Trusting Jesus

As the moments fly...what'ere befall...trusting Jesus...that is all. It seems uncomplicated and not so hard. We've got no reason for pride or personal trumpet blowing. We simply trust Jesus and joy flows. We trust Jesus and hope is amplified. We trust Jesus and difficulty transforms to solutions.

Don't you see it? Don't you experience it? Those who know Christ in their souls know what I'm writing about. It's about miracles and unexplained peace of mind. It's about light where others are having trouble seeing through the dark. It's Jesus. It's always been about Jesus. It will always be about Jesus. Hallelujah!

Romans 3:21 (TLB)
21 But now God has shown us a different way to heaven --not by "being good enough" and trying to keep his laws, but by a new way (though not new, really, for the Scriptures told about it long ago). Now God says he will accept and acquit us--declare us "not guilty"--if we trust Jesus Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we have been like.

Thanks, Jim. You have put this so well..

My most recent blog was not so diplomatic. You are right. When Jesus is trusted and he gets the glory the results speak for themselves.

Trust is not as simple as some might believe. To quote another old song: Trust and obey, for there's no other way....
Trust and obedience must walk hand in hand.
We all know obedience does not come by blissful ignorance, but often sacrifice of one's one comfortability.
Sometimes it means sacrificing the FEELINGS of joy in order to take up the more meaningful joy of knowing you are right with God.
I do not struggle with the concept of trusting God, but following through with complete obedience to Him is a different matter - pray for me.
I pray that God's Salvation Army not only has the strength to trust God, but the wisdom given to obey.
I pray for you, Commissioner.
