Trust is a necessity in both human and spiritual relationships. We lean towards people who have our best interests at heart. Trust is simply the ability to rely on something or someone. God is our maker and our heavenly father in the same way that a child would put all their trust in their parents to guide them. That's why we, as Christians, should put our trust in God to guide us. There can be no relationship without trust. Trust Works hand and hand with faith, because we can't have faith in so

God is always working behind the scenes. God can be described as a movie director. You can never see in a real movie, but his presence is always felt. It is the movie director that brings a movie to life. Imagine watching a movie where you see the director keep shouting cut, repeat action. You will immediately get tired of the film. This is why they work behind the scenes, and this is how God works. Unlike a movie director, God doesn't come before us and Lord his desires over us. He can suggest

As much as rejection is a very frequent occurrence in life, we are quick to feel bad about it. Each time it happens to us almost forgetting that God can still work out good from any situation. I like to think of rejection as an opportunity to get access to something even better. Yes, it hurts it may look like we gave something all we had and still got rejected. However, if there's better which there always is, then the rejection keeps us open to receiving that better opportunity.

Life will knock you down and laugh at you. Life will hit you when you're trying to live for Jesus. Life is no respecter of persons. But that's when you say, "you know what, I'm getting up, I'm not going to quit. I'm not. I may get knocked down nine times, but I'm going to get up 10 times. I'm not going to quit." In the words of the great theologian Rocky Balboa, - and I quote, "it's not how hard you can hit that makes you a winner, but it's how hard you can get hit and get up and keep going".

As you build your faith, you block out the spirit of fear. Fear and faith do not mix, they are complete opposites. So, if you'll take just one thing away from my message today, let it be this.

Everyone loves to be comfortable, stress-free and happy. A unique sense of satisfaction comes when there are no challenges when there is peace and everything is working out smoothly. However, we all know that in life, peace and prosperity are not always the case. There are times when you will pass through hardship and diverse challenges before peace and prosperity arrive. This is a natural occurrence in life, both born-again Christians and non-believers.
