I am sure we all feel this way. Other people just LOOK like they really have it
together and seem to have smarter things to say. Other people may
know they are going to heaven and that God loves them - but do they?
I was recently told in confession to pray that I would trust Him more. I wonder
what a person does that trusts God more?
The simplicity of the gospel really strikes me. People were clamoring to John the Baptist saying, “what must I do to be saved?” All he said were simple things like, if you have 2 coats, share with one who has none, don’t bully people, be satisfied with your pay. Be satisfied with your pay? How does that save you?
And then in the old testament it says “what does God require of you but that you
act justly and walk humbly with your God?”
In the New Testament, after Jesus fed everyone with the loaves and fishes, they
all said to Him, “What must we do to do the work of God?” and all Jesus said was,
"This is the work of God - to believe in the One whom He sent, Jesus Christ.
Trusting Jesus is a mystery to me too.
But I can tell you this without question – God does Love you. This is a fact, and
no amount of worrying on your part can change it. Not only that, but you will trust
Him, just as I will. Why? Because you want to, and you will pray for it, and so
will I. We don’t need to worry, because it will all happen by the power of God.
Now they don’t have a smiley for this, but just imagine after these words, a lot of
tiny hearts, twinkling and raining down, down, down… His millions of tiny acts of
love will keep raining on you forever… I pray this favor from our Lord: that He would
show you tomorrow, it is just for you, YES, He does love you, It is He who has
done every good thing that has ever happened to you. Thank Him tomorrow, no
matter how small a thing He does for you, just to say, “I love you.”:love:
