I’m Sure

It’s a Wednesday morning and it seems that things are uncertain. No more than normal but the difference is all of the bad news a person has to fight through in order to just simply trust. I have talked at length about how trusting is choice and I’m going to elaborate a little more today.

Just like Pastor Byron said a few weeks ago pastors are no different from everyone else when it comes to making choices such as giving financially to God’s work. The same holds true when making choices on who or what to trust. I don’t know about you guys but I’m tired and weary. I’m tired of the election, I’m tired of our economy, I’m tired of the war, I’m just tired of all of the bad news. With that fatigue comes the temptation to look for something immediately to grab hold of to trust. I, just like all of you want something tangible to latch on to. Whether it’s my money, a politician, my health or even a loved one, these things are all temporary and can evaporate from you in an instant. Knowing this or coming to realize this causes consternation and concern unless, unless, I make the difficult choice to trust God.

The choice to trust God is more difficult than you might think. Just because I’m a pastor doesn’t make it any easier than anyone else. What makes this choice more difficult is the fact that God is an intangible in a world where possesions are everything. We are trained to want more things and expect more from people that affect our lives whether that be a politician or even a loved one. So to trust our future to a God who we cannot see or hear or touch is something that doesn’t come natural. Let’s be honest, it’s stinkin’ hard.

So whether you’re a pastor, businessman, powerful, weak, rich or poor, no matter who you are or your station in life it’s a difficult but necessary choice to make. In the difficult times in which we live we really have no other choice to achieve peace in our lives than to trust in Christ. In fact I’m reminded of an awesome hymn (I know you can’t believe I’m actually going to quote a hymn. 🙂 ) that fits the situation we find ourselves in right now.

“In times like these we need a Savior. In times like these we need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock. That Rock is Jesus, He’s the One. That Rock is Jesus the only One. Be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds an grips the Solid Rock”

So today, again I make the choice to trust God! He’s my anchor and my solid rock and yes, I’m very sure!

Well said, Darrell!

It is amazing how exhausted I am … it seems like everyone is exhausted. The easy choice would be to allow the exhaustion to overtake you!

The hard choice is to have faith and trust in Chirst!
