"Trusting God No Matter What"
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10
Life is not predictable. There are ups and downs along the way. Life can be going along smoothly for a season. Your job is satisfying. Your friends and family are well. Your goals, finances, health and outlook seem bright. Then, all of a sudden, life throws a curveball. Someone you know gets sick. You lose your job. A friend or family member betrays you. The things you felt secure in all of a sudden feel shaky and uncertain.
How do you trust that God is good in these circumstances? How do you trust Him when you do not understand what is happening? When you cannot see a resolution?
Trusting God is more than a feeling; it’s a choice to have faith in what He says even when your feelings or circumstances would have you believe something different. Your feelings and circumstances matter and are very much worth paying attention to. God cares about them both. But those things alone are not reliable enough to base your life on. They can change at any moment, even in an instant. God, on the other hand, does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow and therefore is worthy of your trust. Trusting God is not about ignoring your feelings or reality. It is not pretending that everything is OK when it isn’t. Trusting God is living a life of belief in and obedience to God even when it’s difficult. I encourage you, when life is turned upside down, look up, and trust God. He is surrounding whatever difficult situation is surrounding you.
Much love and care,
