In the midst of life’s uncertainties and challenges, one profound source of resilience and inner power is acquiring strength by trusting God. Explore how unwavering faith can be your anchor in the storm of anxiety and doubt, guiding you towards a path of serenity and purpose. Read on to learn more.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
Do you sometimes struggle with worry and anxiety? Me too. Yet to the anxious, the proverb above challenges us to change our focus and our pursuits. To take a minute and examine what’s important. To consider what matters. To seek the right counsel.
The final difference between one leader and another is about how much pressure he can endure. When a leader is strong, their presence radiates calm, confidence, and courage.
Where can we find such strength? Isn’t it faith? But faith in what? The strength and usefulness of our faith is only as good as the object of our faith.
You place faith in the chair you’re sitting in. Do you have faith that the chair can do more than hold your weight? Can it teach you finance? Can it plan your next career move? Of course not. Your faith in the chair is only as good as the weight it can support.
Acquiring Strength by Trusting God
To place your trust in God is good for today and eternity. Right now, you live in a created time and space that sustains your life. When you die, you will continue to live but outside of time and space. So no matter what today or the future holds, you are literally in the hands of the creator.
To trust in God is to rest in the idea that he created you for a purpose and it is good. To trust in God means to believe your life and concerns matter to him. To trust in God means to pursue him in all matters of life and death. To see him as your source of all wisdom, strength, and comfort.
When you trust God for who he is and what he is doing and what he will do, your anxiety vanishes because you know you’re in good hands.
