Focus on Knowing You can Truly Trust God!

I've been writing about where our most important focus should be, shared Psalm 86 and focused the month of June on depending on God and putting ourselves in His hands. This month my focus is on crying to God for help because I know I can call on Him and I'm confident He will answer! Today I want to think about how God answers, why we can be confident He will answer and how this confidence changes our lives! 

As we finish July, let's take a moment to look at Psalm 86:4-7 again, - "I count on you from morning to night. Give your servant a happy life; I put myself in your hands! You're well-known as good and forgiving, bighearted to all who ask for help. Pay attention, God, to my prayer; bend down and listen to my cry for help. Every time I'm in trouble I call on you, confident that you'll answer." (the Message)

Think for a moment, do you count on God from morning to night? Do you look to God to find a "happy life"? Do you put yourself in God's hands? Do you know God as "good and forgiving, bighearthed to all who ask for help" and do you ask God for help? Do you believe God will pay attention to your prayer and listen to your cries for help? Do you call on God when you are in trouble and are you confident He will answer? 

The most important thing for us is for us to focus on growing closer to God so we can know and walk with Him. He wants us to grow closer to Him! He wants us to know and walk with Him! He wants us to be able to answer "yes" to all the questions I just asked! These questions all boil down to knowing and fully believing we can trust God!

As you finish this month, please make this your prayer . . . "Dear God I pray today You will help me know I can count on You from morning to night and know I can put myself in Your merciful hands! Please help me know with confidence You pay attention to my prayers and listen to my cries for help.Please give me the confidence You will answer! Thank You, amen!"
