He is constant in our lives!
Building trust and confidence in God first requires me to know Him on a personal level. I have to get to know Him at His word, get to know His voice, get to know His faithfulness, love, grace, and mercy toward me and others.
That has been a journey that I am still very much on. But, I am making strides to be along that path better. My human nature and how I am build with my temperments tend to rely on logic and then emotion engages and it can either be good or bad depending on whether my logic is from my carnal mind or from direct revelation from God.
To be carnally minded is death as to why it can lead to bad. Now if it is based off of true revelation from God then it can be good. But I have to capture those things and find out which is which.
So, the more I inplant in my soul (mind,will and emotions) the truth from the word of God, the more growth I can have in faith and being confident in God and taking Him at His word.
The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Deuteronomy 31:8 NASB
God went ahead of us in this day and age as we live post crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus to prepare us the way to have that close relationship with Him. He then sent the comforter in the Holy Spirit to be with us and show His faithfulness to us.
So when fear tries to come and grip me I have to pull from the spirit of God for His word told me He didn’t give me a spirit of fear, but one of power, love and a sound mind. Believe me more often then not fear in some form tries to grip and paralyze me. It comes in depression, worry, anxiety, stress, out right fear of something.
It has been in the teaching I am getting at Reformation Developmental Center that is Pastored by Juanita Gibbs that has helped me begin to have an awareness of those things so I can combat them and trust that God is with me.
This has been a journey and a process to lean of God and not my understanding and trust what He is doing in my life. To bring about maturity and completeness in Him.
