"Some trust in and boast of chariots and some horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God." — Psalm 20:7 (AMP) Have you considered where your trust is placed? From time to time, I like to examine who or what I trust. I wonder if I am putting an unhealthy trust in my friends, expecting too much from them. Or, do I trust in myself, leaning too much on my education, successes and possessions? In these troubling times when the economy is shaky and so many things are uncertain, we need to examine where our trust is. Our trust belongs in God and his ability to guide and direct us and to help us handle problems and overcome them. Having the faith for him to do what we can't do ourselves is a true test of our trust. We all go through tests of Annettee Budzban Insfriratims our faith. The devil uses them as times for temptation to entice us to get upset and act in ungodly ways. God uses them to test our spiritual strength and faithfulness to him. Trust carries with it attributes that we can use as a measuring stick. If we can identify these characters or markers, they can help us discern to what degree we are using our faith. According to Scriptures, when trust exists, it doesn't get anxious and distraught trying to figure everything out. It stays stable, level-headed and strong in the face of adversity, turning the worries and cares over to the Lord while continuing to perform normal daily activities. It leans on God to take control over the things we have no power to change and prays for wisdom to make the changes we need. Trust is a factor of faith. So if we remain faithful to pray, stand on the promises God gives us in the Bible and \vait on God's timing, these factors can help us keep our emotions stable and our hearts faithful in the midst of troubling times. Learning to trust God is a process. When storm winds blow, will we keep our faith in him? I know I still need to grow, but I'm not giving up. How about you? When we exchange our worry and fear, God gives us peace and joy instead. Sounds like a great exchange to me. Take the challenge to lean on God and place your trust in him. • Annettee Budzban's new book "Spend a Moment with God" can be ordered through bookstores or online bookstores, or Ijy calling the toll free number (877) 289-2665.
