Whom Do You Trust?

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God (Psalm 20:7, ESV).

There are two circumstances in life when you know who your true families and friends are:

  1. When you are going through trials and tribulations
  2. When God starts blessing you

When you are going through trials and tribulations, you will know who will stay true to you, as you ride out your storm. These people will be with you in the storm, and they will be with you after the storm.

When God starts blessing you, some people will be happy for you; however, others who have bitter, hateful, and jealous spirits will certainly not be happy for you. Jeremiah 17:9 warns that the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? These people do not care what you were going through while you were facing your trials and tribulations. Instead, they are looking at how God has begun to bless you, after you have passed your test and rode through the storm with Jesus alone.

That is why you should put your trust in God, because he never fails. In doing so, it will save you a lot of disappointments and heart breaks. You do not know what is ahead of you in life. Therefore, trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Dealing with Disappointment

2012-07-23_Dealing_With_Disappointment

The cartoon above depicts a conversation with a movie patron who wants to buy a ticket to see the movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.” However, when the patron got to the ticket booth, the tickets were sold out! This patron must have been disappointed, as he replied, “But I have to see it now!!!” Everyone should have heard what had happened during the movie, “The Dark Knight Rises,” in Aurora, Colorado on Friday, July 20, 2012. The movie turned into a reality of horror when a gunman invaded the theater, and started shooting the patrons. So, although this patron in the cartoon was disappointed by not being able to get a ticket to see this movie, he must have been so happy that he was disappointed after learning about the horror that took place at the movie theater that same day.

Have you been denied something, or been disappointed by someone? Every disappointment in your life is an appointment with God. People do not determine your destiny, God does. Why some people are a disappointment in your life is because God does not want them to be a part of your destiny.

So if you have been denied something, or been disappointed by someone, rejoice in your disappointment, because that’s not the way God wants you to go. When God closes one door, he opens up another. But sometimes you look too long on the closed-door, that you do not see the one that God is opening up for you.

God’s delay is not God’s denial. That’s where your faith and trust in God plays a vital part in your life. So just trust Him, and be patient to see what next He has in store for you. It might not have been the route that you were taking, or the path that you were pursuing.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
