Man will trust man before he trust God. One of the reasons we don’t trust God is because we want to know the answer before we say yes to Him. We feel, if we say yes to God, we are saying yes to his will, and we’re giving up our control, but most importantly, we feel we may not like what God has to offer us.
We’re so comfortable with being comfortable, it makes us so afraid of risk and the unknown. Being afraid of fear and not trying, is worst than being afraid of fear, and trying. When you do try in fear, you’ve conquered your fear.
Know that God has your best interest at heart. You don’t have to know the answer first, to know that he wants to give you his best. Trust him with all your heart, even if you’re afraid. Be patient and wait upon Him. Don’t quit on God, cause He won’t quit on you. He will bless you just because you did.
