Trusting God … A Thought and a Prayer

“Let us trust our little selves with the Lord; and rest not, till by faith in the promised Holy Spirit and by incessant prayer we receive and be filled with it, like they were of old, in the ancient order of things.” (Barton W. Stone in the Christian Messenger in 1843)

Easier said than done God. I am trying to trust my little self with you but I am dying to walk by sight. Act in my life and my family’s life today. Grant your Holy Spirit so that I may discern, understand and do your will. A drop of mercy is mighty indeed and we simply covet a crumb from your table of grace …

    It is an amazing paradox that those of us in “church leadership” are trusted by man when we at times do not trust ourselves.

    Stone and Harding were such giants of audacious and brave prayer.

    You encourage all of us to kneel beside them, and you.

    Most of our life we spend as “armchair” quarterback when it comes to faith and prayer. Then…something happens and we struggle to even find the faith that prayer calls us to have.

    Just remember God isn’t bound by time. As we slowly ponder and absorb each excruciating second… He has already seen the glorious outcome. 🙂

    Man up.

    God gave you the tools for faith, which includes the ability to have faith in yourself.
