How to trust God more...

There was a man who got lost in the desert. After wandering around for a long time his throat became very dry, about that time he saw a little shack in the distance. 

He made his way over to the shack and found a water pump with a small jug of water and a note. 

The note read: "pour all the water into the top of the pump to prime it, if you do this you will get all the water you need". 

Now the man had a choice to make, if he trusted the note and poured the water in and it worked he would have all the water he needed. 

If it didn't work he would still be thirsty and he might die. Or he could choose to drink the water in the jug and get immediate satisfaction, but it might not be enough and he still might die. 

After thinking about it the man decided to risk it. He poured the entire jug into the pump and began to work the handle, at first nothing happened and he got a little scared but he kept going and water started coming out. So much water came out he drank all he wanted, took a shower, and filled all the containers he could find. 

Because he was willing to give up momentary satisfaction, he got all the water he needed. Now the note also said: "after you have finished, please refill the jug for the next traveller." 

The man refilled the jug and added to the note: " Please prime the pump, believe me it works"! 

We have the same choice to make, do we hold on to what we have because we don't believe there are better things in store for us, and settle for immediate satisfaction? Or do we trust God and give up all that we have to get what God has promised us? 

I think the choice is obvious. We need to pour in all the water, trust God with everything. 

Now, you may be thinking..."But trusting God is easier said than done." And I agree. 

That's why you need to constantly read your Bible, memorize, and meditate its message. The reason being...regularly meditating your memory verse helps to build up your faith in God and you learn to trust Him more. 

Scripture memorization is a powerful habit that some Christians have not developed that's why some fail to grow spiritually. In the end, life is about choices. It's your choice to remain in your level of faith or your choice to grow maturely in Christ.
