Trust God even when you don’t understand

Trusting God When You Don’t Understand – Top 4 Things to Remember

When you’re faced with real life hurts and issues, trusting God when you don’t understand is easier said than done. It’s easy to say, “give your cares to the Lord and trust Him” when everything in life seems to be going well. It’s easy to say, “I trust you Lord with everything I own” when bills are paid on time and when you just got a promotion at work.

However, if God striped you of everything you own; If God told you to leave the very job that’s paying your bills, will you trust the Lord enough to do it? Will you trust God even when you don’t understand; even when life hurts? If God told you to leave the familiar and enter the unfamiliar, will you trust Him?

For many of you, God has done just that. He has taken you from what’s “oh so familiar” and redirected your paths into the unfamiliar. You don’t understand what’s happening in your life; what to do or where to go. The only thing you know is that the Lord gave you a word (instruction, a promise, vision, etc) and the only thing you have to hold on to is that word.

I understand the feeling; you’re not alone. There is encouragement for you today. Here are 4 things to remember about trusting God when you don’t understand:

Consider the Source
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last (Revelation 22:13).

Who else can say that but God? No one, only God can say such a thing. God knows everything: the past, current and future and our knowledge and understanding doesn’t even compare to the knowledge and understanding of God – even when it applies to our own life.

Furthermore, when you don’t understand what God is doing in your life, consider the source – Who is it that you’re trusting; God or yourself?

Here is something to remember. Man is fallible; we fall short and at times we’re unable to keep our promises. Man can give you instructions that are misleading and imperfect. With God, none of these things are possible. God keeps His promises, God gives you right instructions according to His perfect will and He won’t mislead you.

No matter how much you don’t understand life as it is right now; no matter how uncomfortable it may seem or how hard it gets, don’t give up. If God is with you – the same God who spoke life into you, the same God who IS and knows the beginning and the end, the same God who knew you before the foundation of this world -is with you, then ask yourself who or WHAT can stand against you.

Consider the source and seek to be obedient to the Lord, even when trusting God when you don’t understand is hard. Don’t worry about “this or that” because God has provision for you.

Trust the Lord
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).

When you learn to trust the Lord completely, you begin to have a sense of rest in Him. You begin to realize that God has everything under control even when life appears to be out of control. Trusting God when you don’t understand brings you to a point where you decide to trust God and NOT in your own logic and understanding.

As Christians, we must make a decision to trust God regardless of how scary the situation may seem. Trusting God doesn’t prevent you from being in uncomfortable situations but it does allow you to be placed in a position where you seek the Lord’s presence, provisions, guidance and promises.

I encourage you to stop stressing yourself out- losing sleep, being weary, anxious, worried, depressed and sad. Don’t try to understand the ways of God because it is impossible for you to understand His decisions and ways! (Romans 11:33). The natural man cannot understand the things of God. For God’s ways are higher than mans, they are past finding out and this is why we must make a decision to trust our all knowing God.

Be Obedient
The bible says “obedience is better than sacrifice (1 Samuel 15:22)” which tells you a lot about our God. God places significance on obedience. He’ll rather you be obedient to His instruction than for you to offer sacrificial praises, money offerings, and the likes.

Why do I bring obedience up? When God gives you instructions and trusting God when you don’t understand becomes difficult, you need to be reminded to be obedient and to trust God. There are blessings that follow a person who is obedient just as there are curses that follows a person who is disobedient.

God Will Lead You
The LORD had said to Abram, “Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you” (Genesis 12:1).

God told Abraham to leave everything he knew; everything he was familiar with and to enter into the unfamiliar. God told him to go into a land which he will show him which meant Abraham didn’t know where he was going; He only had the instruction of the Lord to depend on. Abraham could have easily said, “God, where will I go; what will I eat and drink”, but he didn’t. He chose to trust God and be obedient and as Christians we must learn to do the same.

“It was by faith that Abraham obeyed when God called him to leave home and go to another land that God would give him as his inheritance. He went without knowing where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8).

As much as we would like God to give us “what where when and how” upfront all the time (all in one shot), God does not operate like that. Sometimes, God will place you in a situation where you have to trust Him and He’ll give you piece by piece as you obey and trust Him.

As a person whose been in this situation, I will tell you that this only increases your faith as you learn to walk by faith and not by sight. Remember, faith is trusting God even when you don’t understand his plan for your life.

Trusting God When You Don’t Understand: Final Words

Joyce Meyer, an International Speaker and a New York Times bestselling author, published a devotional book titled, “Trusting God Day by Day: 365 Daily Devotions.” In her book, Meyer writes, “begin to think every day, I can handle whatever life hands me. I can do whatever I need to do in life. I am more than a conqueror. I am equal to anything through Him who infuses inner strength into me.”

I don’t know what your story is (your more than welcome to share it below), but I want to encourage you to begin trusting God when you don’t understand what He’s doing in your life. God will give you a piece to the puzzle as you learn to step out on faith, obey, and trust Him.

Don’t let the devil fool you into believing that you’re taking a step backwards in life or that you’ll never make it out of this situation; because you will. What you’re going through is temporary.

