The dreaded issue of trust emerges again. But this time, you might really want to think about putting some genuine effort into working on this. I’m not talking about your spouse, your family or friends. I’m talking about Him. Jehovah Jireh our provider, but only for the necessities, food, gas money, light bill money, stuff like that. He is also Jehovah Rapha our healer but only for the common cold, the flu or maybe a few broken bones. Ask for anything more and you’re putting yourself out there, setting yourself up for disappointment just like the last time He didn’t come through and it almost destroyed you.
That used to be me, battling within myself on whether or not I could trust God. After praying for 4 pregnancies, 4 babies and then losing them all it’s easy to become a bit bitter. What I didn’t realize then is that, that bitterness is bondage. And as long as the enemy can keep you there, he can keep you from becoming the person God intended for you to be.
God did gift me with a healthy baby boy but it wasn’t until after my 6th pregnancy and 5th loss that I found a new perspective on trust which is this, we should have more faith in God to do what is good, then in our situation to turn out the way we think it should.
In our dark places it’s so easy to lose sight of the fact that Gods thoughts and ways are higher than ours and that no matter what happens in our lives all things work together for our good. In order to truly believe that, you have to truly trust God all the time. It’s not easy, but it’s incredibly worth it.
