Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:8)
Last week we found out that God is Able to handle everything that we need Him to; nothing is impossible with Him. Since He wants to and can do far beyond our greatest dreams we should trust our lives to Him. At all times we can trust in God; we can pour our heart out to Him and no matter what it is between us and Him. We all have secrets, hidden sins or things we would tell to no one. We can take it to God because He already knows, we can run to Him for safety and we will not be disappointed with the outcome. Secrets are safe with Him because He has guidance for us to handle what needs to be dealt with. Today we will praise the Lord with the song Trust it All by North Point ft. Brett Stanfill. The link to this song is https://youtu.be/eMVcJIrcWlk or search for the song title and artist on YouTube. Every breath, every word we speak, every step and heart beat we should give to Jesus our Lord. Our whole life is in His hands so we can Trust it All to Him. All our dreams and all our plans we can trust them all to Him because only He knows what to do with them. The times in my life I have most trusted in God have come after some of the most difficult moments I have faced. At the end of 2007 I had to be hospitalized because of some chest congestion that messed up the gases in my blood. This was extremely life threatening but I had a dream about being in the hand of God and after a tough battle I rededicated my life to Him. In 2011 my brother Joe died but instead of blaming God I trusted Him even when I became ill from the grief and seemed to be following him to the grave. I grew so much in these two experiences that I am not the same as I used to be. Trusting God especially when it’s difficult is the best thing we can do because He will be our refuge.
Some trust in chariots and horses, but we trust in the Lord our God (Psalm 20:7). Horses and chariots don’t mean much to us so trusting in the Lord over them is easy but what are we trusting in? Are we trusting guns and security systems, money and jobs, doctors and healthy living, the government and military? None of these can do for us what the Lord has not already provided for us if we Trust it All to Him. We are like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God if we will forever trust in His unfailing love (Psalm 52:8). If we trust in the Lord we are established like Mount Zion; we cannot be shaken because we will endure forever in Him (Psalm 125:1). When the world around us is falling apart we can keep our composer if our trust is in the Lord because we know it will be okay no matter what. We must learn to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding; if we will submit our ways to Him our path will be made strait (Proverbs 3:5-6). Walking a straight path is easy but when we are on a path that He’s not leading us down it is easy to get lost. It is like having a random address in a place we’ve never been and trying to find it without directions, a map or GPS. It is almost impossible to find that place on our own without a guide. God has a map for our lives and He will be our guide if we will Trust it All to Him. We may be filled with joy and peace as we trust in the Lord so we can overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13). There is great joy to be had when we trust in the God of hope. Those who are rich in this world must not be high-minded, we should not trust in anything but in the living God, who richly gives us all things to enjoy (1 Timothy 6:17). If we Trust it All to the Lord we will be blessed with all things to enjoy and have peace because we hoped in Him.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