Encourage yourself in the Lord daily; read His word; pray without ceasing and seek His face. The next time you find yourself in a position where you are stressed and worried about what God is doing in your life, remember to:

Consider the Source
Trust the Lord
Be Obedient
Trust God to Lead You
Prayer for Trusting God When You Don’t Understand Life
Heavenly Father,

I ask that you place within me your obedient spirit so that I may be obedient to your instruction. Help me Lord to walk by faith and not by sight. I don’t understand what you’re doing in my life, but I make a decision to trust you God.

In this season, I ask that you place within me your spirit of joy, peace and rest. Give me joy; peace and rest to endure all that comes my way. Right now, I make a decision to trust you Lord because I know that you’re in control of my life even when my life seems to be out of control.

Lord, I thank you for clarity, guidance, provision and strength. I pray and ask for these things in Jesus name; Amen.

Pray and stay in the word of God. There is strength for you there. Trusting God when you don’t understand is difficult, especially when you’re scared, afraid, and don’t know what to do. However, no matter how afraid you are or how difficult times may be, trust God completely and be obedient to His instructions. Trust God’s timing and know He’s working this situation out for your good. Be blessed and encouraged in Jesus name.

The Picture You See First In This Personality Test Reveals Your True Personality And Dominant Traits

To begin, take a look at this picture. As soon as your eye finds the first image, scroll down to find out what it says about you.

If you saw…

1. A stallion

Horses, in general, and stallions, in particular, represent a driving life force that spurs you on to follow your passion. They are also a sign of someone who is capable of maintaining a balance between following their instinctive nature while behaving in a tamed, socially appropriate manner.

In addition, those who see the stallion first are likely to embody a strong sexual energy with a fondness for excitement.

2. A rooster

If you first noticed the rooster, you are someone who shares their enthusiasm for showing off their magnificence to full advantage.

Don’t mistake that meaning you are cocky, however. Given their known dependability each and every morning, roosters have been lauded for centuries by the Chinese for embodying “the five virtues — civil responsibility, marital fidelity, courage, kindness, and confidence.”

You may love to strut your stuff, but you bring plenty to the table to back it all up.

3. A crab

The presence of a crab is said to be intended to remind us of several things:

That we can’t always take a direct path to achieve our goals, but that we must be willing to step sideways and gather a new perspective. That community is vital for growth, but that we also need to self-reflective time in isolation. That we must know when to move and when to withdraw.

If the crab jumped out at you, you are most likely to be someone who is shy and highly sensitive, but who also loves to explore and uses their time in seclusion wisely and for the benefit of both yourself and others.

4. A praying mantis

Those who first spot the preying mantis have a deeply rooted need for peace, quiet and calm.

These are people who have been overwhelmed to such an extent by chaos and noise from outside of themselves that they have no choice but to learn how to tune out the external so they can return to their wise inner truth.

You are someone who has had both the strength and motivation to learn how to take your time in order to live your like at the pace that works best for you. And while you are unlikely to make any significant moves in life with giving it careful consideration, you are also clever and insightful enough to reach quick decisions as necessary.

5. A wolf

Wolves show themselves to us in times when we need to be reminded that while we are civilized creatures, we all occasionally need to honor the impulses of our wild inner spirit. If the wolf caught your eye, you are a highly organized individual who understands the balance between harmony and discipline.

At your best, your ability to trust your keen insights makes you capable of forming quick and strong emotional attachments to others. You are powerfully intelligent and you maintain a loyal network of friends and family.

At your worst, can become rigid and competitive due to your strong need for structure and boundaries.

6. A dog

If you spotted the dog, you’ve likely been in need of a remember to be kind, loyal and truthful to yourself.

You may recently have been neglecting to honor your worth with the self-respect you are due. You have a huge spirit and capacity for love, and because of this, it extremely difficult for anyone to fully break your spirit.

In addition, you have a fondness for serving others, and a loving, gentle and protective quality radiates from all that you say and do.

7. An eagle

Someone who sees the eagle right away is in need of reconnection with their spiritual path. You need to tune back into the messages of your heart so you can fling the doors open wide and soar on your way to your intended purpose.

When you are in tune with the eagle in your nature, you are balanced in all dimensions of this world. You are free as the air, stand firmly on solid ground and stay near enough to water to remain well nourished.

You are someone highly capable of lofty undertakings required for inner-growth while remaining solidly grounded in the day-to-day realities of life.

8. A butterfly

People who spy the butterfly are those with a gift for graciously embracing change and coming out on the other side only the better for everything they endure.

You accept things as they come and quickly shift to float through whatever comes your way. You also have a highly-sensitive side and can be easily upset by the slightest change in environment.

That said, your beauty shines brightly at every single moment, and you bring joy to everyone lucky enough to encounter you.

9. A dove

The dove is the eternal symbol of peace, so if this glorious bird first caught your eye, you are well aware that sometimes the best way to achieve what you want in this world is to stretch out your wings and surrender to the knowledge that the wind will carry you home as long as you have the courage to take the initial leap forward.

People who see the dove first are some of the most gentle and giving in the world. They exude a quality of innocence that attracts many — too many at times. You must be careful not to let your generous nature signal to others that you can be taken of advantage of in any way.
