Trusting God is one of the best things a child of God can ever learn to do. The moment you learn you trust God, life will become beautiful because you will begin to experience a kind of peace you never knew existed. Initially, it can be quite hard for us to trust God due to the fact that His ways are highest than our ways, and until we get to know Him well, His instruction and commands might seem strange. Nevertheless, as a child of God, it is important that you learn to trust God blindly. Even if you cannot see around the bend, you should trust Him enough to know that He will always lead you aright. No matter how unconventional God’s ways are, one thing is sure: He has your best interest at heart. Jeremiah 29:11 says.
 
‘’For I know thoughts that I think toward you, said the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’’
 
Trusting God involves talking the backseat and letting God handled the major decision and destination in your life. It involves letting your will be so lost in His will until you start to see things His perspective and feel things through His heart. It takes a lot of trust in another individual to able to let go of your own will and let that person’s will prevail in your life. You can only trust someone that you love; so if you don’t love God genuinely, you cannot trust Him.
 
There was a day I was driving down from Ilorin to Lagos and my fuel tank was on, almost empty. Unknown to me, a fuel scarcity was on, and so all the filling station I saw along the way had no fuel. I cried to God and He asked me to take my eyes off the fuel gauge and continue driving to Lagos. Although my fuel tank was already on reserve at the time he told me to do this, I said to Him ‘’Yes lord’’ and I kept on driving. To the glory of God, I kept on driving till I got to my house in Lagos. After I parked the car, I looked at the fuel gauge and it read empty if I did not trust God completely, I would have parked my car in a safe place along the way and gone through the stress of finding an alternative means of getting home, instead of taking the risk of getting stranded along the way.
 
The devil specializes in sowing seeds of doubt in our hearts so that our faith in God will diminish, because he knows that the moment you start doubting God, you will not be able to receive anything from Him (James 1:6-7). For this reason, it is very important to remind yourself of the good things God has done for you and others in the past. Encourage yourself with these testimonies in order to rekindle your faith. Learn to trust God, because it shows your love for Him!

Key Point: If you don’t learn to trust God, then don’t expect anything from Him.

Hymnal: sing Hymn 11 (Open Heavens, 15th October 208)

 
1. O God, our help in ages past,
  Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
  And our eternal home.
2. Under the shadow of Thy throne
  Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
  And our defence is sure.
3. Before the hills in order stood,
  Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
  To endless years the same.
4.A thousand ages in Thy sight
  Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
  Before the rising sun.
5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
  Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
  Dies at the opening day.
6. O God, our help in ages past,
  Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while life shall last,
  And our eternal home.
