18/09/11 What are you listening too? 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 LOVE ALWAYS TRUSTS

Hello and God Bless you. Hope you have been well. 

God is a good God, nothing bad could ever come from Him.

What have you been listening to this week? Have you been listening to the bad report? Or have you been listening to your circumstances that are screaming out things are bad!. God word says LOVE ALWAYS TRUSTS in the latter part of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8…. When we are in Christ we too are to trust. Are we just to trust anything or anybody. No!

We are to trust in the one who is and always will be faithful Jesus Christ. We are to trust in Gods word. 

If anyone is going through a harsh time right now Gods word will give you the answer.. It is up to you to speak it out of your mouth and believe on it ( trusting) even if you don’t see change straight away. This is Faith in Gods promises. This is TRUST….. All Gods promises are given to the born again spirit filled believer in Christ. The Answer is Jesus Christ. He is the one who can supernaturally change your circumstance around just like that! He is the one who will comfort you when you received the bad report and no one can help you not even your family or doctors. Jesus is the one who will help you when all you seem to be around is badness yet inside you know this isn’t right and you want out! Jesus is the answer when there seems to be no way out.

Psalm 112:7 “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord. “

Jesus is the answer even if your life is just fine. Jesus is the answer full stop and He is coming back very soon. Will you be with him, have faith, trust and confidence in him or do you disbelieve in Him? Do you trust that He came to save you from the grips of darkness or do you trust in what the world says.. That he doesn’t exist, its just stories… or so what if he did I know better I don’t need him. Do you trust in yourself more than you trust in the Living God? So many people put their confidence and trust in either themselves, people and circumstances only to find out sooner or later that the very things you have trusted in has let you down. Sometimes big time! Jesus will never ever let you down. Why? Because that is not his nature… His nature is LOVE. But He is more than that He actually is LOVE.

And in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 it says Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

This is the New International Version we have studied. But Lets take a look at the New King James Version because it explains things a bit better:

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

This week we will look at “LOVE ALWAYS TRUSTS

Lets break down what Trust means in the English dictionary:

1. firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something:

As Christians, when you became a Christian you had to believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and He is part of the trinity Father Son and Holy Ghost. You had to believe if you are re born that as the bible says in John 3:16 “ God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son that who so ever shall believe on Him shall not perish but have everlasting LIFE (eternal life)”

That is a firm belief in Jesus, what He came here for and what you attain if you believe on HIM… As a Christian you believed in Him that He is reliable, He is the Truth, He has the ability. You have trust in HIM. Jesus. You have Trusted in his word.
In Jesus you can trust but not just in who he is, but what He did as seen by eyes witnesses and recorded through time but also in what He still does today supernaturally. He has the biggest following of people trusting in Him more than any other religion or group still to this day. Why? Because He is real, He can be trusted. He is reliable and if He said you can do something you can. If he said you can have something then you can. His word is full of mighty and precious promises. So what do you have your trust in?

As parents we are in positions of trust to make sure the child has a good up bringing, is safe, healthy. loved and cared for. Jesus is in a position of trust over all of us.. God knew He was the only one who could defeat satan and gain back authority from the dark side. Jesus wants to take care of us, help us grow, protect us, to make us successful. He wants to share mighty and precious things with us. Secrets of heaven, Things this world knows nothing about. Precious Jewels and revelations. He wants to share his LOVE with you, but not just so that you can feel his love, much deeper than that So can see His love being evident in your life and of those who are yours.

 He wants to show you that trusting in the things of this world will not satisfy you and instead will take you away from Him and closer to the dark one. Jesus wants to show you that in Him you can do many things, things you wouldn’t even dream you could do. You could do them why? Because He said so and His ability is in you if you are born again. It bypasses yours and He can work through you. 

Why does Jesus want to work through you? To help other people who are lost. Hurting and going to Hell. Jesus came and paid the price once and for all… ALL means ALL people not just some. It’s a case of who will take His hand and let him enter your heart or who will close off thinking they know best and one day be told “The Kingdom of Heaven has been near to you” but you let it pass you by. Jesus is entrusted with responsibility to love and help us. ALWAYS.

This world and the way it behaves doesn’t know how to trust. You have a legally binding agreement for virtually everything theses days! Why? Because man and his word have been broken over and over again…there is no trust in man. The type of trust you have in a legally binding agreement can still be breached and still is being breached regardless. There is no absolute confidence in that either. This is not the type of trust Gods word means.. When he says “love always trusts“.. That is absolute 100% confidence in…. When God talks about trust.. He means no matter what without wavering.. One hundred percent type of Trust without wavering, breaking, changing your mind or becoming weary. 

A trust that says even if my body is sick and not working the way it should. I am going to trust God and what his word says that Jesus came to heal and you can receive your healing from any illness through trusting in this. Gods type of trust is when your bank account is empty and you have bills that need meeting and no way of paying them.. Trust is this… Trusting in What Gods promises are regarding finances without wavering. Not looking at the situation… not looking at the fact that you have no money… looking and trusting in what is yours. The promises that God has shared in his word for you; The promises Jesus shared and enabled for you to have.

Psalms 71:5 “For You are my hope; O Lord God, You are my trust from my youth and the source of my confidence”

“Love Always Trusts

Love = God/Jesus Love = Gods nature inside of us when we are born again

Always = Forever no matter what

Trusts = Relies, cleaves to, depends, believes in, has faith in, confidence in :

Jesus Christ, who is the word of God made flesh and dwelt amongst us. John 1
Trust in Gods word.

Proverbs 16:20 He who deals wisely and heeds [God's] word and counsel shall find good, and whoever leans on, trusts in, and is confident in the Lord--happy, blessed, and fortunate is he“.
LOVE ( you who are of God if born again) ALWAYS TRUSTS”. Don’t waiver if you are experiences set backs.. Don’t buckle under pressure, Don’t give up when you are almost there. Reach out to Him and put your trust in Him, Our precious wonderful Jesus, the one who will never let you down. I guarantee you do that expect supernatural encounters to occur, Expect miracles to take place. Expect the impossible to be made possible.
Trusting in Jesus is a crucial thing to do in this day and age. Time is short and soon all will have to stand before the white throne of God and declare whether you accepted or rejected Jesus.
Question is who have you been listening too? Who have you put your trust in?

Are you ready for the truth?

God Loves you, Jesus died for you. Take His hand and experience His love and power.
