Listen. close. There’s a whisper: “Will you trust me now?”
It’s easy to trust God when life is good, but what about when life takes an unexpected turn. Do you hear the whisper? “Will you trust me now?”
When life gets difficult, maybe even seemingly impossible, will you then stop trusting God? Oh, we may say “of course not” but in reality when worry, anxiety and fear loom larger than trust we need to ask ourselves the question – will I stop trusting Him NOW?
We may need to remind ourselves multiple times a day or even multiple times an hour– out loud, “I will trust Him now. I will trust Him now. I will trust Him even now. Yes, Lord I will trust You now.”
“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4
