Do we trust in God?
February 21, 2013 11:50pm CST
If we genuinely trusted in our maker,we would never kill each other or be resentful to each others short comings.We argue that we stay alive because of our own strength.We claim that with our will power,we succeed,make profit and get cured. We claim with our hard-work we build a home,raise our children and conquer our problems.When everything goes well we say it is our hard work and achievement.We coin phrases like God helps those who help themselves.We say for courtesy sake that we trust in God.In actual we always think ourself as our destiny makers.We are an ungrateful lot who boast about our strength,wealth and intelligence to others, forgetting the fact that in his abundant mercy we are enjoying all these.If we trust in god we will forgive others more,be compassionate to the needy and the lonely.So when we care for others needs more than ours,we trust in god rather than anything.This is a difficult task? Don't you think so?The outlook and behaviour of the universe says so.

Difficult maybe but maybe not. Trusting God is not deliberately praising Him in public or anything always through trusting other people as God's representation of His love. Willingness to serve and not expecting in return will be the hardest one since people literally and for practical reasons don't act not unless there's something in return always playing it safe well that's hard. Acceptance of our own flaws to be able to serve and not judge the others is the best practice and not counting how much helped done, doing even small act of deed to a stranger is a perfect good example or to lighten up someone's day and giving hope to hopeless ones gives fruitful meaning in life and all of us are called to do so whatever our religion and belief.

Personally I myself don't know that God is really something or really God is present, but when I look at the creatures , the beauty and the natural activities of this planet I feel like here is really something and because of that today we are seeing such wonders. Apart from this our life is ours If I say I believe in God then I would say He have given us everything we need so from the moment we breath and the moment we will die is everything depends on us, our each and every activity mean and effect our life.

Definitely.... There is no question of disbelieve of God at any cost. We all should keep trust in god and God all time. All over the world we are experiencing god's presence in all the ways. God has given all we need. We should give respect Him always. If we pray for him we get a joy of wonder! We are same for him.... But still i have one strong desire to see him directly.... Id it possible for me in future?....

I am reproducing a story of Leo Tolstoy's as an answer for your wish.Once Simon the cobbler, on a cold night was reading his bible before going to bed.He just wished to meet god in person.That night in his dream,he heard God telling him that he will visit him tomorrow.He got up early,and made everything ready,and sat waiting for The Maker.As he sat waiting,he saw an old woman and a boy fighting on the street.He went to them asked for the cause of the fight.The old woman complained that he had stolen an apple from the basket, for which the boy replied that he had done so out of hunger.He paid for the apple and made peace among them.He again started to sit and wait for God.Then he saw a young women with a child standing,shivering in the cold outside his cottage,he invited her inside his cottage and provided her with hot soup and clothe to cover her and her baby.She thanked him and left.At night he was still waiting for God,but after late in the night, he decided to read the bible and go to bed after some time. Again he dreamt,this time he asked his Maker sadly why he hadn't visited him as promised?God answered ,I came to you twice, and you welcomed me with food and clothing and the scenes of yesterday passed before him.That is how we can see God.So best of luck for your wish.

We must trust and believe in God and i strongly feel that there is some mysterious force controlling all our day to day activities and we are all moving according to that force.God is bigger than the biggest (so big the universe is within Him).God is subtler than the smallest thing a human mind could conceive.God resides in the heart of every living being.God is the supreme creator of the universe.he Vedas state in scores of scriptural verses that everything is God. That Divinity is one without a second, beyond all forms, names and qualities. That divinity is an existence that is eternally imperishable and indivisible. Everything is one with God in its essential nature, including you as a soul. There is only one field of absolute Being where all divisions and separations merge into one existence.

trusting God doesn't mean you're not human anymore. It's normal to hate, to curse and to boast etc etc etc because we're human. But because you trust in God, you realize that its wrong, you repent and because of God's mercy you are able to change. Still there are times you forget, its human nature to sin, but our God is a loving and merciful God, he reminds us that its wrong and forgive us, help us to be better. Its hard yes, but by God's grace we can do it.

I know that I trust in god, as I wouldn't be where i am if I didn't. Sure, i struggle like others do, as i know that trusting and believing in God, isn't going to keep us from struggling. Trust in God hlps us to go to him whith all our problems, and we can pray to him every day. I pray to him every morning before I read the bible, as it draws me closer to him. I am nothing or would have nothing without trusting in god. Take care, and may God bless you.

I trust God. God gave me two hands so that I csn do things. God gave me a brain so I could use it. God gave me a heart so I could feel emotions. What I do with these things however is the big question. If I said I have never gotten angry, so angry in fact that I felt like hitting, striking or worse yet hurting someone else, if I said anything else I would be a lier and I don't want to be a lier. God help us all for if I ever let these terrible thoughts grow in me it would not be pretty. Maybe we can work together, God and me to resolve these problems instead. Yours sincerely, red head with a very bad temper

Really Nice Point you have picked. Is it eally true that "In God We Trust". If we believe and have faith in GOD then we don't have to face Problem's like you mention. Thier is a weak point in us that we say we do trust in GOD but Our believe's are not strong enough. I do say I Trust in GOD but practically I'm also weak.
