Trust the One Who Sees The Beginning and the End at the Same Time
God encourages us to Trust Him. Even though the challenges we are facing seem to be spinning out of control… when we are shaken out of our comfortable routines, when our bodies are racked by pain, He desires us to look to Him as our Source of comfort, stability, and growth. He tells us not to be afraid, but to take refuge in the shelter of His wings, where we are absolutely secure. Remember, God is not limited by space and time. He sees (from His perspective) both the end of a matter from the beginning.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity.
“TRUST ME, and don’t be afraid. Many things feel out of control. Your routines are not running smoothly. You tend to feel more secure when your life is predictable. Let Me lead you to the Rock that is higher than you and your circumstances. Take refuge in the shelter of My wings, where you are absolutely secure.
When you are shaken out of your comfortable routines, grip My hand tightly and look for growth opportunities. Instead of bemoaning the loss of your comfort, accept the challenge of something new. I lead you on from glory to glory, making you fit for My kingdom. Say yes to the ways I work in your life. Trust Me, and don’t be afraid.”
