Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5.
We find it hard to trust in Him, because we’ve been hurt before.. Because of our failed relationships and broken promises, we tend to transfer the hurt and the fear of been let down again into our relationship with God.
We’ve tried so hard before, and it becomes natural for us to despair and unwilling to try again.. But you can try again, when it seems all is lost don’t be afraid to call; the assurance is given to us in the word. God is not a man that He should lie.. For God cannot lie.. Take note, it is not, He will not lie, the word says ‘He cannot lie’ (the possibility of telling a lie is impossible). Because the God who has promised is faithful. And this is the assurance that God has given to us that call on His name.
There must have been people who had promised but failed, but today, know that the One that has promised is faithful. Though it tarries, it will surely come to pass for His word does not fail.. You can trust again, you can place all your trust in God without fear of been disappointed.

Some of us are passing through a time of great distress. Though we buckle up and stand straight, smile and act as if all is well, yet we are depressed. That constant feeling of not meeting up, of insufficiency and failure often adds to the frustration.
No matter what happens, I have come to understand through God’s word that no one has it all, just looking at others alone; shouts out this reality, that there is always someone better than the one who is good and so on. There is nothing new under the sun.. That pain that cuts through your heart is something you don’t have to carry alone.
You may be sick, you may be facing some hard times and feeling a deep sense of guilt because of your sins and failures. You might even be feeling unfortunate, because of where you are right now but know this, there is another in a worse condition. But in all this, hope, fragile but never dying hope is what God calls us to possess. Never give up, keep holding on, you will smile again. Know that God cares and He understands.

Most people when faced with a crisis reach out to God! Even those who don’t really have a close relationship with Jesus will ask their family, friends, and even strangers to pray. But how many people make that commitment and never follow through? The words, “I’ll pray for you,” have become just something to say, like any other common words of comfort when you feel sorry for someone or sad because of what trial they are facing. It’s almost like saying, “Have a nice day.”
But when we tell someone that we will pray for them, we have made a commitment before God to earnestly lift that person up in prayer, asking for God’s will to be done in their lives. If we have no intention of praying, then we should not make a commitment to do so. If at all possible, it’s good to stop what we are doing right then and there and lift them up to our heavenly Father!
There’s a world of hurting people all around us, so why not start praying for them today? And the next time someone asks for prayer, say sincerely, “I’ll be happy to pray for you. Let’s pray now.” ” Texts: Philippians 1:19, 1 Timothy 2:1, Ephesians 6:18. The truth is I am praying for you and would pray with you.. Pray for me too. Sabbath Jollof is served.
