Focus Verse: For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. 2 Chronicles 16:9a (NKJV)
“But I’m just trying to understand why You think this is anything I can handle? When did I EVER show You that I was strong enough for this?”
I had questions that needed answers. I wrestled with this literally ALL weekend long. I felt like Jacob. I told God I wasn’t letting up until I got an answer. Then the first part of 2 Chronicles 16:9 was more real than it had ever been in my life.
A loyal heart, that’s all it takes for God to trust you. Trust you to endure pain. Trust you with challenges. Trust you in unfamiliar places. Trust you to believe what He said and not what you see. But most of all, trust you to give Him glory in ALL things.
If you have ever asked God, “Why me? Why would You trust me with this? Why do You think this is something I can handle?” Just remember, your loyalty to Him showed Him just how strong you really are.
Be encouraged, God can trust you with things that others would have made Him look bad going through!
Prayer: Father God, How excellent is Your name! I thank You for everything You have allowed in my life. You formed me and created me in my mother’s womb. You know me better than I know myself. Thank You for revealing to me that my strength has nothing to do with me, but everything to do with trusting You. In the mighty name of Jesus, amen!
