Trusting God for the Small Things

It’s interesting.

We trust God for the big things, like salvation, forgiveness of sins and heaven.

But we sometimes don’t trust Him for the little things, like our bills, hurts, broken relationships and desires. It’s difficult for us to believe He’s just as concerned about our small, passing needs.

God is our Savior, but He’s also our Lord, the Lord of everything in our lives.                                                He is not just the Lord of our future, the Lord of heaven.                                                                                      He is the Lord of our now, the Lord of our life on earth.

Yes, we can trust God for the big things… and the small ones too.

FEELING TRAPPED

 

Jenny is a single parent, with two young children.

After paying the rent, she has little left for the basics. She feels trapped.

Perhaps you can identify with Jenny.

Inflation- you can’t beat it. It affects groceries, clothing, and gasoline, everything… except FORGIVENESS.

The price of forgiveness was paid – once and for all – long ago on a cross. The Bible says, Christ “offered one sacrifice, once and for all, when He offered Himself!”

Forgiveness is paid for. And the care of God shown in Jesus helps you deal with life, no matter what your situation. God wants to walk with you and help you.

PASSING TIME

 

A new day reminds us of the passing of time.

We look back on what has happened and forward to what might happen.

Perhaps we celebrate.  Perhaps we make resolutions.

But do we look back with regret and forward with fear?

Or do we look back with satisfaction and forward with hope?

Time is in God’s hands.

That’s comforting, because they’re good hands!

God is personally concerned about each one of us.

He loves us so much that he allowed his Son, Jesus, to die for us.

Life has its ups and downs.   But God is with us through it all.

That means you can face another day with confidence.

ABANDONED

Have you ever felt let down, or even betrayed, by your friends? It’s a devastating feeling. You’re so totally alone.

Perhaps you even feel God’s turned his back on you…that He has forgotten you.

Even Jesus felt like that…The day he hung there dying on a cross outside Jerusalem.

Where was God on that black Friday?

But God didn’t abandon his son there that day.

He stood by Jesus and raised him to new life again on Easter Day.

Whenever you feel abandoned and betrayed, remember this: God does not ever turn His back on you.

And He offers you new life and hope through Jesus Christ.

God Accepts Us

 

Parenting is a challenging responsibility.

Good parents don’t accept everything their children do. But they accept them as persons. Children should not have to keep proving themselves.

By trusting in Jesus Christ, we become members of God’s family. God our Father doesn’t always accept things we do. But He accepts us as persons. We don’t have to keep proving ourselves.

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…. Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls.”

Home with him is where we belong.

God is Not Disconnected

“This is a Telecommunications announcement. The number you have dialed has been disconnected. Thank you.”

Sometimes it’s just that we’ve dialed the wrong number. But sometimes the number we dialed has been cut off. That’s frustrating!

For too many people, God is like a phone that has been disconnected…misfortune…shattered dreams…futile attempts to find meanings in life. All these can lead people to think God doesn’t exist.

But God exists. He’s not a disconnected number. He comes to meet us in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is our connection to God. And knowledge of Jesus is yours through the Bible

 

Ordinary Clay

 

Do you sometimes feel you are lost in the crowd—just ordinary? Many people in the Bible that God chose felt they were too ordinary to do the job.

For example, God chose Gideon to conquer the mighty Midianites. Gideon said, “But Lord… My clan is the weakest… and I am the least in my family,”

But the Lord said: “I will be with you”. That is the secret.

Not only did God help Gideon. He helped him do it without weapons and with only 100 men.

“We are the clay, you are the potter”. Says Isaiah. Don’t be discouraged. God can shape His beautiful works from the most ordinary clay.

 

Family Relationship

Relationships often appear to be based on how good you are in bed, but it seems crazy to base life on a series of feelings. Where does it all end?

A long time ago, a man of God wrote: “Don’t look only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others”.

We can see a true relationship only when we look at how God treats us.

That’s why Jesus Christ died; he put our interest ahead of his own. He gave up his life so we could be part of the family of God.

When you follow Jesus Christ you do try to think of others, and to respond to them in love.

 

Lost Lives

In 1865 Paul Bogle was hanged. Mr. George William Gordon, tried by court-martial at Morant Bay also was hanged. A year later, Mr. Edward Eyrie, responsible for these actions was recalled and dismissed from Imperial Service.

This sequence was “another instance of victory won by a battle lost”, as Mark Twain said.

There was another lost battle that also brought victory. A man called Jesus lost his life on a blooded cross. But he saved the human race in the process.

He rose to life again. Others thought they had defeated him. But he won. Now, life in him is victorious living.
