I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion The Trust Factor—Respect

Joshua 21:45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.

We don’t trust or respect God. We don’t trust He is good, that He has our ultimate best in His plans, that He actually cares enough to answer our prayers.

We don’t trust or we’d make different decisions. Often, we are determined to do things our way, in our time and on our schedule.

We consult and listen to those we respect and trust. The truth of how much we truly honor God is in time spent with Him, time in His Word, time seeking His will, listening when He speaks, and following His principles and guidance.

When was the last time you asked…and waited for an answer. When did I?

It is a matter of respect, of trust–and choice.
Help me, Jesus, not just claim to follow You, but actually do so. Amen.
