The Road through Calvary strengthens faith.

The Road through Calvary strengthens faith.

As Jesus was in the tomb it all seemed lost. People didn’t realize that the story wasn’t over.
Sometimes we won’t see, comprehend or understand what God is doing. We can be so overwhelmed by the situation we’re in and forget that God is still in control and that He hasn’t stepped away, even though it may seem like it.

Read Isaiah 26:3 (http://bit.ly/29bviS2)

Be encouraged that even in the silence and the stillness God is still at work.
As we continue to trust Him, He strengthens our faith and gives us peace.

The Road through Calvary calls us to Trust

The Road through Calvary calls us to Trust

Have you ever been in a difficult situation?
Who hasn’t right. Failed an exam or had to give someone bad news?
We have all been in bad and uncomfortable situations. I find that in those situations, trusting God is more helpful than knowing how everything is going to turn out.

Read Luke 23:46-47 (http://bit.ly/2X7ZNwO)

In this passage of scripture Jesus is on the cross and He surrenders His Spirit to God. Despite hanging on the cross, He still trusts God. This has everything to do with who God is. As Jesus trusted God, we are called to trust Him too.

Too many Christians live with a mantra that, if they were honest, sounds a little something like this: ‘Trust God, but have a backup plan’. We call it wisdom, but often it shows a lack of trust in God or the community of Christians we engage with.

Proverbs 3:5,6 calls us to a much riskier outlook – read it here:http://bit.ly/1WqdDUt

We still need to be wise in how we go about this but as we learn to hear God’s Spirit leading us so we can trust God more.

Which plan, OR backup plan, do you need to trust God with?

Read Romans 10:5-9 (http://bit.ly/2GxFANf)

Today it can be so hard to trust things – tv adverts, politicians and even what people say. Promises get made and broken without a second thought. However with God this is different, He is faithful to His promises. Verse 9 tells us that if we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord we will be saved.

Knowing that Jesus is Lord can be hard, but we must remember it and trust Him in the toughest situations. Real faith is trusting God when it is the hardest. How will you trust that Jesus is Lord in 2019?
