Sermons about Trusting God
Change is a constant in all of our lives. As we move into transitions, we need to see them as good. We need to grab ahold of God, let go of ourselves and trust God for joy in this life
Trusting God requires depending upon Him, in prayer, for everything in life including the basics just for today.
In this final message of our Making Life Work series, we ask a question that every one person will have to answer at some point…how seriously we will take the claims of Jesus and the story of God I got some really good advice when I first experienced God as a 25 year old, my brother who was talking to me about Christ at the time, realized that the Lord was doing something in me, and he said to me, “Give God everything you have for two weeks and if it doesn’t work, go back and live your life anyway you want” I didn’t give God everything I had, but I did work at making room for God in my life. I decided that God needed to more important in my life than He had been before. We learn to trust God, but how much will we trust him…how seriously are we going to follow him Proverbs 3:5-6 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Can each of us learn to trust God more? I believe we can and Proverbs 3:5-6 helps to show us how trust can grow 1. Choose Rightly 2. Lean Fully 3. Step Wisely
We must let God be first place, and not usurp him.
Underneath every problem in life is a wrong view or application of the character and nature of God (Theology), so in this storm tossed life, sandcastle thoughts about God will not do. We need a solid foundation an anchor, an accurate weighty view of God, about all that He is, all that He has done and all that He continues to do. But if right thinking about God is so essential to all aspects of life, and with so many opinions out there, how do i know i am thinking rightly about Him?
Perhaps there is no place to experience the greatest joy and sorrow than in the family. Today, we look at Hannah’s prayer as it relates to family. In this message, we will consider how we, like Hannah, are to be transparent with God and are to trust God even in the midst of pain and confusion.
Trusting God is the key principle in every matter of our relationship with God. We are saved not as the result of our initiative, but God’s initiative. We cannot save ourselves. We cannot be good enough in order to be made right with God. Salvation is God’s gracious gift to us. That is a matter of trust. When we understand that our basic need in life—to be saved—is a matter of trust, we ought also to acknowledge that every other issue of our relationship with God is also a matter of trust. So, whatever your list of worries looks like, all things are matters that ultimately rely on trust. Our health, our children, our future, our relationships, our addictions—all things—are a matter of trust.
Despair and brokenness are everywhere and humanity needs hope to survive. But what is hope? Surely it can’t be the limp, uncertain optimism portrayed when people say, “I hope things get better someday.” No, there is more—so much more. Those who have faith in Christ have a confident hope because they are God’s special possession.

Hail To The King! # 4 - DEAD SOLDIERS, DEPOSED QUEEN MOTHERS, DISEASED FEET, AND TRUSTING GOD - Part 2
Kings Abijah and Asa each had their glorious moments - those times when they did the right thing. From their lives we learn the importance of trusting God, being willing to take extreme measures in our obedience, the importance of finishing well, and the amazing nature of God in wanting to help those who trust him.
