Two things I have learned that have helped my faith.
Two things I have learned that have helped me grow in my faith.
1. If you come to the end of your rope... grease that sucker and let go... it is there you will meet God as you are completely in His Hands.
2. Trusting God is like trying to float... the more you try to float, the more you sink... yet, as you relax and let the water support you, you begin to float. Once you depend on God to float you is when you truly trust God.
3. Bonus: God is God and you are not. You are His creation flaws and all. God is not surprised at your flaws... He is very aware at who you are. He is more aware of who you are that YOU are. God has not called you to be perfect... in fact the verse in Matthew 5:48 actually should not be "be perfect" but "be mature" or "be full of age"... God calls us to maturity not perfection. God is perfect and you are not... and once you accept that, you will mature in your faith. Jesus was the only proven perfect One. Be clothed in Christ and His perfection.
Matthew 5:48 (Amplified Bible)
48You, therefore, must be perfect [growing into complete maturity of godliness in mind and character, having reached the proper height of virtue and integrity], as your heavenly Father is perfect.
