So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! – Hebrews 10:35 (NLT)
A few months ago, I was eating at a restaurant. I finished eating and was getting ready to leave and realized I couldn’t find my phone anywhere. I went back to the table where I was sitting, looked to see if it fell on the floor or was on my chair. My phone was nowhere to be found. After thinking about it for a minute I realized what must have happened. I must have accidentally thrown my phone in the trash while I was throwing away all the papers and wrappers from eating my food. As gross as looking through the trash was, I knew it was the only way to get my phone back. So I began digging and sure enough a few layers deep in the trash can sat my phone.
It can be really easy to throw something away by mistake, like your phone. In our walk with God, we’ve got to be careful not to throw away our trust in God. It can be easy when something unexpected happens in life to want to question God or not trust Him.
So how do we keep from throwing away our confidence in God? It comes by reminding yourself daily of how good God is. Remember the times that God has come through for you. Remind yourself of the fact that regardless of how hopeless things might seem right now that God cannot leave or forsake you.
Don’t make the mistake of losing hope and trust in God. God will not let you down. Continue to put your hope and trust in God and in time you’ll look back and see how God moved mightily on your behalf.
