“I trust you, I trust you, I trust you…”
That was the prophetic word spoken to us by a dear friend several months ago when she was releasing God’s word over our home and ministry. It struck me. In the midst of many other wonderful promises and blessings, God said He trusted us! Why would He say that? What does it mean?
As I pondered this later, I realized it was an unexpected affirmation of our decision to be faithful….no matter what. Though we certainly haven’t always hit the mark, God seemed to say that we had established some sort of track record with Him…and heaven noted it. My heart was deeply impacted by this. Where I have always sought to say I trust HIM, He now says He trusts ME. Wow.
But this wasn’t just an affirmation. It was an invitation, as well. I felt the pull on my spirit as if God were suggesting our partnership was going to another level. Because of the deep trust formed, anything was now possible. It was an incredible pronouncement from the throne that stirred within me even greater anticipation and expectation.
In Ezekiel 22:30, God says “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.” Could it be that God is not merely looking for people to pray, but people who have a track record to actually change things in prayer? Our seemingly unnoticed acts of obedience, faithfulness to His Word, and pursuit of holiness is never hidden from the Lord. He sees our witness and our ways and records those He can trust to move mountains.
I have a sense that there are many more of you out there whom the Lord would say the same thing – “I trust you!” Because of your consistent walk and fruitful prayers, He is inviting you to consider the possibilities. Your track record has been noted and He is issuing an invitation for the greater things (John 1:50).
At the end of our journey, we hope to hear Him say “Well done.” Until then, perhaps the highest reward is to hear Him say, “I trust you.”
Father, I pray that I might be one of whom you could say, “I trust you.” May my life and witness be such that you would entrust me with faith to move mountains and the favor to extend great blessing to those around me. May my daily walk reflect Christ to the fullest. May my relationships reflect the unity of the Godhead. May my prayers bear the fruit of faithful obedience. May the future bring great hope and expectation to believe for impossible things because we have partnered in this journey. To You be all the glory and honor, forever and ever. Amen.
