Trusting in Jesus

Posted November 18, 2020

For many of us we’re very committed in certain aspects of our lives.  Maybe you are a die-hard Bears fan! Maybe you’re devoted to your family or you’re dedicated at work. How is your faith commitment to your Lord Jesus?  What’s holding you back from letting go and letting Jesus rule in your life?
I know that one of the things that holds me back in my faith life is my desire to be in control.  I want to be in charge of what’s happening in my life.  To relinquish control to someone else would be a sign of weakness right? To let someone else be in charge is not always easy.  As a matter of fact, in our sinful nature it’s impossible to let God be in charge.  So what can we do?
We can pray.  Prayer has great power!  Jesus said, “Whatever you ask in my name I will do it!” (John  14:13)  As we seek God’s will and ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we can grow in our trust of the love of Jesus and truly believe in the power of God’s word! Ask God to let you take a step of faith.
Prayerfully ask that you would let Jesus be more in charge of your life.  Ask God to enable you to be more intentional in your prayer life.  Ask that the Holy Spirit would guide you to trust in the power of God’s word and to receive the blessings of Jesus’ promises!
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”  (Philippians 4:6,7,13)
Trusting in Jesus,
Pastor Maske
