10 KEYS - THE POWER OF TRUST
LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF ISAIAH 26:4 (Amp)
"“Trust [confidently] in the Lord forever [He is your fortress, your shield, your banner],For the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages].”
1. Trust grows better in adversity The adversity is what God uses to build up the TRUST ! .Psalm 46:2(NIV)"Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,.”
2. Trust establishes the word in your spirit. It helps it to take root . See the parable of the sower .Mark 4:17 (NIV)"But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away."
3. Trust is what grows the word in your spirit . When you put your trust in the word , it grows ,just like physical food helps you to grow physically.you can't see it with your physical eyes , but this is what happens when you apply . Prov 3:5(NIV)"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;.” At times it looks like the enemy is winning , don't try to reason the outcome , TRUST HIM!
4. When trust enters into the soil of your heart , it becomes hard for Satan to steal it. Why? trust is a spirit. Jesus said in the book of John 6:63b" the words that I speak unto you , they are spirit and they are life"
5 .Revelation produces trust . Once you catch the Rhema behind the word , it refuels your trust in Him.Psalm 9:10(NIV)"Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.”
6. There is power in the word. your faith built on a platform of trust will activate the impossible when you simply believe it. Eph 3:20 (Amp)" Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,.” power is generated when trust is activated.
7. Trust does not disappoint. Why? The one whom you trust is the Maker of the heavens and Earth . The Boss of all Bosses. Jer32:27 (Net)""I am the LORD God of all humanity. Nothing is too hard for me.”
8. If you can see it , it will not be hard for you to trust Him.Can you see it ? Jer 1:11(Amp)"The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see the branch of an almond tree.” What you can see ,builds your trust .
9. Your knowledge of the word builds your trust in the word . So lack of knowledge means lack of trust . Prov. 24:5(Amp)"A wise man is strong and is better than a strong man,and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power;" is the strength (knowledge) that fuels the trust in Him.
