“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God…”
Trusting in God is one of the most important traits we must strive to do in our walk with Christ. In the dictionary, trust is defined as reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, and surety of a person or thing. When we trust in God, we are showing that we have faith and confidence in Him alone and that He will always keep His promises. But, sometimes, when our faith is tested, it is hard to trust in His promises. I experienced this a few weeks ago when we found out that my mom had miscarried. I knew that God promised in Romans 8:28, “All things work together for good to those who love God,” but I didn’t see how any good could come from something like this. I prayed to God, asking Him for an answer. The next day, I read this:
“When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.”
-Corrie Ten Boom
This truly is such a perfect example of what we must do when we go through a “tunnel.” We must trust that He will keep His promises, even when we don’t see any good in it. It is so important to always keep in mind that God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. He knows the future while we don’t even know what tomorrow holds. He is all-powerful, and we are just mere sinful humans.
God has taught me so much during these past few weeks. Things that I may not have learned if I hadn’t gone through the trial. It has reminded me how important it is that we give Him all our fears, worries, and doubts, and trust in Him. He knows what is best for us, so let us walk in faith and trust that He will keep His promises to us.
