Trusting God’s Plan In The Hard TimesJessica Griggs
When faced with trials and tribulations, it is easy for Christians to doubt God’s promises. However, in the book of Proverbs we are reminded to trust in God with all our hearts and he shall direct our paths. From this verse, we learn that God is always in control, even when things seem out of control. Christians should not rely on their own understanding, because even though they may not understand God’s wisdom, they can be sure that he wants what’s best for them.God Sees the End From the Beginning
Christians are not able to discern the future, and this is what causes a lot of us to worry. However, it is important to remember that God sees the end from the beginning. He knows what is coming, and he prepares a way that brings relief.
Trust in God’s Promises
In Jeremiah 29:11, God declares that he has plans to help believers prosper. He does not intend to harm any believer, but he plans to give them hope and a future. In times of trials, it is important for Christians to remember to put their trust in God’s word. He is bigger than any problems they face. As he says in Romans 8:31: If God is for us, who can be against us?
Trusting God in Through the Storm
Casting Crowns said it best in their song Praise You In The Storm. They state, “But as the thunder rolls, I barely hear you whisper through the rain, ‘I’m with you’.” Even when things are not right, God is still working. He promises not to forsake us, and that all things work out for good to those who love him.
It can be hard to trust in God’s word and promises when everything seems to be falling apart. In times of turmoil and uncertainty, Christians may feel that their strength is failing them, and they may question God’s plan and presence in their life. However, it is during these times of spiritual crisis that they should commit their way to God and trust him fully. During the darkest times, Christians can grow more in Christ and be drawn closer to God.
Encourage your brother and sister in Christ with this message, and remind them that God is still working in their life, even when things are tough.
