Trust God

When I am afraid, beaten, hurt, broken, tired, betrayed, falsely accused, talked about, frustrated, or angry I will always choose to place my trust in God in Christ Jesus!

Ecclesiastes 7:13-14 reminds us to, “Consider what God has done: Who can straighten
what he has made crooked? When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future.”

Solomon knew back then that life was not predictable. He knew God’s people would experience ups, downs, highs, and lows along their pathway of life. As it was for God’s people then, so it is for us today. We are no different than the people in the days old; many of us want to trust God when times are good because it can feels a easier. But when times get difficult, it is even more important to trust God and that’s the contextual wisdom nugget Solomon is teaching us in the above reference scripture.

Beloved, God’s unchanging character can give us a firm foundation when things feel unsteady and uncertain. It behooves us to never forget that God is bigger than our circumstances. Difficult times may feel like they last forever, but they are temporary and they pale in comparison to eternity. God is always present amid the bad times as well as the good (Hebrews 13:5).God is always faithful (2 Tim 2:13). Therefore, in times of doubt, remember His promises (Joshua 21:45). Remember who He has always been. Even in doubt and uncertainty, if you keep going to Him believing, He will continually show Himself to be trustworthy (Hebrews 11:6).
