Today we are discussing chapter 7 of my book, Giving God Your Whole Heart. Trusting God can be a blatant issue for some. Yet it can be more of a subtle issue for others, and we might not realize that we have a problem in this area. I think there are two key points that can help us to trust God more. Often times our lack of trust comes from the pain we have dealt with in life. So we have to remember that the enemy is the one who brought suffering into this world, not God. And another big key to trusting God is that we have to fully accept and embrace His love. God is love and He loves us beyond measure. When we realize just how much our Father loves us, trusting Him comes easier. If we keep our focus on Jesus, this helps us grow our trust in the Lord. God loved us THAT much to send His Son to die for us. Even after man fell and sinned in the Garden of Eden, God made a way to save us. There is no greater love than that. So how can we not trust Him when we see how much He loves us?

Don’t forget to listen to today’s song!! This song quickly became a favorite for me. I need tissues when I listen to this song. My favorite line: “You’re the one who runs in my direction when the whole world walks away.” I hope you love this song as much as I do! The God Who Stays by Matthew West
