Steps to Trust

In our day to day lives, sometimes it seems as though every thing that we are taught to believe about the God of heaven, His goodness, His care for us, and His love for us is challenged. The circumstances, the things happening around us and to us are too overpowering.

Still God tells us to trust Him. Easier said than done. There has to be a starting point to trust. It is a concious choice that must be made by every individual .Trusting is not easy. There are times when we choose to put our trust in a person, and we are disappointed. With many people, they give up on trusting anyone because one person disappointed or misused their trust. God will not disappoint. You can trust God to always love you unconditionally. Even if you choose to ignore him, his love for you is there.

You can trust God to provide for you. You have air to breath, without it you could not live. He sends the rain, He orders the seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter. He provides the resources for you to be able to live. All of these things the Lord provides to everyone because of His love for all mankind. Because He is the Creator, the One who created all things and all people and created them to live forever, God also has provided for your eternal home. He would like for you to choose to live with Him for eternity in the place that He built for you.
When you choose to trust Him as your Saviour, the Lord is faithful to provide food, clothing, and shelter for you. He cares for all people, but those who trust him as their personal Lord and Saviour He cares for as his own children.
Once part of His family,you will learn that He can be trusted to meet every need in your life.
if you choose to ignore God then He will still provide the air, the seasons, the resources you need to make a living, because He still loves His creation no matter how the creation treats Him. But you will have a life that is missing the greater fulfillment that it could have. When you die from this earth you will still live eternally, but not in the place God built for you with Him. You will live in a place that he had to create later for those who chose not to be with Him.

This place was originally created for an angel named Satan who chose not to live with God. Since Satan did not have the power of God, and would never be able to do the things that God could do, he wanted God to give him His home, His place as God, and His rights as the Creator of all things. Satan talked other angels into coming together with him to fight against God in His home. God had no choice but to make them leave His home. So He created them a place that they one day would have to live in. Separate from God and His home. Since only God is good, there is no good thing in Satan's home. Since God is light, there is no light in Satan's home. Since Satan chooses to ruin the lives of the people God created and loves, God has no choice but to punish him when the time comes. This place that has been created for Satan and his angels is where he will be punished for all eternity.

These are the only two places for the eternal souls of people to live once they leave this earth. The choice is up to each individual today. Where would you rather live? If you want God to care for you as one of His children and then take you to His home once you leave this earth, then ask Him. He is listening.

God Bless,
