Trust

I have been reading Joyce Meyer’s “UnShakeable Trust”. It is so enlightening and on point. I wanted to share a few nuggets that I received from this book that God has opened my eyes to.

  1. Noah Webster said that trust is a resting of the mind. Apostle Paul confirmed it when he said that those who believe (trust) in God will enter into his rest (Hebrews 4:3)
  2. God offers us Peace of mind when we place our trust in Him.
  3. As we learn to want what God wants for us even more than we want for ourselves, we can have peace of mind in every situation.
  4. Our peace of mind rests on whether or not we are willing to trust that God’s will is better than ours even if we don’t understand it.
  5. So I decided to trust with my eyes wide open, and that means I don’t expect anyone (expect God) to never disappoint me.
  6. My own expectations are the source of my disappointment, not God, because scripture teaches that if we put our trust in him, He never disappoints us (Romans 5:5)
  7. I plan for unplanned things and that allows me to keep my peace. Always remember that it is wise to plan on some unplanned things.
  8. God is willing to meet you where you are and help you get to where you need to be.
  9. No one is stuck forever in their past unless they choose to be.
  10. If you hear yourself saying ‘I can’t go on like this much longer,’ it probably means that you are trying to do more than what you are created for.
  11. God leads those who truly wants His guidance.
  12. God is nothing more than a spiritual idea unless we trust Him enough to do what He asks us to do, and perhaps to do nothing if that is what He requires.
  13. Love is not a feeling we have but a choice we make about how we will treat people.
  14. One of the wisest things we can do is know our weaknesses and lean on God to grant us the strength not to give in to it.
  15. Peace  is never found in relying on your own understanding.
  16. God sometimes waits to answer because we are asking the wrong question.
  17. Jesus never asks us to go where He has not been. It comforts me to know that He has always gone before me and prepared the way that I might walk in.
  18. If we care too much about what people think of us, we will never fully follow Christ.
  19. Once I learned to value people where they are instead of where I want them to be, much of my suffering and misery ceased.
