Sweet Trust

Through providing for our needs, God transforms our minds to trust Him in every way.  When God provides for me today, He is saying "you can trust me for tomorrow."  Because of Jesus, who gave himself for the life of the world, there is no limit to how much we can trust Him.  We can trust Him forever. 

In Christ we have an "unambiguous sense of safety, a lasting home."  (Henry Nouwen)

Will you let us pray for you?  Will you allow us the privilege of calling out to the God of the universe on your behalf?  Our Lord longs for us to return to Him, humbled and saved.

O how sweet to trust in Jesus!  Just to take Him at His Word.  Just to rest upon his promise.  Just to say "thus saith the Lord."

"Come to me," says Jesus, "All you who labor and are heavy laden.  Come to me and I will give you rest."  (Matthew 11)

Our Lord longs to provide for your every need, setting you free to follow Him in all your life.
