This trust thing. It’s hard.
Trust in the Lord with ALL YOUR HEART. All of it? Really?
Yes, that is what we are instructed to do, but oh how hard that is. To give it all to Him. To relinquish control and not worry about what others say. To relinquish control and not lean on our own understanding. Because, wow, our understanding is so incredibly limited in comparison to God’s.
In the society we live in today, we have become so used to instantaneous answers. I text someone and in no time they text back. I sometimes have a question about cooking or baking and I pick up the phone to call my Mom for a quick answer, but if she isn’t home, what do I do? I text her. If she doesn’t answer, I don’t wait for her to get back to me, I Google my question and I have plenty of answers in seconds.
Trusting God doesn’t mean we get instantaneous answers. Sure, I’d love a quick text from God with an answer about a few things in life right now, but I am learning that in the waiting, He is drawing me closer to him. As we acknowledge Him, He makes our paths straight. (Proverbs 3:6)
What are you waiting for today? Are you drawing nearer to God as you wait?
