something else this book gave me to think on, is the characters love for the Word, to praise Him, and they prayed before they did anything. They put Him in the center of their daily lives! Something I have failed in and failed miserably in.

He has been reminding me that I need to put Him first and trust Him. I know that when things go bad, I will only have Him to look to. Yes I will have my parents, but I can’t rely on my parents relationship with Him. I need to learn now to put Him first, then everything else will follow.

I know this will not be easy, but Trust usually isn’t. But it is better to put my trust in Him, my Abba Father and His Son, my Savior, than to put it in men.

Psa 118:8  It is better to take refuge in יהוה Than to trust in man.
Psa 118:9  It is better to take refuge in יהוה Than to trust in princes.

Because when things get hard He will be with me no matter what. Even when people fall away left and right.

Psa 37:5  Commit your way to יהוה, And trust in Him, and He does it.

There are times when He tells us things and they seem impossible but If we trust in Him, He does it for us. The miracles that He’s done all these years, that are written about and that no one knows about, except those who it happened to. Why can’t He do it now, He can and He will, if we trust Him. We only need as much faith as the size of a mustard seed and we could move mountains!

<- This is a mustard seed. Imagine having faith that small and we could say (with His backup of course) to this mountain be moved to another place and it would be done!

Mat 17:20  And Yahushua said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Mat 21:21  Yahushua answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.

Mar 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

The basis of faith is trust, because without trust we cannot have faith. It is as simple as that. The hardest part is believing/having faith, but again it comes back to trust. You cannot believe/have faith a person if you do not trust them first, right? So therefore you cannot believe until you trust.

If a friend told you to close your eyes and fall backward trusting him/her to catch you. Would you do it? Would you believe that the friend would not let you fall on your behind? If so then you trusted them enough to know that they would stay true to their word. So acting on the belief that your friend will not let you fall, you are also trusting them.

Does that make any sense to you? 

So when we trust our Abba, that means that we also believe Him.

I’m still learning, and I have a long road ahead of me, but I am looking forward to it. I Believe that He will make a way for me to do His will no matter how impossible it seems. I trust that He will be with me and shall never leave me nor forsake me.

Have a good week. And ponder on this as you go through the daily hum drum of life, during school, and at work: Do you trust our Abba Father, and His Son enough to close your eyes and trust that they will catch you, just like you would your friends?

Miracles

Today was another walk to the library. It was good. My mom and I went shopping this afternoon I got a pair of black leggings, because one of my skirts barely cover my knee so I figured I need some kind of leggings. Mom also found a shirt that she likes. She has been looking for awhile, so I’m very glad she has found one, now for the rest of her wardrobe. LOL. We haven’t gotten new clothes since 2011 spring. So we are all getting practically new wardrobes.

totaling (for the majority)

  • 2-4 shirts
  • 2-3 bottoms (pants/skirts)
  • 3-4 pairs socks
  • 1 pair Pj’s
  • 2 pairs shoes
  • 6 undies
  • 1-2 pairs of long johns/tights
  • 2 undershirts

That is the basics. Imagine having only that for your wardrobe. And it is exactly the same for about 7-8 months.

It reminds me of all the miracles/blessings that I have forgotten. Our clothes endured backpacking for over 7 months, and I can say 1/2 of my clothes were from 2010 and before! But they didn’t fall apart until after we finished our trip. Ever wonder how the Israelites clothes lasted through 40 years in the wilderness (Deu 29:5  “And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. Your garments have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet.)? It wasn’t because they were top quality (they were home made) but because He kept them until He knew they could get new ones. That is exactly what He did for us.

Another one is, last winter my family rented a cottage in Nova Scotia. There was a neighbour who was the “caretaker” of the house when there was no one staying, he sometimes asked my Dad and older brother to help him. And more often than once he would bring over things such as food from his freezer as a thank you. But this is one I remember the most. It was grocery shopping and library day as we lived 1/2 hour –45 min out of the main town we usually only went once a week. We went as usual but we knew we didn’t have enough money for all the groceries we needed, we would either go again later another day when the money came in, or we would have to make the food stretch as far as we could. We arrived home with all we could afford. Not 5 minutes after that the neighbour shows up with a trunk full of food even meat which in Canada is getting more and more expensive, we couldn’t afford meat with out straining finances to the Max. I think I cried when I saw that trunk of groceries. Many people who read this blog cannot understand what it feels like to know that by the end of the week you could be on the verge of not starvation but really severe hunger pains. I am almost crying right now remembering. How many times has that happened to my family but it never touched us.

Who ever is reading this remember one thing Yahuweh Never forsakes His people. Even when it seems to be at a dead end and hope is no where in sight, He brings something and we can keep going.

So I think I will end this post here. Think about these stories. You don’t hear about this kind of stuff much any more. Every miracle no matter how small is a miracle. People need to hear of miracles. So please keep telling of the miracles He does in your lives and in the lives of others.
