Bible Ballistics: “BBs” Change?
We all encounter change that is out of our control. We still must make decisions and respond. How are we to deal with change, especially sudden, unexpected change?
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
We can be ready for change by living in a “trust” relationship with God. How do we come to “trust” in God?
Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
We must know and revere God (the meaning of fear).
When we come to know Him in faith we will find Him trustworthy.
John 17:9-11 “I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me,
that they may be one, as we are.”
Not just knowing HIM but being one with HIM.. When we are born again we ..’become the sons of God’ (see John 1:12).
Children who come to know that no matter the circumstances they can trust their Father!!
Do you know HIM?
If so trust HIM with your every step…..even the ‘mis’-steps.
He is always faithful.
If not call on Him for salvation in Jesus. Repent of your sin, and trust His death as payment for your sin. (see Romans 10:8-11)
So? Here’s our shot for the day—???? Trust Him regardless- “For we walk by faith, not by sight:” 2 Cor. 5:7
So? ?????? Press on in faith, He is trustworthy. And keep looking up!!!
