Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
In times of difficulty, when things don’t make sense, the most powerful thing we can do is to simply purpose in our hearts that we will trust God no matter what. When we know that His plans for us are for good, and that in fact all things work together for good for those who love God, we can then acknowledge that in each and every moment, the Lord is guiding and directing our steps. We can rest assured that our challenges merely become stepping stones that are shaping us and preparing us for our magnificent destiny in the Lord.
