The world is so uncertain, today, that people may be losing their confidence. It would be easy to just give up hope of ever having a better life than the one you are struggling with now; however, the Lord admonishes us to trust his plan for our future. We may not understand how it will work out, but if we will let God direct us, it will work out in his will.
There have been times that life throws situations in our path that seem impossible. It requires our total trust in the Lord to work out the details. I admit that I am not great at following the plan because often I want to see what’s ahead and by always stretching to see what is in the distance, I forget to see how God’s hand is at work in the present.
The Lord has given us an open door and our directions are to walk through it. That does require our faith to walk through the door into the unknown, but isn’t it worth it to follow Christ?
It’s time that we pay attention to the very things that truly matter: love, hope, trust. I know what it’s like to be lost, and thankfully, I know what it’s like to be a child of God, safely in his arms. Daily I learn to lean on the Lord, and I found out a long time ago that I’m nothing without the Lord. He is my strength, my fortress, my high tower, my prince of peace, and he is everything to me.
When the chaos of the world tries to overshadow your confidence in Christ, always remember that God is a very present help in the time of trouble and that he will never leave us or forsake us.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
In this week’s Lattereign, He Promises Us Strength if we Wait.
