While at work listening to music, the song that drew my attention was Through it all by Andrae Crouch . I took time out to reflect on the words of the song. Asking myself questions of if I have been able to trust Jesus through all the trials and tribulations, ups and downs of life, when all around you are not working according to your intentional plans. Could I really say through it all I have learnt to trust Him all the way?
Trusting God during challenging times can be so difficult and frustrating because your mind cant seem to comprehend why you dont have a job yet when you are highly experienced in your field of job application. Or why your marriage is breaking down and the Lord says trust Me I can and will work it out. Could it be that you have found yourself in a difficult dilemma that you cant seem to get out off.
With your mind you know what the Word of God states and with your heart you believe. In my opinion trust has so much to do with the heart than the mind. Because sometimes you might have a deeper understanding of the Word but do you believe without a doubt, beyond reasonable doubt that He is able and willing to see you through it all.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
God allows you to pass through lonely hours of trials and tribulations so you can learn to trust Jesus Christ all the way through till you receive your breakthrough and triumphant victory in Him.
It is time to thank God for those mountains and valleys that you have been passing through in the past and present. Appreciate Him for walking with you through those mountains and teaching you to trust in Jesus. As He teaches you through the power of the Holy Spirit, you learn to depend completely on His Word.
He never fails, He will never fail you so through it all can you learn to trust and believe in God ? His Word remains the same yersterday, today and forever. When He speaks it comes to pass. Will you be patient through it all to see the end of the matter, for the end is better than the beginning.
