Why does it seem that there are times in our lives when we fail to trust in God? We know His promises concerning His people. We know His track record – Infinity to 0 – He has never left us, never forsaken us – he’s never slack concerning His promises. Yet, when something happens in our lives to take us for a loop – we suddenly forget God’s Word and His ability to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or think! We ARE the children of Israel!
The children of Israel constantly moved in a perpetual cycle – obeying, trusting, forgetting, sinning! They would obey and then do their own thing, forgetting their commitment to the Lord, which would result in sin and then they would come running back for deliverance! Don’t we understand that there is never a day when the Lord says, “Oooh, that took me by surprise…..or what am I going to do now? He is Omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent – He is never caught off guard – He DOES have EVERYTHING under control!!!
Whatever cycle you find yourself in that seems to get you away from trusting in God – back away from it. Trust God with all your heart and lean NOT to your own understanding but in ALL your ways acknowledge Him and He WILL direct your path!
He that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep, so since He’s going to be up already – you go to sleep and trust Him to work it out!
