4 Things That Happen When You Trust God Completely

Trust. It's not easy to do, is it? Especially if you've been disappointed time after time after time. Let me show you 4 things that happen when you trust God completely with every area of your life.

A man just got married and was returning home with his wife. They were crossing a lake in a boat, when suddenly a storm kicked up. The man was a warrior, he was brave and not bothered by the storm. But his wife was very much afraid because it seemed almost hopeless.

The boat was small and the storm was really huge, and any moment, it looked like they were going to go under. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening.

His wife was trembling and she said, “Aren't you afraid ? This may be our last moment of life! It doesn’t seem that we will be able to reach the other shore. If we don't see a miracle take place, we're going to die.

The man laughed and took the sword out of its sheath. The woman was even more puzzled. What he was doing? Then he brought the naked sword close to the woman’s neck, so close it was almost touching her neck.

He said,  "Are you afraid ?”

She started to laugh and said, "Why should I be afraid ?, If the sword is in your hands, why I should be afraid? I know you love me."

He put the sword back and said, "And just like that, I know God Loves me, and the storm is in His hands."

When you trust God, you're going to experience:

1. New levels of peace and joy. You'll begin to experience the magnificent, abundant life Jesus paid for you to have. You'll no longer be bogged down by fear or worry. Trust puts an end to crazy frantic days because you know Jesus is going to come through for you.

And God's peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7 AMP 

2. Greater Victories. Trusting God to fight your battles guarantees you an ultimate win. Every time. Though, if you'd rather fight off your enemies on your own, go for it, but you won't be victorious every time. So why not trust God to fight your battles? When you do, you're victories will become greater and bigger as you trust him more.

Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass. Psalm 37:5 AMP

3. New opportunities. Each new day will bring a new opportunity to trust in his strength. And I must warn you - with each new opportunity a challenge will come your way. But don't worry, if you are trusting in God 100 percent, you're going to be just fine!

And Jesus said, [You say to Me], If You can do anything? [Why,] all things can be (are possible) to him who believes! Mark 9:23 AMP

4. A deeper relationship with God. Trust deepens any relationship. Friendship, marriage, family - no matter what the type of relationship, if trust is there, the relationship grows. Trust God and you'll be drawn closer to him. It's a central principle for all relationships. Trust and you'll be tighter with God.

The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27

Today, I want to encourage you to make up your mind that you are going to believe God is for you and put that faith into action by trusting him.
You'll experience new levels of peace and joy, greater victories, new opportunities, and a deeper relationship with God. You're about to see these 4 things happen when you trust God completely with every area of your life.
