Many Christians will say that their trust is in the Lord, myself included. When we face difficulties is when we truly discover whether or not those words are true. When we encounter financial struggles do we stop tithing? When our children are wayward do we pray as much as we worry? When our health is failing do we ask "why me" or do we rest in contentment knowing that God's plan is good?
It's easy to say that we trust him when everything is going our way. It's much more difficult when we feel all four walls closing in.
Do you trust God when times are hard? What is an area of your life that you are not trusting God with at this time? What are you placing your trust in instead? Your job? Your family? Your own wisdom? Will you surrender control and trust him?
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to trust you during the peaks and the valleys of life. Help us to trust you when we have nothing and when every need is met. Help us to remember that all good things come from you. You are reliable. You are trustworthy. You are all we need. We thank you for every blessing you've poured out on our life. We pray that you continue to walk with us, grow us, and help us to be more like you.
It's in Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
