Confident trust // 05-03-20

“So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.” Hebrews‬ ‭10:35-36‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This Sunday at Tredworth we are starting a new series, ‘Relentless trust.’ It can be so tempting to throw in the towel, to stop paddling, to stop caring, when circumstances conspire against me! But God has called me to a life of faith and mission, to be a great commission disciple! Faith only gets to grow through the tough times as I choose to trust God anyway. Being on mission will mean facing obstacles and opposition, it comes with the territory! We’re going to be learning from the life of Joseph, a man who relentlessly trusted God, maintained his integrity and gave his best and his all in serving, no matter what happened to him or where he found himself, and he certainly lived to see God’s promise fulfilled in his life! Lord, help me not to forget the bigger picture and to relentlessly trust you 🙏🏼
