In God I Trust
A friend from work sent me an email about a very rich man. Someone who knew him, saw that he always picked up pennies anytime he saw them. When asked why he would pick up such an insignificant coin, when he already has so much, he responded, "See, it says, 'In God We Trust' on it. Every time I see a penny, I am reminded to trust the Lord and that I should thank God for even the tiniest of blessings. So, I pick it up and say a silent prayer each time."
Recently, I've been doing the same thing. You know what? I've been finding pennies everywhere! (And no... I'm not talking about the coins I see in my drawer at work.) Every time, I pick it up, remember to trust in God and say a prayer to thank Him for what He's given me.
Here are some of the reasons why I trust my Lord.
1. He knows my name. (Isaiah 43:1)
I am not kidding. The Almighty God knows my name and loves me.
2. Everywhere I go, He is with me. (Psalms 129:7 and Matthew 28:20)
In fact, He even goes before me. I have nothing to fear.
3. The Lord will fight for me. (Exodus 14:14)
This is a good one when the world seems as if it is coming down on me. I just need to be still and trust God, and let Him do the fighting. God always wins.
4. He created me in His image. (Genesis 1:27)
Even on my "fat days" I am beautiful, because God made me in His image. I will remember this and thank Him for it.
5. He has a plan for me. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Sure, I am a college student who has switched majors a half a zillion times. I'm not really sure of my plan for myself, but I know that God has a plan. I just need to prayerfully listen and follow His plan.
Why do you trust God?
