Do we REALLY trust God?
“…They waged war against the Hagrites, Jetur, Naphish, and Nodab. And when they prevailed over them [literally, “they were helped against them,”], the Hagrites and all who were with them were given into their hands, for they cried out to God in the battle, and he granted their urgent plea because they trusted in him.” 1 Chronicles 5:19-20
What I find both encouraging and convicting here is that God responds to His people when they are willing to put all of their hope in Him, not holding back or playing it safe. These people don’t have a backup plan. They aren’t hedging their bets. They cry out to God in desperation because they know He is truly their only hope.
God answers when we go “all in”.
The question then, is simply this. In the areas of my life where I need God the most, do I believe God can and will surround me with His help, and am I willing to trust Him completely?
