Trusting God When What God Does Doesn’t Make Sense.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
Do you ever wonder why God sometimes lets a bad situation not only get worse but get impossible? How do you trust God when what He does doesn’t make sense? If you’re wondering, “God, what are You doing? Where are You?”, this message is for you.
Why would God let our most difficult problems go from bad to impossible if He really loves us? Doesn’t make much sense, does it? Why is it there are times when there are difficulties in your life, there’s pain in your life, there’s a relationship that’s shredded, there’s something wrong with your body, you need some money, you need a job, you got a kid who is in trouble, and you say, “God, help! Help! Help!”
And instead of it getting better, it doesn’t get bad, it doesn’t get worse. It goes to impossible. And then it raises this issue like, “Does Jesus really care?”
Here is a good way ahead – ‘Trust in the Lord with every part of your heart, and don’t try to work it out with your own mind or understanding. Submit everything to the Lord and He’ll make a way through, in every situation.
So stop the “If You do this, I’ll love You more” syndrome.) God never changes. He unconditionally loves us and plans what’s best for us. Let’s love Him unconditionally.
Prayer: Lord, I thank You that You’re willing to work with me and make a way through in my life and circumstances. I’m sorry that I’ve held parts of myself back from You. Please forgive me. I choose to offer the whole of my heart to You. Please help me to trust You, to lean on You and to follow You. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
