Trust God Before You Trust Your Feelings | Take That Leap Of Faith (Inspirational & Motivational)

friends I'd like to give you a few things to think about today when was the last time you walked into a doctor's office and demanded to see their credentials before they could treat you have you ever inquired about your doctor's education their training how many years of experience they have no you walk in and you begin to tell them what's wrong without so much as questioning whether they were the top of their class or they barely had the grades and scrapped through medical school or how about your car whether you've purchased a brand new car or used vehicle have you ever questioned the mechanic have you ever asked for a demonstration of their skill and asked to see their credentials or better yet after you've had some work done on your car have you ever inspected it have you ever opened up the hood of your car to see whether everything was done correctly and all parts used were authentic well I'll guess that you've never done that well how about your son or daughter's teacher or university professor have you ever asked to see their credentials have you ever questioned their expertise I sure haven't if they sound like they know what they're talking about then I tend to believe them and you see that's the point we often trust people without question we often trust things without question but dear friends the best doctors in the world make mistakes they get things wrong they misdiagnose they make errors of judgment and they sometimes come to a place where there's absolutely nothing they can do [Music] a car can be assembled by the most skilled mechanics in the world and still it will break down that car will have problems it will at some point have a flat tire or a warning light will come on to tell you that it needs to be fixed equally the greatest Minds on Earth the best teachers in the world don't know everything they can't explain everything that you need to know in this life even after devoting large parts of their lives to studying their knowledge is still Limited however Saints there is one who makes no mistakes there is one whose hands are so skilled that whatever he touches is made perfect there is one who is all-knowing one who has unmatched wisdom god Jehovah our trust should be placed in him and him alone Jeremiah 32 verse 17 says ah Sovereign Lord you have made the heavens and the Earth by your great power and outstretched arm nothing is too hard for you indeed nothing is too difficult for our God nothing is out of his reach there is nothing that is beyond him you see our God holds time in his hands he's Eternal and righteous and there is none like him and so I encourage you not to lean on your own understanding but submit all your ways to the Lord because God Is Bigger he's bigger than every complication you can face he's bigger than every mountain in front of you now the Bible says in Psalms 34 Verse 17 the righteous cry out and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles [Music] isn't that amazing that the Bible actually says that the righteous cry out and the Lord hears but it doesn't stop there the Lord delivers them out of all their troubles so what happens to the unrighteous when they cry out who hears them who delivers them out of all their troubles from this passage of scripture in Psalm 34 we should all be encouraged to pursue righteousness because when the day comes when it's your turn to cry out if you have been pursuing righteousness then the Lord will hear you and deliver you God the father has given his people the license to call upon him when Troubles of Life come notice how I said his people God's people those who pursue righteousness and it's not to say that you're perfect but it's to say that your desire has nothing to do with the world and everything to do with Jesus Christ the righteous cry out and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles there is a condition for you to be heard by God that condition is righteousness are you a righteous man are you a righteous woman and I mean righteousness according to the word of God not the self-righteousness which the Bible describes in Isaiah 64 verse 6 saying all of us have become like one who is unclean and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags we all shrivel up like a leaf and like the wind our sins sweep us away this is self-righteousness being described here this is where you are righteous in your own eyes not according to God's word but according to the standards you've set this isn't the type of righteousness we want or need as Believers we ought to chase the type of righteousness that pleases God and rid ourselves from any trace of Pride arrogance or self-righteousness we are to chase after the righteousness of God that qualifies you and me to get God's attention second Corinthians 5 verse 21. for our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin so that in him we might become the righteousness of God don't miss how the Bible says in him so that in Christ we might become the righteousness of God are you in Christ are you in him I asked these questions because there are people who are so in distress and so bothered saying why does God never answer my prayers well once again Psalms 34 17 says the righteous cry out and the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles and then second Corinthians 5 verse 21 says for our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin so that in him we might become the righteousness of God so we've established a criteria for God to hear your cry it's righteousness and we've discovered the source of righteousness which is Jesus Christ none of us can be righteous unless we are in Jesus Christ unless we are submitted to him we can never achieve righteousness unless we are in love with Jesus unless we are sold out for him we can never achieve righteousness [Music]
