For all they did cast in of their abundance;
but she of her want did cast in all that she had even all her living. Mark 12:44
Are you giving your all to Jesus? Is he the Lord of your life? Do you trust
him with everything? Or do you try to maintain control of everything that is going on
around you? Jesus said he had to be first in our life. That means he must be trusted with
everything. Do you trust him with your children or do you constantly worry that something
might happen to them? Do you not think that God is big enough to watch out for them where
ever they may be? God is everywhere, he says that he will be with us even unto the end of
the world. Do you not trust God with the care of watching over your children at all times
or do you think that you can do better?
Do you trust him with your finances? Do you give God his ten percent that is
due along with offerings? or do you give him more along the lines of one percent? And yet
you complain cause you don't have enough money to pay the bills. Everything we have
belongs to God he only allows us to use it and why would he trust us with more if we are
not giving him back the ten percent that he requires? If he can't trust you with a little
to use for his work what makes you think that he ought to trust you with more?
Do you trust him with your health? Or do you put your trust in man? Do you
run to the doctor every time that you get a sniffle? Or do you trust that God
will bring you
out of it in his time? Are you always taking man's medicines? Isn't God big enough to cure
a headache? Of course God has given man the knowledge to help others but do we really
abuse that knowledge? Have we come to rely on man for everything instead of God? Have we
come to the point where we only look to God for the things we know man can't do ? Has it
become that God is the last resort instead of the first choice?
Do you trust him with your marriage? or your relationships in dating? Do you
believe that God can work out marriage problems or must you go to a counselor over every
little problem you have with you spouse? Have you forgotten to pray together over it? How
often do you pray with your spouse in total agreement for something? Of course you pray
together believing God for something but do you pray together asking God to help you work
out your differences with each other?
Do you trust God with your soul? Of course you say you do but do you really?
Or are you always trying to do something that will make God think better of you? Do you
really believe that you are God's child or are you always trying to win his approval? The
Bible tells us that we are none worthy but he died for our sins and he makes us worthy
through his blood.
Can you truly trust God with every aspect of your life? Are you really
willing to give up the control that you have and give it to God? When you are then you
will be one step closer to a more personal relationship with God that he wants each of us
Have a blessed day.
