IF YOU HAVE NO CONFLICT, THERE WOULD BE NO NEED TO TRUST IN GOD.
Knowing you need God because you have conflicts is the first step to know you trust God.
The conflicts are real, the battles you encounter are brutal, and the enemies that come after you like a lion that is greedy of his prey are undeniable. These troublesome times were not in your plan. You need God.
Knowing God hears you when you pray is the second step to know you trust God.
In the midst of the conflict, you focus on God, not on the enemy. You speak directly to God asking for help, looking up to God to bow down His ear to hear your call, and KNOWING HE HEARS YOU!
Knowing God protects you and hides you under His wing is the third step to know you trust God.
You surely need protection from your enemies. You can know you trust God when you look to Him to protect you. When you believe He keeps you as the apple of the eye and hides you under His wings.
Knowing God fights your enemies for you with HIS WORD is the fourth step to know you trust God.
Enemies want to destroy you, but God’s word cuts down the enemies. Use God’s Word effectively. Read it, memorize it, and apply it. Know you trust God by using His Word as a sword against your enemies.
Knowing God satisfies you with His presence is the fifth step to know you trust God.
You receive strength to soar above the battles of life and the enemies that threaten. You are fulfilled with the presence of God and look only for the face of God in the midst of your conflicts.
Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
from those who rise up against them. Psalm 18:7
Read and meditate on Psalm 17 for further confidence in God’s deliverance from the enemy.
