In the UK we have entered into another national lockdown. The frustration levels are high, anxiety has gripped millions, and jobs will be lost. In this confusing time we may decide to take control, as we think God and others are taking too long and our prayers are not being answered.
We all have things weâ€™re believing for, situations we want to see changed, and dreams God has placed in our hearts. But sometimes because of difficulties, we try to figure out how itâ€™s all going to happen. Then we try to take control and start to tell God how to do it, when to do it, and where to do it! Scripture tells us that Godâ€™s ways are not our ways. They are so much higher and better. So we must continue to trust Him despite the times.
Today, as you move deeper into these uncertain times itâ€™s clear things wonâ€™t happen on your timetable, but instead of getting discouraged and down, why donâ€™t you believe that God has something better in store? Just because it doesnâ€™t happen your way, doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s not going to happen. God has a plan. Heâ€™s got it all figured out. Donâ€™t limit Him by trying to get it done your way. Instead, tell God, â€œI trust You. I believe You have my best interests at heart, and even if it doesnâ€™t happen my way, Iâ€™m going to stay in faith that You are still in total control.â€
â€œAs the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.â€ (Isaiah 55:9, NIV)Â
Yahweh, thank You for blessing me throughout my life, Today I choose to trust in You despite lifeâ€™s uncertainties. Father, I cast my cares on You. I give You my plans, dreams and desires for the future. God, I will stay in faith as You work things out on my behalf. I receive Your peace as I wait patiently to see Your plan unfold in my life, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.Â
