Trust in God, Lean on Him
This post is for anyone out there who doesn’t know where you’re going. Or to anyone who don’t know what to do next. Or someone who doesn’t see how things will end up.
I have good news for you. If you fear God, you will never be alone. If you believe in God, your path will be made known. If you stick to Jesus, you will be blessed.
Who out there fears God,
actually listens to the voice of his servant?
For anyone out there who doesn’t know where you’re going,
anyone groping in the dark,
Here’s what: Trust in God.
Lean on your God!
(Isaiah 50:10, MSG)
Here’s what to do: trust in God, not on your own understanding. That means: put your faith in practice and live it out! Trust in God no matter what your circumstances are. God has always kept all his promises and he will in the future, too. He will come through in your life, too.
We are called to bring ourselves to God. The good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, and everything in between. We are called to cry out to God when we feel like it. We are called to laugh and dance before God when life goes well. We are called to live our whole lives with God. Authenticity and honesty is what God wants. He wants us to lean on him with all our sorrows and all our joys. He wants to heal us and makes us whole. He wants to guide us and show us the way home.
The tougher life gets, the more you need to read the Bible. Devour the Word of God because it gives God a chance to speak to you through his living word. The harder it is to know what to do next, the more time you need to spend with God. Persistently keep on praying and take time to listen, too. Prayer works and God is at work, also (or especially?) when it does not seem like it. It’s always darkest right before the dawn. Keep on keeping on. God is with you. Trust in him and lean on him. All will be well!
When we are lost and don’t know where to turn to,
When we are confused and don’t know what to do,
When we are overwhelmed and don’t know how to get by,
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: How have you learned to trust in God and lean on him?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you put your faith in God and wait on him!

THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE ALONE
Should mankind use the Bible and the Bible alone for teaching faith and practice? If God’s truth is the template for you, then the Bible should be your source for truth.
THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES ARE NOT RELIABLE SOURCES FOR GOD’S TRUTH.
1. Quote from Pope Francis May 22, 2013: “The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not evil. All of us. “But Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.’ Yes he can…”The Lord has redeemed all of us,all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us not just Catholics Everyone! Father, the atheist? Even the atheists. Everyone! ….We must meet one another doing good. ‘ But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist! But do good:we will meet one another there.”
2. Quote from Billy Graham October 20, 1997: “I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they’re conscious of it or not, they’re members of the Body of Christ……He’s calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world,or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ,because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they’re going to be with us in heaven.”
3. Quote from Doctrine of Covenants -section 130:22 (Mormon supposed divine revelations): The “Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were is not so, the Holy Ghost could not dwell in us.
GOD’S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE.
