How Do You Know if You’re Really Trusting God?

So many times we pray about a situation and then fight hard not to worry about the outcome. Is this the way it’s supposed to be? No, absolutely not!

Romans 15:13 (KJV) 13  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Notice that there’s joy and peace in believing. What are we to be believing? God! When we’re believing that God is Who He is and that He says what He means and means what He says, we can put our trust in that and have the joy and peace it brings.

Our Heavenly father has so provided everything we’ll ever need to be victorious on planet earth and we see that in Ephesians.

Ephesians 1:3 (KJV) 3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

If He’s already blessed us with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places, why do we have trouble trusting Him to take care of us? We shouldn’t! Let’s continue with Romans 15.

Romans 15:13 (KJV) 13  Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

The key to knowing that we’re in faith and trusting God for the outcome of our prayer is that we have joy and joy is a fruit our of our re-born spirit. This is not happiness because happiness is dependent upon physical circumstances; it’s a five physical senses issue.

Joy on the other hand is a heart issue emanating from our spirit. It is truly supernatural because it’s not dependent on what is going on around us. That’s when you know you’re trusting God. We’re not to let the circumstance dictate how we respond.

Those who are in fear, doubt, and worry are not trusting God no matter how many scriptures they’re standing on. There are many forms of unbelief but all are an attack on the integrity of God – tempting you to not trust God.
Let’s get back to believing God is Who He says He is and that He says what He means and means what He says. If we truly believe that, then our trust level will ring the bell!

Brothers and sisters, we need to get a revelation that God’s Word is His will and what He says is what He means because He loves us with an everlasting love. His blessings and promises were given so we could walk in them, live a life worth living, and be the envy of every unsaved person. This should cause them to want what we have and to serve our Father God. Praise the Lord of glory!

Nehemiah 8:10b (KJV) 10  …  for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
1 John 1:3-4 (KJV) 3  That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.
4  And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) 7  For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Romans 5:5 (KJV) 5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
