He asks us to:
We need to remember that God is our sun and shield and He grants favor and honor as He blesses those who trust in Him. God wants us to lean on Him – Him alone – not self, nor other people. I’ve come to think some of my disappointments in others come because I was leaning on them too much. I still find myself doing this and once again find myself alone to learn He is with me and He is the only one I need to and can trust fully. By fully trusting in Him I’m giving Him all the glory He desires of me. No this is not an easy task… being human can cause me to be unconscious of being selfish and not leaning on Him 😦 when I greatly need Him the most. He created us to be glory to Him.
That is the true purpose of our lives – to bring God glory (Matthew 5:16). This life is not about me, and it is not about you either. It is all about God and telling others about Him through the lives we have been blessed to live.
~ Angela, You Are Loved, Chapter 5
We need to consciously take time to look back on (keep a journal maybe) how God has been faithful in the past to help us to trust Him for the present and future! Take time each day to thank Him for being for us, with us, and in control of all things.
Trusting as best I can,
