"He is God of the Impossible"
By: Joyce Picker
Have you ever been in a situation where you had to trust someone else with something very important or valuable to you? How did you react? Was it easy or hard to trust? Trust is an action verb - it requires a commitment of heart. The definition of trust is: firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something. "Relations have to be built on trust." from the Oxford Dictionary.
It may be hard to trust someone you have never met or even someone you do know but they have proved unreliable. But that's humans. What about trusting God? We have not met Him yet, but we trust right?
Sometimes, everyday challenges can test our trust in God. Fear, anxiety and stress can rob us of our faith. The future may seem uncertain, and worry keeps us from praying and trusting, Remember God is God of the past, present and future. He knows our tomorrows and is already in all of them. The Bible assures us that God loves us, has a plan for us and we can trust His way is the best way for us.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
I love the way this verse starts: it assumes as Believers that we know! Do we know? We should know. We can trust that everything works together for good for us who love Him and are called according to His purpose. that's great news and it is re-assuring especially when we are going through something difficult.
I was watching a little girl at swim camp. She was terrified of the water, but her coach reassured her that she was there and would not let anything happen to her. After a while, she calmed down, relaxed and begin to be less and less afraid. Once she knew she could trust her, she was able to learn how to swim and have fun. It's a beautiful picture of us when we first meet our Lord. Once we know we can trust Him, it gets easier and easier, and we should be having fun.
Psalm 18: 1-3 I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies.
If God is truly our Rock, why do we find it necessary to stress or worry about things? If we believe, we should let go of negativity. These thoughts are not life, and they don't do anything for us. It boils down to trust. If we truly trust, we can truly let go.
Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
We must truly cast our anxiety on Him because He died on the cross for us. He took our anxiety, fear and negativity, and by His stripes we are healed. Not, we may be healed but we are healed. We have to keep our eyes on Him and not our circumstances.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will level your path. Proverbs 3:5-6
We love to hike and explore new territory. It is exhilarating to be outside and to see God's creation. When we explore possible paths, I like to make sure they are level and that they are clearly marked. Another detail is how difficult the terrain might be. All these things can make a difference between a safe, enjoyable hike and a not so enjoyable one. If you study this picture here, this is what I believe Proverbs 3:5-6 is talking about. God not only levels our path but it is obvious there is only one way. All we need to do is trust.
If you have been praying for something and have not seen it yet, God is still trustworthy. If He is silent, just patiently wait upon Him. His timing is perfect. When we pray, we believe and we thank Him in advance for His promises which are always yes and amen. The Bible is full of people who overcame many challenges. It is an inspiration for us in times of trouble.
Father, I thank you for your living word that it is well and alive in us. I thank you for trusting faithfulness. Thank you that even when we can't see we still believe. We have no doubt. Father forgive our doubt and fill us full with trust.
