DailyRead-Art-wlogoReading:  Jeremiah 17:7
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,whose confidence is in him.

 

Did Abraham understand what God was doing on Mount Moriah? Did Moses understand what God was doing when He led the people to a waterless desert? Did Gideon understand what God was doing when He reduced his army to 300? Did David understand what God was doing when his son seized his throne? Did Jehoshaphat understand what God was doing when He commanded that the choir march first into battle? Did the widow at Zerapath understand what God was doing when Elijah demanded her last meal?

Did Paul understand what God was doing when He left him in jail for years on end? Did Mary and Martha understand what God was doing when Lazarus died? Did the servants understand what Jesus was doing when He commanded them to fill six water pots with water? What of the martyred legions of Hebrews 11? Did they understand what God was doing when they were flogged, imprisoned, stoned, sawn in two, and put to death by the sword?

Do you understand what God is doing right now in your circumstances? In seeking to understand, we are missing the very heart of the Christian faith. It’s not about complete understanding; it’s about trust!
