Is God requiring you to do or endure something, and yet you remain reluctant to trust Him?  If so, honor Him by trusting His Word. Ask God to make you sensitive to His presence. God wants you to realize the relationship you have with Him. There is nothing more refreshing than realizing the presence of God. Only then, will you sense a freedom to be honest with God. This is what you need to make you decisive about  the will of God for your life. Regardless of what your situation is, God will sustain you. Knowing the liberty we have to cast all our cares upon Christ is a matter of biblical fact that compels our obedience to the Holy Spirit.

Sincerely, Dr. Arthur Belanger   

​​​Epistle of Jude verses 20 to 25  Reposing The Believer
Jude concludes his epistle by reposing the believer.  That is, take rest in Jesus Christ.  

Example:   at first, the responsibility seemed reasonable enough. However, as the reality of Moses' death grew, Joshua be came all aware of his own inadequacies.   He may have given up had it not been for the word of encouragement God gave him (Joshua 1:2). You are never alone in the decisions you face. Christ is with you.  God's will for your life will always have the believer obviously different from the world.  Jude is very careful to remind us of this matter and encourages us to rest in Christ.
