Trusting God in these hard days


Connie Keyohara

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus

Philippians 4:6&7

Life can seem like it’s going along smoothly then all of sudden, out of left field, difficult and unsuspecting things begin to emerge.

Your job that was going wonderful is now uncertain. Your friends and family who were enjoying an abundant life, are now facing sickness and some even worse. 

Your goals for this year have already diminished. And your finances, your health and even your marriage have a grim outlook. 

It seems that life threw you  a curveball. The things you felt secure in, are all of a sudden, uncertain.

How do you trust God in these circumstances? How do you trust Him when you do not understand what is happening? 

When you cannot see an end to it all, when it all feels so hopeless? 

Trusting God isn’t a thing you try “harder” to do. Trusting him happens when you hang out with Him long enough to see for yourself how faithful and trustworthy he really is. 

The more time you spend with God, the more you will trust him to lead you in the right direction! 

Trusting God strengthens our faith to do things we never imagined we could. Focusing on Christ instead of whatever issues seem to be going on around us at the moment, opens the door to supernatural, amazing things. 

During the storm at sea, when Jesus told Peter to walk on water and come to Him, Peter succeeded as long as he looked only at Jesus. Peter’s FAITH in Christ, was the deciding factor. 

(Without faith, he’d-a sunk.)

 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths”

Proverbs 3:5, 6

In our limited understanding, trust isn’t going to be easy. Without putting effort into understanding the Word, we have no chance! 

Letting Him lead us through life gives us something the world can’t comprehend….Peace

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” 

Philippians 4:7

Knowing He’ll always be by our side, should give us confidence and security. 

Trust Him, know him well and seek his face. 

Many blessings,
