Kingdom Living is Trusting God
Kingdom Living is trusting God
• Are you trusting in man or God?
• Do you depend on yourself for your strength?
• Are you cursed or blessed?
5 This is what the LORD says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 He will be like a bush in the wastelands; he will not see prosperity when it comes. He will dwell in the parched places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
8 He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:5-8
What is the opposite of trusting in God? The opposite of trusting in God is trusting in man, yourself, and others. Where are you placing your soul? King David was probably hiding in caves when he wrote Psalm 25: 1-3 below:
To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul; in you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse. Psalm 25: 1-3
Kingdom Living is trusting the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. Anything less than trusting God with all your heart is living beneath your God intended purpose and potential. Jesus has removed shame by the shedding of HIS blood for all mankind to be redeemed.
• Do you trust HIM now with your current circumstance and problem?
• Can you humble yourself enough to come under HIS authority to trust HIM with your life?
• Do you trust HIM enough to cast your worries and cares on HIM?
HE loves and cares for you.
• Trusting God is a choice.
• Getting up in the morning is a choice.
• Going to work is a choice.
You either choose to trust God or you choose to trust yourself (man).
