Psalms 37:39-40

"But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.
And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him."
Psalms 37:39-40

Here is another scripture telling us how important it is to trust God.  One of the things that God needs to do in this life is to teach us to believe... in things that the world would have us doubt.  So, it really makes sense to me... from an educational perspective... that God would reward us for trusting in him.  Believing in God is just part of "thinking outside the box" ... to put it in management lingo. :)  And probably the very first part. :)  We have to eventually learn to see as God sees... have to learn to do what God does... incredible, amazing things... ideas... beyond my power to express (but maybe someday...) :)  anyway, isn't the first step trusting that God can teach us those things?  That God is more powerful than the mundane challenges of our lives...?  That he can do what he says he will do?  So, today... whatever trouble is weighing on your mind the most... take it to God.  Explain it to him, ask him to teach you how to deal with it.  Ask him to help you overcome something... help you overcome your personal addictions... help you lose weight... help you learn the motivation to stick with a project that you want to do... help you make a decision that is impossibly hard to make.  And he'll help you.  Since his goal is to teach us how to do things ourselves, he probably won't just zap it away... but hey, you never know.  Some things need to be zapped. :)
