Entrusting/Trusting God in All Things

Entrusting/Trusting God in All Things

HTO MISSION TRIP PICS (PORT MARGOT, DEC. 18-26) 436.JPG

  Peter 2:23 (NIV)

“When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.”

What does it mean to trust God?

To trust God means that we believe in the promises of God in all circumstances, even in those where the evidence seems to be contrary.

How does trusting God bring confidence? Trusting God brings confidence in the Christian life because it allows us to see God’s true character. It also causes us to realize the greatness of his love for us. Very often, God fails to do things for us because we do not permit him to do so. We want to plan for ourselves. We want things to be done in the way that seems best to our limited wisdom.

Furthermore, trusting in God means total obedience. It means working and walking with God to produce godly results. As Christians, we cannot sit down and fold our hands and expect things to work themselves out. Rather, we need to pray unceasingly.  We must be obedient workers, because our attempts to trust him who is able to accomplish all things according to his will and plan for our lives will amount to nothing if we are not willing to obey.

There is a different between trusting God and entrusting in God. Entrust implies committing with trust and confidence. In the verse mentioned above, the Apostle Peter tells us that when Jesus experienced suffering, He entrusted Himself to God.  Entrusting in God is something we do because we believe. Entrusting is more than just believing; entrust is an active trust, not passive. It requires a change in one’s behavior not in one’s thinking. So for us Christians, “entrust” in God must follow our “trust” in God; to put simply, trust in God is the first step, and entrust in God in the next step in our faith.

For Christians, trusting in God means believing in him, having confidence in him, and obeying him. When you entrust yourself to God, you will submit, surrender, and yield yourself to him so that what you believe God can and will do will happen. To trust God in all things is to live actively a victorious life and a life of discipleship.

We Need Your Help Now!

 

Dear HTO Friends and Supporters,

In December 2015, Hope for Today Outreach sent a team (Dr. Celucien Joseph and his wife Katia Joseph, and other partners in Haiti) to the rural area of Corail, Port Margot (Haiti). As we walked through the neighborhoods, handing out small donations to families, we were have witnessed God’s love, grace, and mercy toward the people of Port-Margot. The people were very grateful and thankful for what they received from us. Their words of appreciation made us feel so proud of we have achieved so far at Hope for Today Outreach (HTO). We witnessed their poverty and suffering, and we realized how much we needed to add to our donations food such as rice, beans, and non-perishable food.  And this is the reason why we are writing to you now, to request your help, with either a donation of funds to buy the food for the people or a donation of food (rice, beans, and non-perishable food) to provide for 500 underprivileged and poor families in Port-Margot.

Hope for Today Outreach puts great emphasis on feeding the hungry and the poor, as we believe the biblical imperative to always “remember the poor” (Galatians 2:10).  I’m sure you know of how important it is to care for the less fortunate… They are our brothers and sisters after all.  Obviously, we won’t be able to accomplish this task without the assistance of partners and supporters like you; hence, we beseech you to help us by sponsoring HOP or by donating the items needed for our June mission trip to Port-Margot, Haiti.

By sponsoring and helping feeding the poor of Corail, Port Margot, you will be reaching out to many undeserved families, alleviating hunger and poverty in the Region, and making a tremendous difference in the lives of children, young people, and families in such a big way!

For my Christian friends (being a follower of Christ), I’m sure   you will understand the importance of giving to the poor and care for the needy; it is a way to spread the good news and love of Christ, and this is what this ministry’s main goal!  We want to reach out to the people of Port Margot and help them to know the Lord in a personal way, yet through our act of kindness and compassion. Also, by helping us feeding the people of Corail, HTO will be providing a huge service to all the families.

If you would like to sponsor or provide assistance toward this coming mission trip in June, please contact me, Katia Joseph via the telephone (772-985-0696), or via email at customers@hopefortodayoutreach.org.
