Trusting God Part 3 - Convinced

Sharon struggled with her thoughts. She knew her God to be a faithful God and yet in this one thing she was having such a hard time believing He would help her. Her doubting heart bothered her.

God gently took her thoughts back to the many times His faithfulness had been evident in her life. Yes, she knew He had a track record of holding her through the dark but this time it seemed to last for so long.

Again God spoke to her heart…His Word gripped her…

“I know whom I have believed and am convinced that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto him for that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12

Fresh faith flooded her heart as Sharon realized she did know who she was believing in. Her God had been faithful to her in the past. He had never let her down. She could be absolutely convinced, even in the dark, that God was able to keep what she had committed to Him. His timing would be right. Even though at times He seemed to linger longer than she cared for, His track record in her life proved He never came too late. Why should she doubt Him now?

God will build a track record in your life as you trust Him with each detail and each blind corner. Be convinced today that He will keep what you have committed to Him. His timing will be just right. Allow His peace to hold you as you wait. Allow Him to build His track record in your life!

prayer & reflection

Father God,
Today when I want to fret and worry please remind me of how You have worked in my life in the past. Remind me of Your faithfulness to me in previous times and situations. I want to trust You and to build the track record of Your faithfulness in my life. I want to know You in a way that allows me to say “I know whom I believe in and am convinced He is able”. Thank You that You are able to keep what I have committed to You. I declare Your faithfulness and Your ability to work in my life and in my circumstance. I look to You with fresh faith today! Thank you Father!
In Jesus’ strong name I pray, Amen.
