Trust


 

Childlike faith:)

Childlike faith:)

It’s no secret.  We are merely spiritual beings having a human experience. Because man fell in the garden sin was born into the world. There is not one who is exempt from this sinful nature. We are all born sinners who have absolutely no ability to change anything in our lives a part for you. We are required to trust in you with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. Once we do this we begin to experience the true transformation of LOVE.

I tend to send up countless prayers about you helping me trust you. I often ask you to give me the ability to lean not on my own understanding and to strengthen me. I know all things work together for the good and in your perfect time because there is no time like your time. Psalm 9:10 says; Those who know your name trust in you, for you O LORD, do not abandon those who search for you. Is this awesome or what, trust is a beautiful gift bestowed by the LORD. Distrust is often painful because we tend to question other peoples motives towards us. With trust, relationships become more intimate and are deepened with others. When we know what people are telling us is true, we know they are acting in our best interest. When we are not able to trust God or people, we rob ourselves of true peace. However, you O GOD, we are absolutely confident that you always have our best interests in mind because you love us so greatly.

Speaking of trust, today after work I had an appointment at the Dentist. This morning I asked the Lord to show me a great sign about my family. When I say family, I am speaking of my wife Emily and my daughter Alice who live in Australia. Now here’s the crazy thing about this entire situation. I had to reschedule this appointment twice, once because my boss went on vacation and the other time because of the weather. This is how it ended up being today at four o’clock.

I jumped in my car after work and went straight to the Dental office. When I walked in the lady behind the counter said she would be with me in a minute. A few minutes passed and then she came out into the hall way and said Michael I’m ready. I got up and followed her back to this small room where a chair awaited me. I sat down and she said are you ready, Betsy is not able to do your cleaning as usual. I asked who was going to do it? She said my name is Emily and I am going to do it for you. As time went by she asked me if I was married or had any kids. I said my wife’s name is Emily just like yours and she began to laugh a little. Then I said I have a ten month old daughter and her name is Alice. She said this is crazy, I have a two-year old girl and her name is Alice. Then she asked me when my daughter was born and I said March. She said this is getting weird, my daughter to was born in March. I began to laugh carefully since she was busy cleaning my teeth. I almost asked her if her husband’s name was Michael.

I thought that was pretty wild. Romans 8:28 says; And God causes all things to work together for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. I truly believe this and it wasn’t by accident this happened today. It was like God was telling me something, what I just don’t know. So I have prayed about it and hopefully I receive an answer. If anyone has any ideas they would like to share with me I am all ears. I am truly thankful for this. We serve an awesome God. So I encourage all who read this to put your trust in the LORD, give it all to him. We will be blessed.

I have been invited to share my testimony at a new church this Sunday so would you all please pray for me. God bless you all.

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.

    You already have identified it. God was reminding you of HIs word in Psalm 9:10, and reminding you that He knows you by name, that you know Him by name, that you call on His name, and that you yourself are called by His name.
    Too many Scriptures about His wonderful names, and about calling on His name, to list here, but just to enjoy a few:
    Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD. Psalm 105:3
    Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. Psalm 91:14
    Also, you recalled that you didn’t get to check the husband’s name —
    For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

    Have a great day!
