Ever have days when one problem is solved, another takes its place? It’s like you can’t catch a break before the next trial hits. And you wonder, “what in the world is going on?” Where is God on a chaotic day? Well, He’s where He always is, right next to us!
When I have days like this when everything is going wrong, I have to give it all over to The Lord. My hurt, my frustration and my confusion.
And the thing is He wants us to come to Him desperate. That doesn’t mean He wants us broken and battered, but He wants us to be REAL with Him. He wants us to need Him as much as we need air and water. And He will bring order to chaos.
No matter how long we pray over something, no matter how hurt we are, no matter how long it’s been, the Lord hears every cry, sees every tear, and honors every hope in Him. All we have to do is:
It may be hard to do, I know. But, when I look at all the times I’ve taken Motrin believing that two tablets would cure my headache or break my fever or taken cough medicine for healing why can’t I believe in a God who has all power and might?
Let’s take that little belief, wrap it up and apply it to the Lord who hears and feels our pain. He will come and He will answer.
AND there’s a time and place where it all will make sense. I look forward to that day!
But in the meantime, if your world seems to be in chaos, talk to the Lord about it and then trust Him. Trust Him that He knows exactly what He’s doing and you will come out on the other side stronger and better than before.
