I Trust You Lord

Trust says, I know God can do it, because I remember He did it once before.

“And they who know Your name [who have experience and acquaintance with Your mercy] will lean on and confidently put their trust in You, for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek (inquire of and for) You [on the authority of God’s Word and the right of their necessity].”  Psalm 9:10 Amplified Bible

I’m sitting here writing to you from my desk, feeling a little down about the stress of my current situation. I wanted to lift my spirits, so I began to sing as I often do. These words from one of my favorite songs came to my mind: “But, I’ll Trust You.” Sometimes we go through situations where we feel so beaten down by life, the decisions we’ve made, or just the journey of waiting on God to do what He promised.

Trust is so easy to fail at because our current situations can seem so overwhelming that we forget how awesome God is and how He’s been there even when we couldn’t see him. I’ve made a decision that I will trust Him! I will trust Him in darkness and in sunshine. I will trust Him when I’m happy, or when I’m sad. I will trust Him when funds are low or when my bank account is stacked. I will Trust Him.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were faced with a giant, the fiery furnace. They were being ruled by a king and commanded to worship an idol god. When the king told them if they didn’t worship the idol god of gold he would throw them into a blazing fiery furnace, the three Hebrew boys replied in this manner: “King Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to deliver us from it, and he will deliver us from Your Majesty’s hand. But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.” Daniel 3:14-18 NIV

They were saying, “even if my bill is past due and I get evicted, even if my man walks out on me with these kids, even if I get a pink slip today, satan I serve you notice: GOD IS ABLE TO DELIVER ME FROM IT. I will walk around holding my head high in victory of Jesus, not in defeat of circumstance.”

The story goes on to tell how they were indeed thrown into the fire. But this is where the plot thickens.  Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers, “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?” They replied, “Certainly, Your Majesty.” He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” Daniel 3:24-25

Even when you are thrown into the fire TRUST and believe that not only is God in there with you, but He will bring you out unharmed, unscathed, unbattered, and UNBOUND.

Dear Daddy,

I thank You for bringing to my memory even when I am in a slump that if You don’t bring me out, You will get in there with me and bring me out unharmed. God teach me how to trust You more. This road is tough, and it isn’t easy, but I want be able to say in boldness I’LL TRUST YOU. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Ladies, I EMPOWER you today to trust God in the midst of your fire. Trust that He will restore your broken heart, He will handle your finances, He will protect your children, and He will provide all of your provisions. He just asks that you trust Him.

  1. Kay,

    This is a much needed word for me. Day in and day out ….all day I have to keep reminding myself that “I Trust You.” He has never failed me. The outlook looks so bleak because the current circumstances are overwhelming but I have decided that no matter what I have no other option but to trust Jesus. Thanks for sharing and reminding me why I trust him.

    1. Yes, Girl, we have to remember that DAILY. All day I’m faced with situations that can highlight my circumstance, but if I want to get to the kingdom, its only through kingdom thinking, so I trust Him. I’m sure His outcome is better than my planned one.

  2. Kay, if we could only trust and believe in God with every single breath that he give’s us. He is so worthy of ALL! if we could trust and believe in him as if Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego did. If we could and would trust in him just like Jesus did when they hung him on the cross (he didn’t give up, he prayed even harder) if we trust and believed in him knowing he will bring us out of the fire what a better place we would be in. I’m not saying we don’t trust and believe, I just think we let flesh get in the way, our thought’s consume us and take over, our emotions on the situation take over leaving us vulnerable and we tune that little still voice out that is crying out saying I GOT YOU! I’m guilty of it and let fear creep in from time to time. Then I just go to that place that is untouchable by the world and those worldly thoughts. You and your family will be just fine, continue to lean and depend on the Lord for he will supply your every need! God Bless

    1. Yes Marquetta, gotta trust him!! Thanks for your post and encouragement. God has been so awesome to my family! He’s blessed us abundantly. Thank you for reading.

  3. Wow!!!! I am amazed @ how these messages are always right on time for me. I am battling with making a big decision in my life. This is the song that I went to sleep to last nite.

  4. This was definitely encouraging. I was just praising God in advance, earlier, for something. I don’t know what it is, but I trust God with my future.

    1. I was just thinking the other day about how God already knows the ending (our future) but yet we have trouble trusting him. Keep on trusting!!

  5. WOW…I must say thank you. Today, I had to go take a test that I was so reluctant to take because I was not sure that I was going to do well considering I’ve become lazy in some areas. I could not avoid taking this test any longer if I did it was going to prohibit me from moving forward with the things that I achieved. I put my trust in the Lord and went in there and took the test and scored above average. When I received the results my eyes teared up because I put this test off for some years. I put my TRUST in the Lord and left it there.

  6. So Im responding later than I normally do but Ive read this post SEVERAL times today. I needed this today more than you will ever know. My baby’s eyes were hemorrhaging and of course I was thinking the worst all day long. I couldnt help but to worry that my child would lose her sight or even worse die. But I kid you not, EVERY time I let an ounce of doubt creep in, I opened your post and read it and said I TRUST YOU LORD! So Kay, know that your post was totally on time for me (and a whole lot of others I see!)

    Stay tuned for more about my situation today…

    Be Blessed girl and continue to let God use you! Love ya!

    1. I think I’ve read it 30 times since writing it. I needed the re-encouragement as well. I can’t wait to hear the news!!!
