Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
Do you ever, like me, have times when you cannot understand what God is doing in your life? Times when you say to God, “I don’t know why you let this stuff happen to me?”
For me it happens less now, but it still happens. When it does happen I have to still my mind, start praying in tongues and say, “Father, calm me. I know this is your will for me at this moment!”
If you are in a place like this right this minute, you must trust God anyway. Say to yourself, “This is a test, I will take it and I will pass it with flying colors by trusting God and being patient.”
Through the years I have realized that we cannot learn to trust God if we never go through situations in which our trust is tested.
I have known people who never had a problem in their lives. They have never known what it is to do without the basic necessities. They come from wealthy families and that wealth has been turned over to them, commonly.
Those people, however, never learn to trust so when the moment comes when something unexpected happens to them they literally fall to pieces because they have never experienced losing anyone, anything, or doing without.
So, like Job, we learn that we do not have to be out of God’s will to be tested. God loves us and wants the best for us. It helps to remember that, during times of wondering what in the world is causing a delay to our prayers.
Without an unconditional trust in God our lives will be miserable. Each one of us has times when we experience the silence of God. We have times of questioning, as Job did.
The sooner we quit stressing, quit telling everyone our problems and just relax in trust, the more peaceful our lives will be.
I have found that as I let go of worry, questioning of God, and stressing and telling my problems to everyone, God miraculously answers my prayers quickly.
Take a deep breath. Breathe in to the count of four and then let the air out of your lungs slowly. It will be okay. Even if nobody in your whole life has been trustworthy, God is and will be with you through this storm and all the storms of your life!
In His Unconditional Love,
