Being blessed is all about having wholehearted trust in God, being patient in every situation, and having unshakeable hope in God.
When God took the human flesh and dwelt among men, who is Jesus, has shown an exact life that must be lived by us on this earth.
Jesus lived a perfect human life on this planet by displaying trust in God, patience in every situation, and having hope in God so that we can follow Him and live the life that God has designed for us.
Trusting on God mean free from all fear, worry and anxiety
Have you experienced fear, worry, and anxiety, or have seen people are suffering from these? Most probably your answer is yes. But do you know why these fear, worry, and anxiety trouble people? It is simply because they have no trust in God the creator.
Trusting God is all about feeling comfortable and relaxed in the midst of all tough times.
People who do not know God the creator, are like children without parents. They have to think about all their needs and solve their own problems because they have no parents to take care of or to solve the problem for them.
But for children who have parents, the scenario is completely different. Their parents care for them, provide for their needs, and as a result children need not worry about their needs.
In the same manner, when we will know our creator the Lord God Almighty as our spiritual father, we will be without worry by trusting in him completely.
we must also know that trusting on what should go along with a repentant life. If we are not repentant and continue with our sinful life, then trusting God doesn’t make any sense.
Jesus began his preaching by saying that repent for the kingdom of God is near. he also said come to me all who are weary and burdened and rest.
If we repent of our sin and trust in God, we can live an amazingly relaxed and worry-free life.
Patience in every situation
If you will observe the life of Jesus, you will find that He was living a life of patience. Jesus himself went through tough times like being harassed and tortured by the Pharisees, Roman soldiers but He never lost his patience. He remains cool and calm in every tough situation.
This shows that we can live the same life of patience if we will really repent of all our sins and love God by hating sin. It does not matter how tough a situation you are going through but you can surely be patient if you allow the Holy Spirit to dwell in you.
Hope In God alone
Where do your hopes lie? Do you hope on your money, property, wealthy family or something else of this world or on living God who has created you. Life becomes completely mess and disturbed when people start to fix their hope on the things of this world rather than the one who has created them.
A blessed life begins with fixing your hope only God alone. People will change, things in this world will perish, but the living God will be the same forever. What a foolish life one can live by hopping on the earthly objects or people whose life is too uncertain. Do you see people living with hopelessness? What does it remind you of, they need Jesus. Do you suffer from hopelessness then let me tell you you really need Jesus the savior.
