The Lord is sovereign even when I don’t understand, and things don’t make sense. His ways are much higher than my ways, so I must choose to trust.
Everything I see in part will someday be fully known—until that day when all is revealed, I will choose to trust.
When I see good people die and bad people thrive, I will choose to trust.
When I see righteousness dwindle and evil seems to take over, even then I will choose to trust.
I will believe and trust, not in my circumstances, but in the Person and character of God. I will trust in His written Word which is active and alive and sharper than any two-edged sword.
I choose to believe and trust and walk by faith, knowing that God is loving and His plans for me and this world He created are good and just.
He is working all things for His sovereign purpose, conforming His children into the likeness of His Son. Even when the holy process of being refined is uncomfortable and anything but fun, I will choose to follow and obey and trust in His ways.
Until the moment when Jesus returns and makes everything clear, I will choose to press on toward that glorious Day and trust in His promises to make all things new, clinging to the hope of my heavenly future with Him.
2 Corinthians 5:6-11, “Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
