3 Reasons to Just Trust Jesus Today
I AM NOT ENOUGH...ON MY OWN
It is human to believe we can be independent and lead our own lives. If we were tobe rulers of our own lives we would see how insufficient, powerless and dangerous we are in those positions. Insufficient in the sense that we are not all knowing, not all loving, and have bounds. Powerless in the sense that we are not infinite, omnipotent, or unchanging. Dangerous in the sense that because we are not the things that make up a sufficient and powerful God we have no idea how we should lead ourselves.
THE LOGIC OF SURRENDER
Much of the time we as people fail and fall short of even our own demands. And when we do we get upset and condemn ourselves. If you think about it we do more harm to ourselves than good. Would you want someone who didn't have your best interest, who didn't love you fully, who often failed and hurt you to lead you? Then why do we try to lead ourselves? Why don’t we let the sufficient, powerful and peace giving God rule us? In Psalm 46:6 it says “the Nations Rage and the Kingdoms totter, He utters his voice and the earth melts”. Our God is so powerful that at the utterance of his voice the whole earth melts.
HE IS NOT JUST ANY GOD
I encourage you to let THIS God rule you. Let a God who loves without bounds and without restraint love you with a divine wholeness. Let a God who is infinite and unchanging be your anchor. Let a God who can still the storms and rages and totterings of your mind with a simple utterance do so. Our walks with the Lord and our lives in general have to be dependent on our God. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
