Trust Him even when you can't trace Him

Sometimes, we face life's issues and wonder why God has not stepped in to help. Perhaps He has already helped us, but we may not see it yet. Even more so, we do not know how God intends to work out our issues because it is not how we expected it.  When we don't quite understand what is going on in our lives it is important to put it in God’s hands.


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5

Verse 5 tells us, lean not to our own limited understanding, but stand confident knowing we can both trust and depend on God.

“In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:6

We often forget verse 6 which tells us to acknowledge that God is at work even when we can see it and that He will show us the way.


Let God know you trust Him no matter what it looks like. God knows when to step in at the right time and turn things around. Remember, He knows and sees all. Therefore, the direction you desperately want to travel, God may instruct you that it may not be time just yet. Or the person you are praying for may need a little growing first. Whatever it is, God knows best. God will remain faithful, He will direct you when you put it all in His hands, but first you have to trust Him.  Declare you will trust Him and surrender it all; every anxiety and worry to His will.

Prayer: God, You know the circumstances and relationships in my life where I’m feeling uncertain of how to make it through. Teach me to find confidence and courage in Your presence.  Lord, help me to acknowledge you and walk with You, even when I can’t see You.  Jesus, I want my life and relationships to reflect my trust in You. In Jesus Name, Amen.
