Spiritually Speaking

By Pearl Harper

 

Trust God with all your problems   The more years that pass the more thankful I become just knowing that we have a God who has all power. No matter what our need may be He is able to help us if we really trust Him. I read that it is impossible for faith to overdraw the account in God’s bank. I believe that. If fact we read in Matthew 17:20, it we have enough faith we can move mountains. In Mark Chapter 5, we read the story concerning the woman who had so much faith she only touched the hem of Jesus garment and was healed instantly. One lesson here, she prayed and pressed her way. She had an urgent need; she had this problem for 12 years. Think how she must have felt to be whole again, after suffering for all of those years. Some think problems are too big for God to take care of- some think problems are too small to bother Him with. That’s not true, the small things can become big things or; if we don’t trust Him with everything we may not have the faith to trust Him with big problems. Don’t ever feel like you are making God weary when you take your problems to Him. He never gets bored listening to His children. I believe it makes Him very sad when we do not call on Him. Did you ever have anyone telling you a problem or a concern they had, and you would through scripture try to encourage them? And soon you would hear something like, but- you don’t know my problem or they would give some kind of excuse as if their problem was different. If we trust God He may say yes, no, or not now, but in My time. If we pray for God’s will to be done, He often answers our prayers different than we were thinking- but always better. He knows the desires of our heart better than we do. Some scriptures I never get tired of reading or sharing with others because; I have seen them come to pass in my lifetime so often, are these following scripture. The one that helped me so much in my early Christian experience when the enemy tried to put a spirit of fear in my life was: Proverbs 3:5-6. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.” I claimed that scripture immediately, the Lord led me to it, I had not at that time ever read it. It was just for me. The other scripture is similar but with much promise also. Psalm 37:3-5. “Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shall thou dwell in the Land, and verily thou shall be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass.” I cannot tell you I have never failed the Lord but I can tell you if we seek Him for our faults, He hears us. He has gave me so many blessings in my lifetime I could never praise Him enough, even though I wasn’t worthy or deserving of them. But, that’s how our great big God works. God Bless.
