SOMETIMES…….OTHER TIMES – IT’S A MATTER OF TRUST
I don’t know exactly why, but I’m back again tonight on this issue of trust.
Whatever vicissitude of life you are dealing with, whatever the situation, whatever the circumstance, recognize that God wants you to trust Him.
He wants you to trust the truth of His Word.
He wants you to trust the leading of His Holy Spirit.
He wants you to trust His wisdom, sovereignty and love.
Even if things take an unexpected turn and the outcome is not what you want, He still wants you to trust Him in the midst of it all.
Tonight, be encouraged to trust God in your situation and to show your trust in your obedience to Him, knowing that whatever the outcome, at the end of the day, He’s got your back.
I wrote and posted the following poem in July of 2012 and thought I’d re-post it again tonight to encourage you in a realistic way….:)
Sometimes our prayers are like dynamite, explosively changing our situations with results easily seen.
Other times they are like a constant drip of water on a rock, steadily eroding the dynamics of our situation with changes hidden from the naked eye.
Sometimes healing manifests in our bodies instantly, miraculously, effortlessly.
Other times it is a painstaking process entailing physical suffering and requiring continuous faith until manifested promise.
Sometimes God gives us the very thing that we want.
Other times like a loving parent, He withholds it for our own good.
Sometimes we pray that a person lives through a life-threatening situation and they survive.
Other times we pray fervently, believing for them to live and they die.
Sometimes provision comes for financial needs way in advance.
Other times it comes on the 59th minute of the 11th hour.
Sometimes God delivers us from fiery trials.
Other times we have to walk through the fire of affliction from beginning to end.
BUT REST ASSURED THAT AT ALL TIMES GOD HAS OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART SO WE CAN TRUST HIM.
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
(Romans 8:28 – NLT)
