Trusting God

kenya

As much as we say we love God, it is hard for some of us to trust him. If we are accustomed to hearing his voice, we may sometimes doubt what he says. Especially, when he says something that we do not understand. However, we must go an attempt to do what he says. We will soon find out if what he told us to do is the right thing.

One of the most confusing aspects of our Christianity is our gifting and how God calls us. Many people are under the assumption that they are called to do God’s work when we feel compassion toward a cause. Indeed, most of us feel compassion toward causes in the world. There is so much suffering that is going on in the world and we want to help in some way. That is why people give to charity. However, we cannot confuse this with ministry. This is merely following the mandate to give to others who are less fortunate.

We must rely on the spiritual gifts that God has given us. When we are saved, we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit distributes the gifts among us.

Therefore, it is our duty to find out what gift the Holy Spirit has given us. It may surprise you what Gift you have. God often give us a gift that we had not considered and there is more of an opportunity to work heartily and joyfully for him. He will never give us a gift that we cannot handle. There is no need to fear that we will get something that we will not want or cannot do. God ordained the work fo us eons ago. Psalm 139:16 says, “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
