Trust in the Lord and wait quietly for his help. Psalm 37:7a
Sometimes I think that is the most difficult thing to do, trusting and the waiting quietly yet this is what God asks of us. All throughout the bible we read the same things, wait on the Lord. I believe it’s because His vision is so much broader than ours and so vast. He takes it all in, the beginning, the end, He sees and knows it all. There is so much to His plan and we are only a small part in it.
Most of us have trust issues. We will only trust in what we see, what we know to be fact. We refuse to trust the unknown, to place our trust in a God we can’t see. We won’t trust anything we can’t control or manipulate into giving us the desired end result. But what we end up doing is simply frustrate ourselves because we can’t control all the variables.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20
It’s ok not to know everything, but know the one who does and wait quietly for Him to work it all out for Your good. Trust who is in you! The same God who raised Christ from the dead lives in you! The same power. The same answer. The same God.
I will trust you Lord for you know what’s best for me. This week may our focus shift to You who knows. Let me remember that You have all things in Your hands. You have all the details worked out. I will be quiet before You and wait patiently until You reveal your great plan and my part in it. I will trust You. Amen
