I remember when I was very young, my parents took us on a little trip to a ‘surprise’ destination. They didn’t tell us where we were going, just that it would be a ‘surprise’. I don’t remember where we went, all I remember is not knowing where we were going. To keep us from asking the infamous, “Are we there yet” question, my mom would read a book to us, something to distract us on our trip.
When I got in the car with my dad and mom, there were some things I just didn’t pay attention to; I didn’t think about the gas it would take to get there, or what we would eat (because trust me, I was a growing girl!). No, there was an element of trust there. When they said we were going, we went. If we had a flat tire, it got changed. When we needed gas, they stopped to fill the tank. And when I was hungry, they fed me!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve encountered this scenario so many times in my journey with God. He tells me I’m going on a journey, but doesn’t share where or just how long it will take, or what I’ll encounter when I get there. The only thing I know is that we’re going together, that He’ll take care of me, and that I can trust Him.
When I’m hungry, He’ll feed me. When I’m sick, He’ll heal me. When I have a need, He’ll fill it. I TRUST HIM! And to keep myself from constantly asking questions, I read His Book. It tells me stories of His faithfulness. I see Him doing it for others and know He’ll do it for me. I TRUST HIM! I’m His child and He takes care of me. I do what He says and rest in His promises, because He’s a good Father and regardless of what happens around me, I TRUST HIM!
Isaiah 55:8-11 Message says this; “I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work.” God’s Decree. “For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth, doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry, so will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.”
You’re thinking way to small if you think that the God who hung the stars, can’t take care of you. What you’re going through right now, it pales in comparison to what He has planned for you. Just because you can’t see your destination, doesn’t mean He’s forgotten where you’re going. Let Him drive and care for you because YOU CAN TRUST HIM.
Father, I declare today that I trust You. Thanks for the reminder that there is nothing too hard for You and that my worry is simply a huge waste of time! Every day I will thank You. Every day I will Love You. Most importantly, every day I will trust You, my Father. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
