But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”
This past week has been filled with options. Sometimes we get the pleasure of deciding between “good” and “great.” Those decisions actually require a lot of thought.
When the choice comes down to choosing either “good” or “bad”, the decision making time is reduced dramatically, but the presence of the bad option makes us appreciate how difficulty life can be.
But there are also times when we have to chose between “bad” or “worse.”
There is a lot of unpacking that needs to accompany that last phrase, but we’ll have to get to that later.
Regardless of the options that are in front of you, there is always a response that needs to come from within you: Faith.
King David was often surrounded by enemies and struggling with heartache. But in spite of the limited, or negative, options to chose from, he determined to trust in God.
Job was presented with bad choices. Everything in Job’s life that brought him joy and security were taken away. His response ought inform our response in times of difficulty:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”
We can always choose to trust.
Trusting comes easily, praise God, on comfortable days.
Trusting comes with pain, on difficult days.
But everyday we learn that God is worthy of our faith, trust, and praise.
How are you learning to trust God? What are you facing that puts your trust to the test?
Let’s share our prayers for each other so that our trust in God may be strengthened.
