Do you trust the Lord wholeheartedly?
While I would love to say yes, I wholly and totally trust my Lord, but my actions don’t always align with those words. I worry, doubt, and question the Lord continuously. When the trials of life hit me, I try to pray them away. Sometimes, I resist God’s plan so hard that anxiety overpowers me, and the storm rages inside me.
I don’t want to walk through the fire. I like the blessings without the work and pain of it all.
Sometimes, I see the problem and focus so completely on it that I can’t see God working it all out in the background. But when He gives me a little glimpse of His master plan, all my doubts and fears disappear.
I cause so much pain when I try to figure it out for myself and resist God’s plan. But when I can take it all and surrender it to Jesus, He can help me to overcome every trial.
Not my will, Lord, but yours is so powerful. It takes my deepest desires, gives them to the Lord, and then trusts Him to make the best decision. Sometimes, when I’m in the midst of it all, I just have to remind myself of what’s truly important. I want God’s will to be done in my life.
I want to be someone God can use. Therefore, I have to go through the hardships of life and allow God to mold me. I must learn to pray about the problem and let go of the outcome. If it’s God’s will, nothing can stop it from happening, and if it’s not His will, then it’s not the best for me.
When I can get to that place, my fear diminishes, and hope fills my heart. In the precious hope of my Lord, my faith increases, and I can praise God through the storms.
Romans 8:28 KJV
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
