You need to trust in the Spirit in small things because when the big problem arrives you will find it difficult to trust in the Spirit for help, It is just like when you made a mew friend. There is no way to now how much you can trust them. It is only over after a period of time after you have helped them and they have helped you that a trust is built.
Now do not get me wrong the Spirit is always there to help you. You have had Spirit guides since the day you were born. They have been standing right beside you all the time. They have helped you before the best way they could. They wished they could have helped you more but they were limited. Not by some evil force but by you. Your lack of faith has built a wall around you that only you have the power to tear down.
The blessings that the average man has missed out on is phenomenal. Most people have no idea what the Spirit had in store for them if only they had let them in. And to tell you the truth it was not that persons fault. What most people are aware of is just the tip of the iceberg. There is so much hidden from us. It was not until the internet became widely used that the word finally started to get out and then most people do not believe it. There again it is not that individuals fault.
When you start the journey down the road of Spiritual growth you will find that there is more that you have to unlearn then what you have to learn. You have to peal off this heavy coating of tar that you are encased in. layer by layer before you can even begin to see the light. All these old beliefs that are not serving you any more have to be replaced with new enlightened beliefs that will serve you better.
You have to turn all those negative thoughts in to positive thoughts. You have to realize that all the evil in the world is in the minds of man. The greatest gift man was given was the gift of free will and over time men have hid the true meaning from the average man. They did this so that they could have control over us. The biggest weapon in their arsenal is fear and they are using it all the time.
From a very early age we are taught to fear. Most of the time this fear is taught to us to protect us. Then there are those that use fear to control us. So it is no wonder that we are afraid to trust in the Spirit because one of the conditions of trusting in the Spirit is that we have to suspend all our fears and trust in Him entirely. This is very hard for most people to do. It takes a lot of courage to let go off all our fears.
So take my advice. Start trusting the Spirit and you will find over time that you will be able to release all your fears to Him and start to live in Unconditional Love. Which brings peace and happiness into your life and the lives of the people around you.
