Simply Trust Jesus

Dear Friends,

Every time I have a busy week with lots of commitments, I get a stressed out and wonder how I’m going to get it all done—and do a good job at everything I committed to do. The Lord reminded me this morning to give it all to Him and to trust Him—completely. That means to have no doubt and to have complete confidence in Him and that He will help me get through whatever I have going on in my life at the time.

Today,  I read a devotional from my book, Devotions for Working Women, that reminded me to trust and have faith in Jesus so I want to share it with you too. Enjoy!

Have Complete Confidence and Faith in Jesus

# 310

Mark 4:40 (NLT)

And he asked them, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still not have faith in me?”

 Jesus and His disciples were in their boat crossing a lake when a fierce storm arose. The disciples were afraid they were going to drown and went to wake up Jesus who they found peacefully sleeping in the back of the boat. Then Jesus asked His disciples the question above. It is insulting to Jesus when we have Him in our hearts, yet don’t have faith in Him to deliver us from the storms.

When we accept Jesus into our hearts as our Lord and Savior, we are telling Him we believe in His ability to save us from everything—including going to hell. How can we believe He saved us from eternal damnation in hell, but we don’t have enough faith to believe He can get us through the storms in our lives?

When Jesus was inside the boat with His disciples and a storm developed all around them, He was sleeping in peace. How could He do that? Simply because He had complete confidence in His Father, and He knew that no matter what was going on in the world around Him, the Father would take care of Him. This is a revelation we must appropriate in our hearts.

If you accepted Jesus, then He is in you now and all that He is and represents is inside of you, in your spirit. Having Him in your life means you have His power, His anointing, peace, love, joy, and everything else God wants you to have to be successful in Him.

Meditate on this today and know that Jesus is in you. Have complete faith, trust, and confidence in Him. Know that no matter what you are going through in your life, Jesus is in control, and He will deliver you.
