Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Lord, I want to trust you but I am scared I am going to get hurt. If I can handle things myself and control everything around me, I feel safer and more productive. Many times keeping you far away but not to far in case I need protection is what pleases my flesh. But in my spirit I want you close and I want to know the power of your love. I am learning in my walk with Christ that there is no fear in love. How can I grow in relationship with God if I all I expect is fear and judgment. In Jesus I have forgiveness and grace, access to his spiritual riches and glory forever amen. I must expect love and mercy from God, even in a world that many times does not reflect that. God is good and he is love. I must be perfected in his love before I go ahead and trust in God. Meaning I need sufficient understanding of Gods love reflected in the Gospel so that I can have a foundation to trust in. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God remains in us, and His love is perfected in us. Everyday is an opportunity to know God more and to love my neighbor more. The love of Christ in us will grow our faith into a solid rock. So that when I face adversity and trial I will not try to handle things myself. I will not keep God far away from my problems. No, I will trust in the relationship with Jesus I have been building on everyday through faith for victory. I can trust God because I know Him. His perfect love has perfected me, and I will expect goodness from the Lord. Even though like Job, He may slay me allowing painful circumstances I cannot control. I trust He is in control because He loves me, the Cross shows me so. Meditate 1 John 4:15
