Trust God. This is one of the most transformative ideas I have remembered. Now someone might say, “So what’s the big deal? Most people trust God.” And I would ask, “Do you trust God?” If you were asked this question, your immediate response would probably be, “Yes, I do trust God.” If you were also asked, “Do you ever worry?” Your answer would probably be, “Yes, sometimes I worry.” But, my friend, let me say that if you truly trusted God, then you would never worry. In any situation, you can not fully trust God, and also worry. If you choose to worry in any situation, then know that you are not fully trusting God.
Trust God or worry: these are the two choices you have in every situation. Trust God, and be at peace. Worry, and experience stress. Your choices are that simple, and you will make your life as peaceful or stressful as you choose to make it. Trust God and be at peace; that is all that is asked of you. Yet, over and over again, people choose to worry rather than trust, and make their lives a living Hell.
Your level of peace is in direct correlation to your level of trust in God. The more you trust God, the more peace you will experience. The less you trust God, the less peace you will experience. If you choose to completely trust God, then stress will not be a part of your experience. If you suffer from any level of stress, it is because you have chosen not to fully trust God.
You might try to convince yourself that you can do both at the same time. But, how could you fully trust the Creator of the universe with a specific event in your life, and also worry that God is not carrying it out with your best interests in mind? Now, you could say that the Creator does not have your best interests in mind, and therefore you are worried, but somewhere deep within, you know that this is not so. For how could the Father of peace, happiness, kindness and love have anything but your best interests in mind? It is this that you need to remember anytime you experience worry or stress in any situation.
