Have you ever held on to a promise from God and seen it slip out from under your feet? I know I’ve had situations in my past where I prayed and believed that God was in every decision that was made. Then I reached a point where it seemed like God no longer existed. How does that happen? Did God change His mind? I’m not talking about simply losing hope, I’m talking about serious situations that you cannot change or remove yourself from. When you just find yourself waiting around, hoping that God will do something, anything to help. Sometimes it seems like He does nothing. How is it that you can believe a promise from God, do what needs to be done to see it come true, then have it blow up in your face. I won’t pretend to have all the answers for every situation, but one thing I’ve learned in my personal journey is that God’s ways are always higher than ours. He does love and care for each of us in every situation. The challenge is not simply to find the answer or fix every situation, it is simply to continue trusting that He does have your best interest in mind!
In the words of the old hymn by John Sammis…”Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.”
