by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Why Are We Scared?
Why are we so scared to trust God? Why are we so scared to trust Him with our lives when He is the God of the universe? Why do we think we can make better decisions than God when He is Omniscient (all-wise and all-knowing)? I’m not condemning you; I am guilty, too.
I wonder why many couples think that God could not provide for another baby in their family? Is it because we trust in our selves rather than our Omnipotent (all-powerful) God?
How many times have we prayed these lines in the Lord’s Prayer?“Give us this day our daily bread” (Matthew 6:11). Do you notice that Jesus didn’t teach us to pray, “Give us this day our monthly bread,” or even our “weekly bread”? God wants us to learn to trust Him for today, knowing that He will be faithful again tomorrow.
God only sent enough manna for one day to the Israelites in the wilderness. If they couldn’t trust God would provide for the next day and gathered extra just in case, it “bred worms, and stank”(Exodus 16:20)! That’s what God thinks about our lack of trust in Him.
