Turbo change results from flagship behavior - Part III
Thirdly, trust in God is a quality decision. We must make a quality decision every day to trust, rely, and depend on God (Song. 8:5). This spiritual exercise is what the bible refers to as “your whole heart” which is practiced on a daily basis until it becomes a lifestyle, a part of you (Prov. 3:5-6). This is a daily journey; and while babies drink Enfamil (get miracles), adults have to milk the cow (walk by faith). Trusting God is not for the weak or faint hearted (Is. 40:31; 27:14). Many of us fail to understand what is already done and implied in scripture. It’s a given and done deal that God is faithful to his word (Heb. 13:8; Jam. 1:17; Eph. 1:3; Rms. 8:17; Rev. 1:5). So we don’t have to wonder, worry or waver about the outcome when he tells us to wait. Waiting does not imply or mean withholding. God is not keeping anything back from us (Ps. 84:11).
Remember, the devil deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden on this same issue (Gen. 3:4-5). We can also look at Samson’s life. His hair represented his strength. Strength represents our trust in God, King David knew this well because he was a worshiper and understood where the source of his strength came from – being in the presence of God (Ps. 16:11). This is the strength the devil seeks to take away from us, and he does so by stealing our time with God through the busyness of life or the cares of this life (Matt. 6:24-34; 13:7, 22). The devil went after Adam & Eve’s trust in God, who had their best intentions at heart. Then he pursued their eyesight, their ability to see in the spirit. Likewise, once Samson’s hair was cut, his strength was gone (sym. of trust). The Philistines gouged his eyes out (sym. the Light necessary to see God), and he was left blind; and sadly was carried away into bondage and a life of slavery. Unfortunately, this is how the enemy continues to capture us as well. (cont'd)
