Trusting God - St. George
Deuteronomy 4:15-16 …watch yourselves very carefully, so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape…
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I TRUST ANYTHING ELSE MORE THAN GOD?
- I am going to be DISAPPOINTED.
Jeremiah 10:14 …those who make idols are disillusioned, because the gods they make are false and lifeless. (TEV)
- I am going to be DOMINATED.
1 Corinthians 12:2 …when you were pagans, you were led astray to the dumb idols… (NASB77)
WHY DON'T I TRUST GOD MORE?
Psalms 9:10 Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
WHY SHOULD I TRUST GOD COMPLETELY?
- Because he always tells the TRUTH.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
- Because he LOVES me.
1 John 4:10, 16 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love.
- Because he's in CONTROL.
Romans 8:28 (NLT) And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
- Because God will HELP me.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
