God created you. He fashioned every fiber of your being. He understands you better than you could ever hope to understand yourself. He knows every detail of your past and has a clear view of your future.
God can see the consequences of decisions made today, even years into the future. We, on the other hand, are anchored in the present moment. As a result, our choices are based on limited insight and are influenced by what we believe will bring immediate happiness. We assume that what makes us happy today will certainly be good for us tomorrow. Unfortunately that is not always the case.
Many times we live as though we believe that anything good we experience will be the result of our own efforts. But God wants us to rely on Him and to realize that He is the source of all good blessings that come into our life.
God wants the best for you and He wants you to trust Him for it. He has it all figured out. He has a glorious future planned for you. But it requires that you turn over control of your life to Him. He wants you to trust Him with everything. He wants you to have complete faith in Him.
“What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.” (Hebrews 11:1, NLT).
Do you have faith in God? Do you trust Him? Trust is developed by cultivating a relationship with God. It requires knowledge and understanding of God’s capabilities and reliability.
The kind of faith God wants you to have in Him doesn’t happen overnight. It is developed over time as you discover His magnificent attributes and watch Him orchestrate the events of your life. Your trust in God will grow as you walk with Him every day and discover the depth of His incredible love for you. Then, as you get to know Him better your beliefs will be grounded in biblical reality.

- Be empowered by the Holy Spirit
God has designed you for “supernatural living,” which is dependent on Him for wisdom, power and resources, available to you only through the filling of the Holy Spirit. You can only live the Christian life successfully by depending on the Holy Spirit to transform you. [read more]
- Live life God’s way
Are you living life God’s way, or your own way? Do you know how God defines “successful living”? Are you letting God have His way in your life? God changes people from the inside out. It all begins with heart change that leads to personal transformation, which makes it possible to have healthy relationships. [read more]
