Trust God With Everything?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
Tough areas to trust God:
Trust begins when we make God a priority, not just a passing thought.
Nothing causes doubt like a draught.
But after a while the brook dried up, for there was no rainfall anywhere in the land. 1 Kings 17:7 NLT
Then the Lord said to Elijah... 1 Kings 17:8 NLT
“Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have
instructed a widow there to feed you.” 1 Kings 17:9 NLT
So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, “Would you please bring me a little water in a cup?” 1 Kings 17:10 NLT
As she was going to get it, he called to her, “Bring me a bite of bread, too.” 1 Kings 17:11 NLT
But she said, “I swear by the Lord your God that I don’t have a single piece of bread in the house. And I have only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil in the bottom of the jug. I was just gathering a few sticks to cook this last meal, and then my son and I will die.”
1 Kings 17:12 NLT
But Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid! Go ahead and do just what you’ve said, but make a little bread for me first. Then use what’s left to prepare a meal for yourself and your son. 1 Kings 17:13 NLT
For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when the Lord sends rain and the crops grow again!” 1 Kings 17:14 NLT
So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days. 1 Kings 17:15 NLT
