The last few days, God has been all over me in the area of trust; taking me deeper and peeling back layers of fear, and helping me to see and hear His truth over my life in many different ways. I’ve used a lot of it already in my writing this morning for nanowrimo; but I also created a quick trust manifesto to help bring much of those thoughts to me in a one page format. I hope you find it helpful in your own life as you press on and learn to trust God in deeper ways. Blessings, Robin
A Trust Manifesto:
I will trust in the Lord at all times and lean not on my own understanding. In all of my ways I will choose to acknowledge Him, and He will make my path straight.
I will remember how God has moved throughout the Bible and I will choose to believe that He can do it again in my life and circumstances because he is a good Father and He is the same yesterday today and forevermore..
I will trust God with my resources because it is from Him everything has been given. I cannot out-give God. He is strengthening my trust in Him through the trials of life, producing perseverance and faith.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He guides me along quiet waters and restores my soul.
There is no lack in the Kingdom of God, so I will re-frame my mind to have a kingdom perspective instead of an earthly one.
God owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He has more than enough to meet my every need. He is a loving and supernatural God who wants to do supernatural miracles of goodness in my life so that I will be a living testimony of HIs goodness and favor.
I will choose to trust Him even when I don’t understand. God’s ways are not our ways. I will rest in Him and trust Him to give me the wisdom that I need as I seek and spend time with Him.
I will not let the fear in my flesh win the battle. God has not given me a spirit of fear but of courage and sound mind. I will focus my thoughts on His ways and not on what I cannot see. Some of God’s greatest works are prepared when I cannot see what He is up to. I will revel in His mysterious ways, building the anticipation of joy for what is to be revealed. I will sing like Mary, a song of joy and expectation of His wonderful ways, magnifying His greatness.
I will cling to the acts of HIs love and faithfulness that He has shown in my life. I will hold to prophetic words and scriptural promises and prayers that others have prayed on my behalf.
