I’ve come to realise that acting out the phrase is not as easy as it is to say it.
How do you trust when things seem to work against you?
How do you trust when you are in the midst of suffering?
How do you trust when you wake up day after day to disappointments and proof of your failure stares back at you… taunting you?
How do you trust when nothing seems right?
It’s easier said than done. Well, maybe it’s easy for you… But it’s not so easy for me. I have come to realise it’s easy to talk about trusting God than to actually trust Him. When everything is rosy, it’s easy to shout out praises. Life is easy when you’re up on the mountain.
But one thing I believe is taking it a day at a time. Remembering His promises that all things will work for good of the ones who love Him. Repeating this promise to yourself in the face of the challenges.
Recalling That the plans He has for me are for good even though I may not see it right now and everything looks bleak and sad.
How do you have faith? Scripture says it comes by hearing. What’s the inner voice saying? Is it faith filled or fearful? Is it to trust God or keep looking at the situation. Like Peter walking on water, is our gaze on Jesus or on the storms around is. You don’t just simply believe, you live out the believe. Daily focus on Jesus and his words of affirmation.
