For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. Genesis 18:19 King James Version
Does the title of this post ‘concern’ you? If so ask yourself why? The reason is because for years we have been taught to trust God but you have probably rarely if ever heard someone say that God trust you. But He does. Why? Because He knows you. He knows all the mistakes you are going to make along the way and He still chose you. He knows how you are going to fall sometimes and fail and He still chose you. Why? Because He knows something. Have you ever seen the commercial about Prego spaghetti sauce? One of the most popular ones has someone asking whether it has fresh tomatoes and the person answers, “It’s in there!!” Then the person ask whether the sauce contains authentic garlic and they answer “It’s in there!”. You’re probably like what does this have to do with God. When it comes to you God knows Prego too. He knows that “HE’S IN THERE!!!”. Inside of you, God the Father is in there in the person of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. HE IS IN THERE. If you are born again HE’S IN THERE!! And you can’t get Him out.
God the Father made man in His image. Get a quarter and look at it. You see that president on the face of the coin. That image was made as a part of the coin and was stamped into it. You can’t get it out and you can’t get it off. You can throw it in the street, watch cars and trucks run over it for hours and go pick it up and it may be scratched up but the image is still there. And no matter what you do to it it is still a quarter or a penny or a nickel. It being scratched up does not change what it is. Poppa knows that you are His and that He is yours and He trust what He put in you and on you. The reason people don’t understand this is because of religion. They confuse God and the devil. The devil makes people do things. God ask people to do things. God did not come to Jesus and say, “Look you are going to go down and die for all people, I’m the boss around here and you do what I say!!!” No, no, no The Father is not like that. People are and the devil is. Jesus agreed to that assignment. Read the Bible, The Father asked and Jesus said if you prepare me a body I will go and fulfill this mission. The Word and the Father were and always are in perfect agreement. Jesus always refers to The Father as sending Him on mission. Jesus is referred as The Lamb that was slain. A lamb goes willingly to the slaughter no resistance. The point is that Jesus is in you and YOU, THE SPIRIT YOU ONLY DESIRES TO DO THE WILL OF YOUR FATHER. How do I know that? Because you are the righteousness of God in Christ and look what The Word of God says about the righteous.
The desire of the righteous is only good Proverbs 11:23 King James Version
Your desire, the real you, is ONLY GOOD!!! And not only is your desire good but look what else Proverbs says about the desire of the righteous.
……but the desire of the righteous shall be granted. Proverbs 10:24 King James Version
This is in line with Jesus word in Mark 11:24.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24 King James Version
If you know the story of Abraham you know that Abraham lied, was in fear about his wife and then tried to fulfill God’s place through the flesh. Kinda sounds like us. But ultimately Abraham fulfilled the plan of God and he is the father of our faith even with all his mistakes and missteps. Let that give you hope. God says he KNOWS Abraham and if God knows Abraham He also knows you. He trust what He’s put in you to get the job done. So yes you should trust God but you should also know that God trust you. Jesus could have anytime said, “No, I don’t want to go through with this and be crucified.” But He said nevertheless not My will but Thy will be done. This is the same thing you did when you gave your life to Christ. You set in motion things that have changed your life forever and God loves you just as much as He loves Jesus so He would trust you no less than Jesus because He is depending on the Jesus in you (not the you in you) to get the job done.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
