Scripture Verse: Psalm 37:4

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

As Christians, one of the biggest struggles we face is putting our complete trust in God. We find this challenging because as human beings, we continually let one other down. When people in our lives hurt, disappoint or betray us, it becomes more difficult to trust in their love. As a result, we start believing that God will let us down also.

However, we must remember one important thing: God is not a human being with fallacies. He is a spiritual and omniscient entity who will never fail or forsake his children. He is always there to love, listen, and comfort us. In all circumstances and stages of life, wherever we may be, whether good or bad, God is there for us. When we place our wholehearted faith into his hands, God will always encourage and provide us with everything that we could possibly need or desire.

Never be afraid to call on God or to trust in his love for you. If you place your trust in Christ, you will begin to live life more fully and heighten your spiritual growth in the Lord.

He has a unique plan and purpose for each one of us. Do not be afraid to trust his guidance. For only God knows what is best for us. God loves all those who believe in him. In addition, he will lead us down the right path if we are willing to trust his guidance. In all of life's struggles and challenging situations, there is nothing that God cannot handle.

For humans living in the modern technological world, we tend to prefer quick solutions to problems, immediate results and instant gratification. As a result, we find it particularly challenging to completely trusting God with our daily cares and concerns. We may be anxious or discouraged when God doesn't provide us with exactly what we asked for and when we need it.

God's spiritual timing is much different than ours. At times, it may seem like he is unfaithful or doesn't care about our needs. But in fact, the opposite is true. He wants to ensure that we are ready for the necessary life changes and adjustments which need to be made. God never gives us more that we can handle. He wants us to live our lives in accordance with his ways.

Traveling down God's spiritual path can be scary and even risky at times, but the rewards of life's journey through faith are even greater.

Together through daily prayer, meditation, and sharing of God's faith with others, we can grow more fully in our walk with Christ.

So take that leap of faith by trusting in God's protection and care in your life, each and every day. Once you do, your life will never be the same. In fact, you might be amazed at what God has planned for you.


Dear Lord, teach us to entrust all of our cares and concerns to you. Help us to rely on your strength and guidance during the most difficult times of our spiritual journey. In your name we pray, Amen.


When we trust God to walk with us through the valleys of life, he will carry us to greater heights on his magnificent mountain.


Trusting God as we cross life's paths.
