Total Faith in the Lord

July 8, 2008 | Comments Off on Total Faith in the Lord

One must always have total faith in the Lord. We should trust that He will provide for us no matter what He has planned for us. Whether we are looking for a job, looking for a relationship, discerning what to do with our lives, we should have complete, total, loving trust in Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, Sender of the Holy Spirit.

God created us in His image and likeness (Gen 1:27). He loves us in His Whole Being. He has everything planned out for us. Yet, so many people try to do it the hard way, their way. God may have given us a free will to do whatever we please, but in the end, He alone determines what will happen in our lives.

When we worry, we are causing Him pain. Why is this? Because, He knows that in the long run we will be happy, yet, we do not trust, we do not believe.

We live in a society where one must accomplish his or her own goals by themselves. There is no mention of faith. There is no mention of God anymore without being ridiculed or shunned. But, that is what we are faced with. Those who do believe in God have felt His presence, and will not ignore it. It is our own particular cross to bare, and we share it with the Lord.

Now, we know that God has everything planned. The best thing we do is to pray for the virtue of patience as we wait for God’s Divine Plan to unravel before our eyes. Sometimes it takes longer than we want, but again, it is not what we want, but what God wants.

Total trust in the Lord will bring us happiness. When we tell God everything that is going on in our lives, He listens, He knows. He will bring total happiness as long as we give Him our lives and allow Him to work with us and to mold us into the person that He wants us to be.

God will provide the job, the relationship, the happiness that you are looking for. But He wants you to trust in Him. I am sure that there have been times when you have said “God, if ____ happens I will do _____”. He has shown you that He is there for you, but did you keep that promise? Maybe you are having difficulties fulfilling that promise, but, He knows your struggles, and those are the same things you can bring to Him in prayer.

May God bless you.
