Tonight at re:think/life skills at re:generation church, we discussed trust from the point of view that we need to trust that we are not here by accident and that God did not just throw us together in a hurry, but carefully chose all our physical features and our characteristics to make us exactly how He wants us to be, long before we were even conceived. Once we learn to trust this, we can learn to trust that He has an incredible plan for our lives.

God commands us to love our neighbours as ourselves, but in order to love our neighbour, we must first learn to love ourselves the way God has made us. He also instructs us to pour the love that He places in us out on others. So, in order to be effective at loving others and making a difference in the lives of others, we need to love and trust the way God has made us and to learn to walk in that trust to find the path He has set out for us.

Trust in Christ to Lead You
by Joyce Meyer - posted March 26, 2013

You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to honor and glory. —Psalm 73:24
We believe that God is inherently good and that He is also in control of our lives. Therefore, when tragedy strikes or loss occurs, we don't understand why God does not prevent such things from happening to us and hurting us so badly.
Faced with tragic loss, often we become angry and ask, "If God is good and all-powerful, why does He allow bad things to happen to good people?" This question becomes a major issue when it is we, God's own children, who are the ones suffering.
At such times, reasoning wants to scream out, "This makes no sense at all!" Over and over the question, "Why, God, why?" torments those who are grieving over losses in their life, just as it also tortures the lonely and the dejected. Excessive reasoning, trying to figure out things for which we will not be able to find an answer, torments and brings much confusion; but Proverbs 3:5,6 tells us that trust in the Lord brings assurance and direction: Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. When we face a time of crisis in life, we need direction. These scriptures tell us that trusting God is the way to find that direction. Trust requires allowing some unanswered questions to be in your life!
No matter how badly you may be hurting from a loss or tragedy, the Holy Spirit can give you a deep peace that somehow everything will be all right. Being angry at God is useless because He is the only One Who can help.
{From the book New Day, New You by Joyce Meyer}
