Give it back

Acts 14:23

Paul and Barnabas appointed elders for them in each church and with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust.  NIV

Paul and Barnabas trusted God.

The Message says, “...they presented these new leaders to the Master to whom they had entrusted their lives.” MSG

The Master to whom they had entrusted their lives …

I look up the words “trust,” and “entrust.”  “Trust” means to have faith or to hope.  “Entrust” is to hand over, commend, delegate or assign.

Paul and Barnabas had great faith in God that prompted them to hand over their lives to Him.

God is trustworthy.  I trust him with my past, my future, and my present.

I trust God to guide the steps of my life to achieve His purposes.

It was He who gave me life … I give it back to Him, trusting that He will be faithful in all things.

That’s what I’ll think about today.
