Trusting In Difficult Situations
Updated: Feb 13, 2021
Have you ever been in a situation where you just had to trust God no matter the outcome?
Recently I was at a concert where the electricity went off for the majority of the event and only came back on when it was coming to the end. Through the concert, I was praying to God asking Him to bring back on the electricity for the sake of the artistes. The whole time I was focusing on the situation rather than on God.
I then realized that there was no point in focusing on the electricity but rather to focus on God, to set my affection on things above (Colossians 3:2). It came to me that I had to put my full trust in God even when the circumstances seemed like they weren't going to change. I had to set my gaze on God and stop worrying about what could happen or what should happen. I had to surrender my cares and my burden to Him even as it says in 1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV), casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
So we should cast all our cares and burdens upon Him because He cares for us, loves us, and does not want us to worry about anything. He says in Matthew 11:28-30 that His yoke is easy and His burden is light and He says to take His yoke upon us.
It may be hard at first to put all of our trust in God but God knows what is best for each and every one of us. He knows the past, the present, and the future. His ways are higher than our ways.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)
