Almost everyone will love to live an excellent life, but sometimes we get to experience different situations that make life to be a horrible place. But whatever situation we find ourselves we need to have trust in God.
To build trust in God may sound easy, but when you experience the unusual aspect of life, whereby all hope seems to be gone, will you still trust God in that situation? Or think of other alternatives?
The benefits of trusting God is more than human imagination. Few people claim to trust God and when their trust is tested, they do not give up. For instance, Job in the Bible. He was a wealthy man who believed in God. When his trust and faith were tested, he lost everything in life yet he trusted God so much. And later he regained more than anyone could have imagined. No matter the situation put all your trust in God for guidance and direction.
However, here in this article is ten benefits on how trusting God can transform your life,
1. It creates a life of dependency.
Everyone has the freedom to choose what’s best in life but we were not created to be independent of God. Instead, we are created to live a life of dependency. trusting and living by His words. When you trust in God, He will not leave you to be a wandering man trying to figure things, especially when you are finding it difficult to overcome a challenging situation.
2. Trust invites the ultimate helper.
The holy spirit is the ultimate helper in any situation. When you trust God, the gift of the holy spirit will locate you and be your helper to conquer every barrier on your path.
Jesus was so generous to give us a precious gift which is the Holy Spirit, for only those who believe and trust in Him. In John 14:26, ” But the helper, the holy spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” Jesus knew we need a helper because of the ups and downs of the world. But only when we trust in God, the ultimate helper will be with us and effectively guide us.
3. Trust builds the spirit of adherence.
God loves obedience. As a believer, when you accept God’s instructions and commandments, your life will go smoothly in accordance with His plan. But how do you get that spirit of adherence? It is only when you truly trust God and believe in His plan that’s when you can have the spirit of adherence.
When God tells you to do something without your understanding, still trust him just like Abraham. And when you live an obedient life, blessings will be unlimited.
4.Trust gives you spiritual Eyes to see things differently
The way God sees things is totally different from the way we see things. To see things just like God, first of all, we have to trust God, then ask Him for eyes to see things the way He does.
According to Isaiah 55:8-9, “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts” says the Lord.” And my ways are far beyond anything g you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts.”
God knows every chapter of our life, therefore we have to trust him and his timing. And we can only understand his timing when we have the spiritual eyes to see how things are happening.
5. Trust improves your personality
To live a worthy life that pleases God, we need to trust Him. When we wholeheartedly trust God, we will receive a life full of good fruits (see Colossians 1:10). These good fruits will always attract abundance of blessings to our lives when God sees how much we rely upon and trust him in everything we do in life.
6.Trust boosts faith.
It is only when you trust God and see the benefits, your faith will increase. There are times whereby we look forward to some opportunities that we believe it is unachievable, but when we trust God, He makes the whole situation exceed our expectations and this will increase our faith in Him. Also, you will always be eager to pray and ask for his guidance to do immeasurably things in his unique ways.
7. Trust builds a life of contagious faith
The presence of God's trust in one’s life can produce contagious faith. Contagious faith is a faith that makes you feel so anxious to tell others about God and wants others to enjoy that same kind of faith themselves because they see your joy and happiness.
In the bible, when the Samaritan woman saw that Jesus was the messiah, she ran immediately into the village to tell others about him (See John 4:28). And in return, many Samaritans believed in Him because of her (see John 4:39). Through your trust in Him, you can tell others about Jesus and the reward they can get when they truly trust Him.
8. Assurance of safety
God cares so much for those who truly trust His ways. According to Proverbs 29:25 “ trusting the lord means safety.” You can encounter any situation without getting freaked out because He cares about you.
During the time of Noah, the earth was filled with lots of astrocity and evil. God decided to flood the earth but because Noah had so much trust in God, He directed noah and his family to build an ark to secure them during the flood. When you trust Him, He will ensure you get a life and chance that you deserve.
9. Trust leads to eternity.
As believers, the place where God dwells is our permanent home, but it is only those that trust in Him who will claim His eternal reward. When you trust human, disappointment may likely occur. But when you trust God, he will never disappoint and He will give a beneficial reward for your endurance.
According to 1 Peter 1:8 -9, “Through you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glories joy. For you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your soul.” Salvation is the goal of every Christian. Life on earth might not be easy but when you focus your mindset to make the kingdom, trust the Lord, follow his teachings and commandment, you will have a seat waiting in heaven.
10.Trust helps you peacefully dwell with him
Sometimes, you can be bothered about unusual situations due to different reasons. And these perhaps won’t let you have that rest of mind you seek. But when you surrender all and trust God, He will transform your life into a peaceful one and relieve your heart of any heavy burden to give that perfect peace you seek.
To be very honest, trusting someone can be very challenging. But trusting God is entirely a different feeling. Everything we do on earth, determines our next journey of life. The world is full of different evils and to excel, trusting God is very important. Your current situation might be rough but remember how Jesus sacrificed His life for you to be with him in the end.
Brethren, trusting Him today, and receiving all His benefits is the greatest decision anyone can follow while on earth.
