Overcoming the Desire to Trust in Ourselves [Audio]

Sleepless nights along with constant worries are a sure sign that we do not believe in the power of God. Many Believers are just as anxious and concerned with the vicissitudes of life as the unbelievers. Have you considered that trusting in yourself leads to ongoing internal conflict? The consequences of thinking too highly of ourselves and lacking scriptural knowledge of God’s promises prevents us from having a relationship with Jesus Christ based on faith and trust.

Can you imagine a best friend, husband, wife, or child saying this to you, “To be honest, I have never really trusted you?” Our mindsets and lifestyles reveal “In Whom We Trust.” God knows our resume of strengths and weaknesses. Still, He desires that we embrace His Omnipotence. God is fully aware that He is perfect. We lack peace [joy and happiness] because of our entanglement in the struggle of Faith and Trust in God. Therefore, we must trust Him wholeheartedly with our lives and the faith that He will always provide or sacrifice our free gifts of peace, joy, and contentment.

Omniscient–All-knowing. From the beginning to the end God knows every detail–great and small of our lives. Our future is completely known to our Heavenly Father.

To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him? Isaiah 40:18

Have you not known? Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is He who sits above the circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers… . Isaiah 40:21-22

Because we have reached a certain socioeconomic status, accumulated an overabundance of our desires, and have attained the worldly goal of success, we have placed a spiritual brick wall between Jesus and us. It is not possible to trust in God and to trust in ourselves.

And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him. Hebrews 11:6

God Promises are “Yes” and “Amen”

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 5:31-34

Prayer: God, we confess that we have been living according to our perception of your power. We ask for forgiveness of the sin of self-reliance. As we prepare for the Sabbath, we desire to make a covenant with you to place our complete faith and trust in you. We pray this prayer in the Worthy Name of Jesus. Amen. © 2021 Sonya Johnson, Faithful Fishers, and Woman, You Are Loved by God Ministries

I am a Woman of God who desires to provide spiritual guidance to those in mental, emotional, and spiritual distress. Many of us have experienced a devastating life event within the past three years. If so, then we share something in common. My life restarted in 2020. And my healing journey lasted for 16 months. It takes courage, perseverance, faith, and trust in God to restructure and build a new life. Yet, in Isaiah 43, verses 1-3, God promises us that we will never be alone. We can have the assurance that God is with us in every stormy hardship. Pray daily and pray often. Study the Bible. The Scriptures are a Love Letter from God to those who accept Jesus as their personal Savior. You will receive comfort, knowledge, and wisdom. God says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love." Jeremiah 31:3. Be blessed in Jesus' name. Amen. By profession, I am a Registered Nurse, with a passion for helping others overcome the obstacles in their lives. I am a writer of Devotionals, Romantic Poetry, and Research Articles. The recent development of Mentoring and launching as a Motivational Speaker has prompted me to address real-life issues for women from a spiritual perspective.
