Trust God To Help YOU Manage YOUR New Year!

There are a number of different reasons why some people are afraid to trust God for His help. But it seems that in the troubling days we are living in, a few more people each day are at least considering the possibility of receiving help from God. Perhaps this article can be of great assistance to those wondering if they really can trust God to help them.

Why are some people afraid to trust God? Some are afraid of the answer they might receive. Others are afraid that they are not worthy of receiving His help. Still others fear that God may not give them what they really need. But are these really valid reasons, or are they just suppositions or assumptions based on falsehoods?

Some are afraid to trust God because they have heard that God gives you sicknesses or problems just to test your faith. It’s pretty hard to put your trust in someone who just might bring disaster in your life, isn’t it? I don’t believe that God brings misery and tragedy into your life to test you. That is not the action of a loving God.


Others have a hard time trusting God because they just don’t feel like their life has measured up to the standard that they think warrants having God’s blessing on their life. In other words, they are afraid that they don’t deserve God’s help or His blessings, because they haven’t been as “good” as someone else said that they should be. Some sincere religious soul has duped them into thinking that they must earn God’s love.

Others are afraid that God’s answer might bring them help in a way that they would not like. In other words, if they ask and trust God for housing that they need, they are afraid that His answer might be a one room apartment and that they would then need to be thankful and just accept it. But that is just the opposite of what is promised in the Bible. The Bible says that God supplies all that we need.

God does not rain problems down on your life to test your faith. God does not bestow His love and blessings on those who have earned it and deserve it. (Who would qualify?) And, God does not answer our prayers with inferior results that do not supply our needs. Those assumptions are erroneous, and those who teach such are teaching error and are actually preventing people from receiving from a loving and kind God.

So, we are left with a decision. We can either choose to not trust God based on what people say, or we can choose to trust God based on what He says. There are countless scriptures where God encourages us to trust Him. The Bible is full of exhortation for us to call upon Him for help. And, He has made promise after promise that He will indeed help us.

What does it really mean to trust Him? Is it some kind of blind faith? Is it more than just saying that we are trusting in Him? What can we expect from Him when we do indeed trust Him?

To trust God is to have absolute confidence in Him and simply believe what He has promised us. It is not a casual request to someone who may or may not be interested in helping. It is not going through some religious motion or notion of saying a prayer and then hoping for the best.

Trusting God means that we have no doubts; we are convinced. We recognize that He is unlimited in His resources to supply. We recognize that He is the One Who said that we ought to ask for His help. We believe that what He has promised He is willing and able to perform on our behalf. That is how to trust God.

We have many examples in the scriptures of those who believed and trusted God and received genuine help from Him. Those examples cover aspects of life including healing, finances, peace and safety, to name a few If they trusted God and received the help that they needed, so can we.

We each choose what we are going to believe. We can choose to believe some sincere soul who claims to speak for God but is in fact not speaking truthfully according to the scriptures. Or, we can choose to accept what God says and take Him at His Word, putting our complete trust and confidence in Him. If we truly want the results that we are looking for, we would be wise to trust in God.
