Taken from a recent journal entry.
It’s so encouraging to know that God knows every single little detail about my life past, present, and future. He knows the answers to all of my unanswered questions. He holds tomorrow, next year, and my entire life. He holds the entire world in the palm of His hand. He lovingly cares for each living thing that he has placed on this earth.
Of course we know all of this, yet why does it sometimes seem so hard to just trust Him? Simply trust Him. Trust Him in the small things. Trust Him in the large things. Trust Him in the light. Trust Him in the dark. Trust Him in the good. Trust Him in the bad. Trust Him on the highest mountains. Trust Him in the lowest valleys. Trust Him with our families. Trust Him with our friendships and relationships. Trust Him with our health. Trust Him with our future. Trust Him with EVERYTHING.
Why does it sometimes seem so easy to forget what an amazing God we serve? Why do we forget that He is always faithful? Why do we forget that He is never changing? Why do we doubt His mercy and grace towards us? If He cares for the smallest of sparrows, why would we ever doubt His mindfulness of us? If he is in total control of the entire universe, why would we ever try to take things into our own hands? If he fearfully and wonderfully made us in His image, we can’t we trust Him with the future of our lives? Why can’t we just trust Him? Simply trust him. With every area of our lives. Always.
