Why is it easier to obey God than to trust Him? Because obeying God makes sense to us. In most cases, His laws appear reasonable and wise, and even when we don’t want to obey them, we usually concede that they are good for us. But the circumstances we find ourselves in often defy explanation. Before long, we begin to doubt God’s concern for us or His control over our lives. We ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?” During such a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a thorough Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and in Trusting God he shares the fruit of that study. As you explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and even the details of your life, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts. This new edition replaces both Trusting God (paperback ISBN 9781600063053) and the study guide (paperback ISBN 9781600063060) by combining both resources into one volume!

You don’t have to understand God to trust him. “Just trust me.” Those are the words we often hear in movies just before something bad happens. And yet, we are told to trust God. In a culture where we tend to take control of our own lives, trusting God has become a religious platitude rather than a life-changing attitude. We say it, but do we really mean it? And what does trusting God really look like? Sharon, Mary, and Gwen—the Girlfriends in God ministry team—have been there. They’ve traveled the tough roads of life to discover the peace and power that comes from grabbing the hand of God and trusting his plan. The life stories they share bring laughter and sometimes tears, but always spiritual growth. Each of the 12-week sections concludes with a Bible study guide and journal page, inviting you to lock arms with Sharon, Mary, and Gwen and share with other women in a small group setting or to use individually in your own quiet time.
In her dynamic new devotional, international speaker Joyce Meyer provides you with powerful 'starting points' for every day of the year. Each day's devotion is filled with practical advice from Joyce along with life-changing promises from God's Word that you can quickly and easily apply in your own life. The world wants you to place your trust in your circumstances, your success, your talents, and the opinions of others. But God has called you to rise above the world, and put your full trust in Him - to believe and apply what He's promised more than anything else. Living this way won't just happen - you have to be intentional. But where do you begin? We all need help to make good choices, to battle worry, overcome anxiety, and keep a positive attitude. Using this devotional, readers will learn to grab hold of life this way, day by day, with trust in God.
Trusting Others, Trusting God is an investigation of the concepts of moral and religious trust. The question of why or how it is rational to trust anyone has been the typical focus of philosophers, with an underlying assumption that trust must be justified. In most cases, trust (even – or perhaps especially religious trust) is portrayed as irrational. Sheela Pawar argues that a grammatical investigation of the concept of trust can help rectify this mistreatment.
“And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.” Psalm 9:10 (NKJV) Is it possible to live a life without worry? Worry and stress have a way a sneaking into our lives when we’re not looking. Yet God invites us to wave goodbye to this unwelcome duo and learn to depend on Him in everything. As worry and stress disappear in our rear view mirror, we discover new things about God, life, and others that we never imagined. In this study, we’ll look at men and women who faced challenging situations and impossible odds but discovered the power of relying on God every step of the way. Whether it’s Noah leading a herd of wild and whimsical creatures on wooden boat (with two termites!), Abraham leaving everything that’s familiar to venture into the great unknown, or Ruth embarking on an unforgettable love story, we’re reminded that the same God who led, guided, and protected them, leads, guides, and protects us, too. Features: Twelve weeks of Bible study Questions for discussion Leader’s Guide included for leading your small group study

Why yet another book about forgiveness? Abundant literature, written from Christian and other spiritual perspectives, is available specifying why forgiving those who offend us results in such improved physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual health. What makes this book unique, however, is that it deals strictly with survivors of child abuse and the profound ways that they are affected for life without some type of intervention. Learning to forgive, healing from abuse, and trusting/finding intimacy with Father God are three processes that are difficult, if not impossible, for most survivors of child abuse to experience. The power inherent in forgiveness contributes enormously to healing for deep wounds and the realization of true intimacy with the One we are privileged to call Abba, Father. Many survivors' highly personal, deeply sensitive, and incredibly dramatic accounts of abuse suffered, their choices to forgive, their experiences of deep healing, and ultimately the fulfillment of lifelong desires for closeness with God are documented in Forgiving Others and Trusting God . . . Handbook for Survivors of Child Abuse. You will find these accounts both inspirational and unforgettable! Even if you never were victimized as a child, you will gain plenty of hands-on, practical tools to assist in your own journey from overcoming any emotional or spiritual obstacles and hindrances to forgiving others and trusting God.

Many times Christians excitedly receive a promise or vision from God. From that moment forward, they want to tell the whole world what God is going to do in and through them. It’s so exciting to have a promise from God. The Bible says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). But when God gives us a promise or vision, it takes time to see it fulfilled. Rarely is the vision for tomorrow or even the next year. It’s for a certain time set by God. He shows it to you early, but He still wants to prepare you for the journey ahead. Many Christians get discouraged during this process and walk away from God. But so many people in the Bible—like Abraham, Joseph, and David—had to go through years of preparation before they saw their visions fulfilled. They waited a long time, probably longer than most of us. Be encouraged and don’t let a thing called time destroy you before you even start. God is for you, and what He’s promised He will bring to pass.

Do you have a teenager or adult child whose difficulties seem to be preventing you from living your life? We are not responsible when they choose the wrong path. We are not responsible to carry them if they take drugs or commit crimes. Even when they have a disease such as mental illness, we cannot carry this load for them. Do you feel guilty as if you can’t do enough to help? Do you question what you didn’t do right or what you did wrong? Are you compelled to somehow make this right? You can be freed from this false belief and start living your life. God does not hold you responsible. Galatians 6:5 says, for each one should carry his own load. Taking on others’ responsibilities is not being a good person; it is enabling the person and preventing them from growing as a person. It is important to know what you are responsible for and what you are not. My son Bradley had paranoid schizophrenia. It was serious and I had to learn new ways to cope and help him.

After ten years of Brad in several apartments, group homes and the mental health complex, he passed – my son died due to his medication that ruined his heart. I stand only by the grace of God. In this book, I impart to you what has helped me.

Trusting God through the Storm, Putting Faith into Action, amidst Trials and Adversity reveals the personal, profound, and at times shocking details of a single mother of eight, Anastasie's life, as she learns faithfulness, obedience, perseverance, and commitment to God through the most travailing hardships that any wife, mother, and woman can encounter. Having suffered through divorce, homelessness, abuse, racial discrimination, and humiliation at every turn, Anastasie felt powerless, rejected, and at times, utterly abandoned by God as she struggled to keep herself afloat through some of life's greatest hardships as well as overcoming numerous adversities that would at times seem too much to bear. Through sheer maternal desperation, she fought and prayed to ensure the survival of her eight children whom she knew would need to thrive despite the lack that she could offer.

Trusting God through the Storms is a story of transformation, reclamation, and one of God's restorative power to a life beset by disappointments and brokenness.
