Trust and Seek God First


Many times when we go through trials, we tend to immediately pick up the phone, speak with a friend, or update our status on facebook to try and determine what to do.  We tend to take the opportunity to edge God out and seek guidance from others first.  We can become so dependent on someone else that we lose our dependency on God. Then when we lose that loved one or the relationship comes to an end, we find ourselves stuck.  God desires for you to follow and trust Him to get you through, and no one else.  

“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man” Psalm 118:8

 

When these things come be determined to depend on God. When you are facing a situation in your life, make the decision to seek guidance from God first. Pray over it with God, recite and meditate on His scriptures and then and only then share it with others.  Ask God to remove this dependence on others and fill it with His presence.  When we depend on the arms of flesh to meet our needs more than the hand of God that is when we go wrong.  Remember, God is always there for you.

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:5-8

 

This is my Prayer: Jesus help me realize You are source of all answers and the one I need to seek first.  God teach me to give my problems and concerns over to You. Show me how to depend on You, to carry all my stress, to carry all my burdens, to carry all the anxieties of life.  Lord I am depending on You for every need in my life, set me free to serve you. In Your Name, Amen.
