What you have right now is...

 

Your right now may be difficult and tough, and you may ask yourself "How is this going to make me better? How is this what God has planned for me?" This is when trust comes into action.

By choosing to trust what God has promised us and what the Bible says, our attitude and mindset towards the present moment starts to shift. We begin to accept our present and trust God that it plays a purpose in His plan for us. Even if we don't see right away why this is happening, we know through our faith and love in God that this is happening for a divine reason. 

Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

 

God has a purpose for everything. Yes, our lives will consist of struggles, sadness, grief, anger, stress, frustration, and loss. We are designed to be emotional and to respond to those things in a human way. But Jesus, God's only son died on the cross to save us from our sins and to give us His love through the Holy Spirit which is within all of us. It is because of His love and the Holy Spirit inside of us we are equipped for every situation we are put in. 

John 14:17- "Even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you."

 

The Holy Spirit lives within us and is the truth! The Holy Spirit is our constant reminder and our internal guide. It is because of the Holy Spirit we are able to trust, to love, and to do God's will. The Holy Spirit is filling us up with what we need in order to fulfill God's purpose

John 16:13-15 - “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”

 

The Holy Spirit will only share with you what God tells it. God wants us to learn to trust Him through everything that happens to us. Through the good and the bad. That is why we are here on this Earth: to learn to love in an imperfect place, to learn that we need God in every way. God helps us through the Holy Spirit which is within us! He will give us everything we NEED!

Philippians 4:19 -  "And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

 

This is what we always need to remind ourselves, God is within us. He will never leave us. He has a reason for every season in our lives and a divine purpose for everything. We need to stop living by sight and starting living by faith. Through our trust in God we learn we don't need to understand everything, we don't need to know everything, we don't need to have the fanciest cars and the nicest clothes to be happy and to be loved. We have everything we need right now and it is inside of us. Once we realize this, our priorities start to change, our attitude improves, and our hearts open up. Everything will work out according to God's will. His will is perfect. 

Psalm 18:30 - "As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him."
