Do you believe that God knows what is best for you?

God knows what is best for us. It’s true, even if it doesn’t feel true sometimes. 

When we are in the trial, consumed by the pain and unfairness of everything, it’s hard to see how it could be the best option. We want easy. As the waves of turmoil crash over us, we want it to stop immediately. 

In these times, I cry and pray and beg to end my suffering. 

I’m so thankful that God comforts me in my distress, but He doesn’t end the trial just because I beg Him to. He stands firm in His decision to do what’s best for me. 

If God had listened to me, my life would be a mess. I wouldn’t have many answered prayers because I would change my mind when it got tough. I wouldn’t have gone through the trials if I had known how much heartache it would take to get to the blessing. I’m just being honest. 

I’m not strong, but I have a mighty God who comforts me continually and carries me when my strength falters. 

I’m not wise, but I have a God who is all-wise, who leads me and guides me. 

I’m incapable of doing amazing things, but I have a God who turns my impossible into possible. 

I’m in awe when I think about all we’ve endured and overcome together. I feel so loved as I think about all the tears, sleepless nights, panic attacks, sickness, heartache, worries, projects, doubts, and fears the Lord has helped me overcome. In the deepest of trials, He was right there with me. He never left me. 

I won’t discuss some of it, but the Lord knows every detail. He’s seen me at my absolute worst, yet He still works on me to become my best. 

I’m so thankful that I am complete in Him. I am deeply loved and highly favored. My soul can’t be any better than it is right now. Therefore, it’s about living according to my soul and not my flesh. 

My flesh has sinned—it’s the same as it’s always been. God didn’t save my flesh; He saved and changed my soul. The key to living my best life is to live according to my soul and not my flesh. 

My soul wants to please God and live according to the fruit of the spirit. 

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Living in alignment with God is my best self. God satisfies, fills, and gives me exactly what I need when I need it. 

Trials are tough. Yet, they break me so beautifully that God can use my healing to help others and shine a light on Him through my brokenness.
