That is the overwhelming question I am getting from God lately. Every single time we begin to lose faith, or stop trusting, God comes through. Things the last few weeks were getting really bad (to us, at least). I basically said to God, “So taking my child away from me forever wasn’t enough? You had to just pile it on by screwing with our finances, our emotions, and everything else?”
God said to me, James, take a breath. Realize who you are talking to. I gave my ONLY son, who died on the cross, not only for your sins, but everyone elses. Yet He did not complain.
Just as of a few days ago, we thought we were going to have to move out and find a new place. I told you we got that a notice, saying that our rent was being increased. The Lord provided once more and we got a phone call, and just like that, Emily got a full-time job for the summer! Man, how petty was I acting? How many times will it take me to understand that God is IN CONTROL. (Bolded and Italicized for emphasis)
Let me repeat that: GOD IS IN CONTROL
As mere mortals it is so easy for us to epitomize our struggles, as we lack the overall perspective. Many times we are given hindsight after the fact, and we see that things were taken care of. Hindsight may be 20/20, but foresight equals faith.
Proverbs 3:5- Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
