God Has You In His Hand, But Do You Trust Him?

It takes great faith to relax and trust.

A posture of trust will allow God to be what you need Him to be.

As a believer, you are safe in God’s hands. He promises to protect you and provide all that you need. All that you have to do is trust Him. I happen to know that this is not as easy as it sounds. The Lord showed me that I may realized that I am in His hand, but my posture is one standing with hands on hips and looking around to confirm that He will do that He said He would. It is trust, but only just.

God showed me that He wants me to relax–literally to recline, and stop trying to figure out how He will do what He said He would. It’s a very different picture of trust. When you lay back in His hand, you don’t have a great view of what’s around you so you just have to believe that it’s all going to work out. That takes all the pressure off and allows you to enjoy being unstressed.

Stop and consider what your posture is. Are you standing in a defiant position, unsure if God will come through, or are you reclined and fully trusting in the God of your provision? The change from standing to reclining is a huge leap of faith, but that’s exactly what God is waiting for.
