Get Over Your Fear of Trusting God

3. God's Plans Are Always Best
Once you have accepted the previous basic truths, they have to lead us to this third and most important conclusion: God's plans for us are always superior to any other plans. If you believe God is God and He cares for you, then you cannot logically deny this truth: God is smarter than you are at running your life. Therefore, you can trust Him. Not only can you trust Him, but it is the logical thing to do. Nothing else makes any sense.
  Just look at what the Scriptures tell us about God's intentions toward us:

        "No good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless." (Ps. 84:11b)

        "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his            power that is at work within us." (Eph. 3:20)

        "Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak             and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing." (Ps. 34:9-10)

       "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,  "plans to prosper you and not to harm          you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jer. 29:11)

The irrefutable, logical conclusion is clear. There simply can be no middle ground. If we believe with our hearts, not just our heads, that God is God, eternal, all-powerful, holy and perfect, and that this very God cares for us more than any earthly being could ever care, and that His plans for our lives are far better than anything we could maneuver on our own, we have to get over our fear of trusting Him. He can be nothing but trustworthy. He will lead us into the best paths. To fail to relinquish the control of our lives to Him would be foolhardy and disastrous.

It is arrogance on our part if we refuse to trust God. To fail to trust Him at every turn in your life is a grave and serious sin. It is pride at its very worst.

Whatever the fear that is keeping you from trusting God, it is unfounded and unreasonable, and it is a trick of Satan to keep you from the joy and peace of a trusting, yielding life. Let go of those fears today, confess your sin of unbelief, get into God's Word daily and get to know God better, and you, too, can get over your fear of trusting God.
