”In one’s heart a person plans their course, but the Lord determines their steps.” - Proverbs 16:9 We can have trust issues with God revolves around His direction in our lives…the “where”. Sometimes our prayer can become…”God, where do I go from here?” In the journey of life, there will be times when we will wonder where God will take our life in a month, a year, or over the course of many years. When was there a time (or times) where your prayers revolved around God’s direction in your life? How did those moments feel when it came to trusting God? Key Verses: Genesis 12:1-9, Proverbs 16:9, Hebrews 11:8-10, Numbers 23:19

Trust Issues - Part 2

There are areas where trust is easy for us to give, but there are also those areas in our lives where we have trust issues. Maybe we’ve been hurt or betrayed by others. Maybe we have a tough time believing what others tell us, or we have a tendency to keep people at a distance. Maybe you are having a tough time trusting God in this season. In the Old Testament, there is a powerful story of a man named Joseph who had to wait on God’s timing. His story is told in Genesis 37-50. As the story unfolds, we become aware that it was 22 years (17 years old to 39 years old) from when Joseph was sold into slavery from his brothers until he is re-united with them. There are a lot of struggles and painful things Joseph had to go through during those 22 years…but the bottom line is that all of Jewish history hinges on Joseph being faithful to God all these years of waiting.

”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” - Proverbs 3:5-6 We are so excited to kick off a brand new collection of sermons called TRUST ISSUES. It's all about learning to trust God even when the circumstances of our lives are challenging. Even when God doesn't make sense. Through this season, we want to get better. We want to forge a confidence in God that will last a lifetime. Maybe you are having a tough time trusting God in this season. No matter what, the bottom line is that trust is needed in every relationship—especially when it comes to God. Why? How we trust God can either develop or stunt our spiritual growth. We can either be paralyzed with fear, or we can use this season as an opportunity to learn what God is doing in our lives. God wants you to trust Him, and He knows that you will come out of this season better if you do. Key Verses: Proverbs 3:5-6, Exodus 16, Luke 11:3, Joshua 1:9
