Oral Roberts, in his book ‘A Daily Guide to Miracles’, said that “trust is commitment”. If Trust is firm belief in someone or something, and Commitment is a pledge or an undertaking, then, I think, to a very reasonably large extent, it is true. You can never trust in someone without actually being committed to that person. Trust materializes through commitment.
Our ‘Word of the Week’ for this week is lay your trust in the Lord at all times. 1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.” What I see the Bible telling me and you is that, “it does not matter what our worries and cares are, what really matters is us casting all of them into the hands of God for He cares about us”. Have you someone who cares a lot about you? If you do, then you definitely will know how it feels like being cared for by someone. God is not just a someone who cares about you, but the Someone who lacks nothing and gives everything through faith.
Philippians 4:19 ends it all by telling us emphatically and unambiguously what an awesome provider/supplier our God is. It says, “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” This is Apostle Paul speaking to the Philippian believers.
Lay your worries and cares in the Lord today, for He who cares about us all will supply us with all we need in the glorious riches of Christ Jesus. I want to conclude with this quote, “If you want to see the rainbow, you must be prepared to deal with the heavy downpours.” Nothing good comes easy, and so in laying our worries in the Lord, we might have to wait, sometimes longer, for the heavy downpour to be over. But I want to tell you that waiting on God for a lifetime is worth it.
May the good Lord be with us all this week in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen!
