I often struggle with waiting on the Lord. Perhaps I shouldn’t admit that, but there you have it. I am an impatient creature wanting answers to questions rumbling around in my head and heart. How about you? In the midst of my struggles I turn to the Scriptures. God’s Love Letter to us. He is asking us to wait on Him. To trust Him, in every situation. He is our strength when we have absolutely nothing left.
“Trusting in God, the heart is fixed. If God will save my soul, I may well leave every thing else to his disposal.” (Matthew Henry’s Bible Commentary, concise)
How is it that we can trust Him for salvation for our eternal lives, but struggle with trusting Him for our everyday issues? It’s definitely a conundrum. So reason would say, (I admit, reason is not my strong point), if I can trust him for the safety of my soul, I should be able to trust Him in everyday life and all its struggles.
King David (in the Old Testament) totally understood this. Look at this:
“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation come from him.
He alone is my rock and salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.”
(Psalm 62: 1-2, 5-6 NIV)
We can trust Him, NO MATTER WHAT. It isn’t just our eternal life Christ is concerned about. He is absolutely interested in every area of our lives, no matter how big or small they may seem. Matthew 10:29-31 says:
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Italics and bold were added).”
I encourage you today, to wait and trust. I speak to myself as well. In everything, God can be trusted. Wait and see that the Lord is good.
“I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his Word I put my hope.” (Psalm 130:5 NIV)
