The Unfairness of It All
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” - Proverbs 3:5
When God calls us to give something up – something precious to us… believe me when I say He has a much better, much bigger plan set in place. He is working ALL things together for His kingdom and our good – EVERY time.
When that time comes, will you trust Him? We all plan our course; it’s the most natural thing in the world to do. But, it is God who determines our steps. When His plan for your life collides with your own, will you follow His leading?
When the choices seem impossible… will you lean not on your own understanding, but place your faith in our unseen but ALL powerful God?
The redemption of you and all those who surround you may be weighing in the balance.
Again, I ask; will you trust Him? Prove it.
Prayer: God… I cannot imagine the love it would take to allow such hurt into the lives of a creation that you have taken such care with. I get upset when a flower I’ve tended for months stops blooming. I am bothered when a dog won’t obey. How much more invested you are in every one of our lives! Good things happen to bad people. Bad things absolutely happen to good people. Somehow – the unfairness of it all does not rest easily in our souls. But – You are up to something much greater than we could ever imagine. Teach us to trust you – no matter what storms may come our way.
