There is a time to make a move and there is a time to sit back and let God handle it all, but how to do we define the two?
God is protecting us from things we cannot see.
As said in Ecclesiastes 3:11, ” He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. And when He calls us to sit back and not move, God is protecting us from things we cannot see. And if you don’t know when God is telling you to trust him, ask Him! This understanding requires you to read more of his the bible for you to understand what he is speaking to you.
God has higher thinking than we do.
Besides, you may not be mentally or emotionally prepared for what “looks” like an exciting opportunity. If you trust God in handling the small things, you must trust him in the big things too. We have to lean on his understanding, for God’s has higher thinking than we do. He can turn a bad situation into good in a matter of seconds, but if you cannot trust with the gift he has given you how can he help you?
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, Have never forsaken those who seek you. – Psalm 9:10
This week, ask God how you can trust him in every area of your life. Ask him to not only to help you when problems arise but to help you when things are going well. God will help us in the good times and bad, but our trust issues can stand in the way. Ponder on this scripture this week:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3: 5-6
