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!

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
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.

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.

We must each deal with the pain of the loss and separation from a person dearly loved. This short book provides scriptures and actual experiences to confirm that Christians can trust in God for comfort and support in the bereavement process.
Most followers of Jesus would agree that he is all-loving, all-powerful, and able to use ordinary people in extraordinary ways. They also believe that he desires to reveal his love and glory to billions of people all over the world. So why are so few of us trusting God for a bigger Kingdom impact? Gregg Hinzelman's "naive" teenage dream of impacting the world for Jesus was shattered during a one-week trip to Haiti. However, an understanding and application of Biblical truths over the next several years allowed this youthful dream to come to fruition with astonishing results. In What Are You Trusting God For?, Gregg explores eight practical principles from Scripture that can allow every believer to have God-honouring impact that is "exceeding, abundantly beyond all we can ask or imagine."

From Best-Selling Author R. T. Kendall What if I told you the "new normal" is that nothing will be normal again? As recent events have unfolded, not only America but the entire world has been brought to the precipice of the most challenging moments of our lifetimes. But while these times seem unprecedented and unchartered to us, they are not to God. Much like He said to Joshua and the children of Israel standing on the edge of the Promised Land, God now says to us: "You have never been this way before" (Josh.3:4). God's word is tender, challenging, and scary. God knows where we've been and where we are going. As we cope with extraordinary new outbreaks of disease, racism, and cultural upheaval, we have been forced to recognize that we are not prepared for this. Nobody is. Yet there is hope. In this timely message, trusted theologian R. T. Kendall helps you navigate the way forward by exploring how God led His people in the past. Along the way, he answers questions such as: Where is God in all this? What do Christians have to offer the rest of the world during these times? Did the devil cause these things? Did God cause them? If God allowed these things to happen, then why? Just like today's Christians, the people of great faith listed in Hebrews 11 had to grapple with things that had not been encountered before. They needed unprecedented faith to accomplish God's purpose in unprecedented times. Join R. T. Kendall on this journey to understand what God is saying to His people in this critical hour, the ways He has already equipped you to face these uncertainties, and how to know His plan for your future. This book will help you understand what God is saying to us during this time of uncertainty and change.
