This God! His way is perfect!
What the Lord declares proves true.
He shields everyone who flees for protection to him! 2 Samuel 22:31 ISV
When things don’t go as we expect them to, we have the tendency to complain and question. But if we truly trust in the Lord with all our heart, we won’t question. Why? Because we know as sons and daughters of God, our steps are ordered by Him and He takes great delight in the plans He has for us (Psalm 37:23).
Think about it. When you get on an airplane, you trust the pilot to get you where you need to be, right? You don’t even have a relationship with them, yet you trust them to get you safely to your destination.
There are hundreds of stories in the bible we can reference, but do you remember when the children of Israel made their exodus from Egypt? They were led by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night until they arrived at the Red Sea and set up camp. They complained that Moses brought them there to die, but God had a plan to do something so great that there would never be another doubt that He was their deliverer and all or their enemies would know He was Lord!
We’ve all faced ‘Red Sea’s’ before and wondered, “Did I make a wrong turn? Should I go back? I don’t understand! I can’t see! Which way do I go, Lord?” When I come to that place and the ‘wonder why’s’ hit me in the face, I get quiet before the Lord and simply say, “I trust in You! I’m just going to worship You and listen for Your direction. You’ve shown me what to do in the past and I believe You’ll do it again!”
So even when you don’t understand, rejoice in him! Lift up your hands to God and say thank you! For His intentions are always for good and not evil.
Don’t allow fear to derail your blessing.
