Trust the Lord

John 14.1 Don’t let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, and trust also in me.   NLT

John chapters 14-17 are so rich and full.  They are my favorites.  John 14.1 always comes at the right time.  I have to remind myself that when my heart is troubled,   I do not trust the Lord with that particular circumstance.  When my heart is troubled,  the majority of the time I want to control the situation and not give it to the Lord.  I am afraid that if I let God make the choice it will not be the choice I would make.  What do we call it when we think we can do a better job than the Lord? 

It is my opinion that if you are miserable right now about something then you are not giving it to the Lord and trusting Him.  Is this not what this life is about when you are a follower of Jesus?  Trusting? You are not going to ask if you do not trust.  If you trust then you will have Joy. 

So the questions today are,   do you trust Jesus in the situation that you are in?  Or do you want to be in control? If you want to be in control,

 How is that working for you so far?

John 16:23-24
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.NKJV
