Some Challenges That Christians May Face in Trusting God
The call for Christians to trust God may sound easy, but it may be sometimes difficult to demonstrate.
Christians may be tempted to look somewhere else other than to God during afflictions.
However, no matter how difficult a situation may appear, believers must always remember that God is greater than our challenges.
Christians must be careful not to make irrational decisions during our trying moments.
Believers must avoid the following factors:
The temptation to focus on challenges
The temptation to seek for a quick-fix solution (temporal solution)
Temptation to live in pretense – (denial of a problem)
Temptation to solely rely on human knowledge (which is limited)
Importance of Trusting God
As Christians, we must understand the greatness of our God and demonstrate strong faith in him (especially during our difficult moments).
We may not have money, material, or other resources needed to confront our tough situations, but we have God who has all things at his disposal.
He owns the whole world at the palm of his hands. He is in control of all situations, and therefore will neither leave nor forsake us at any moment.
Psalm 121 declares: “I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep…the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
Some Facts that Christians Must Remember about Trusting in God
We serve a conquering God. Our God is able to conquer all battles of life and award us victory!
There will be no mountain so high or a valley so low that he will not take care.
God can, and he will handle the “lows” and “highs” for his children.
He will make all things work together for the advantage of people that serve him!
The purpose of God’s engagement in any situation is to glorify himself.
Since believers are his children, he will do the needful to honor himself in our lives.
That is, the Creator will fight and win battles for the sake of defending his interest in their lives.
God has a plan for all situations. He is ever active.
The fact that a problem may exist does not mean our God is passive.
He works with his own schedule and he will ultimately help his children have victory at the appointed time.
Christians must continue to trust God in every circumstance since the Creator will show up in due time to honor himself in our lives.
