“Why We Struggle With Trusting God” Note by me.
–Originally just a comment; posted here for readers’ benefit and for God’s glory.–
We struggle with trusting God because, well, it’s natural, we’re still in our present bodies and all the imperfections and deficiencies that come with it.
Apostle Paul was very aware of the struggle taking place in each of us, the struggle of flesh against spirit, trust against doubt, pride against humility, hate against love; struggles against temptations, enemy attacks, and other things that we will encounter and experience and fight until the day we die.
We must daily die to ourselves,and daily be made alive to Christ; He’s our Sustainer, Healer, Master, Lord, Friend, Great Physician, sole source of strength, our very life and breath, our all in all, the one we must daily fix our eyes on, the one who can help us in our infirmities, He can help us obey, trust, grow, love, help, and do all we can’t without Him and His grace and love.
God’s the unchanging one when our circumstances change, when doubts come and feeling change, when friends leave and we may feel all alone, He’s the one who’ll never leave of forsake us.
God’s the one we need to turn to for all things, we have not the strength to get through everything that comes our way. To God be all the glory!
