What Is (Truly) Your First Reaction?
When a situation preoccupies our minds (a loved one who’s sick, a friend who turns against us for the wrong reasons, a catastrophe that upsets our peaceful everyday lives, etc.), our first reaction is to “do something” ... “I have to do something!,” you tell yourself.
A reader shared this with us: “My greatest frustration is trusting God to see the fulfillment without having a plan B in mind. Trusting while having several deeply buried, but real, fears in my heart.”
It’s true: Trusting God in complete abandonment to Him isn’t natural or easy. Yet, the best thing you could do at all times is to surrender yourself totally to God, for it is written that “in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” (see the Bible, Isaiah 30:15)
The best way to receive God’s supernatural peace is to sit there, in His presence, and to choose to trust Him. When you do this, you leave it to God to deal with the situation, to take care of the loved one you’re worrying about. And who better than the Lord to do so?
So, it’s true ... spending time alone with God to read His Word and listen to His voice can give the impression that “you’re doing nothing,” but that’s the whole point: This way, you’re allowing God to do “something.” And this “something” will always be much more effective than “everything” that we could do!
