Trusting Is Not Easy


It Is Written, Isaiah 26:3,  you will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Faith and trust are the key components of getting prayers answered.  It is easy to say "if God said it, it is" but it is what happens after that, that counts.
If we still hold onto any part of the problem, we are blocking the results. Ask yourself if you have truly let go, or are you hanging onto it.  Trust and faith can take a while for all of the pieces to fall into place.  There is no scale or anything else to show you that the process has started, or how it is progressing.  It feels like everything is just hanging out there.
God's time is not our time.  We must trust His Word that He will do what He says.  Patience is very difficult most of the time.  Most people have a tendency to take a problem back.  When we do, God stops His work.
When we come to our senses and give the request back to God, God has to start over.  Any lapse in trust or faith does the same thing.  When we take something back, or doubt, we are adding to the time it takes to receive our request, and creating the very condition that causes our impatience.
One last reminder.  Realize that satan hates God, and you.  He will do everything he can to cause a problem between you and God.  Remember, the closer you get to the prize, the harder satan works.  Be comforted in the fact that satan has no power over you in Jesus name.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
