Trusting Regardless

One definition of the word “trust” is to have a “confident expectation” or “to have confidence in.
I have been thinking a lot lately about what it means to truly believe that God is there and taking into consideration what His children need.  It has been so amazing to be on this living by faith journey for all these years,  and the fact that I was even given this amazing opportunity to live by faith is unbelievably shocking when I take the time to consider it.
There have been so many occasions where I have had such a weak faith in God about how He would work things out,  only to find out that He was waiting to show me that He was indeed there and would take care of whatever it was that was causing me to doubt Him.
Jesus asks us to trust Him.  We will never have to TRY to trust Him if we play the game that the system has plotted out for us. For example, if you work in a job where you earn a paycheck on a regular basis, on a fundamental level you are trusting in your JOB to take care of you and your needs.  I am sure  many professing “believers” can claim that while they work for money, they still ultimately trust in God to take care of them.  If the “believer” objects and says that it is God who gave them the job in order to take care of their needs,  I would ask them this:  “What is the difference between YOU getting that job, and the atheist next to you who never prayed to get the same position?”
Jesus tells us to trust Him, and He said that in relation to us working for HIM, by sharing his message with the world on a day to day basis. (Matthew 28:19-20).
How can we say we are working for and trusting Him while we are working at McDonald’s,  for instance? Are we there to “make disciples of all nations…” and “teaching them to obey whatever I taught you…”?  If we are really honest, we can only admit it is the paycheck that keeps us coming back to a particular job,  and not some sort of on the job “witness” that we claim is the reason we work there.
We will never know the beautiful life of miraculous provision UNLESS we choose to let go of ALL visible means of financial support and trust in the One who has already given us a job.  (Matthew 28:19-20; Luke 10:2).  When we begin to trust God REGARDLESS of our external circumstances,  we develop a sense of child-like wonder at the ability of our loving Heavenly Father to take care of us in ways we would never have imagined otherwise.

Welcome to the intersection of economics & and love! We are Christians who are disgusted with the money system worship of the Churches. We call it "Churchianity" and nothing could be further from what Jesus Christ taught than what is commonly preached in most churches around the world. His profoundly revolutionary and unrivaled teachings about love, if practiced, open our eyes to the matrix of greed that he came to free us from.

    I can honestly say that this is very true. But i feel that God has honestly opened the doors to my job. Because as disable as i am. Having a Hernia and a moved lower back disk that is herniated too and having a weak left let due to a pinched nerve. There hasn’t been a month that i have been without work. Including the fact that i have worked at 3 different places this past year. And when the doors close at one job, the doors open at another job. But i completely agree with your essay. God bless.
