You don't have to figure it out

A devotion on trusting God's will and plans

You don't have to try to figure it out ... when God will work it out!

Even when we don’t understand and can’t make sense out of a situation that has no logic, we don't have to stress or bury our heads in the sand.

God understands the intricacies of the human heart and is faithful in all the confusing moments we may face.

 God never said following Christ was going to be easy.

Life can be very complicated.

 In this fleeting life, we have moments of rejoicing and of sorrow, and sometimes they intermingle in a way we can’t understand or ever hope to separate.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die ... a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance ..." – Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, 4

And God doesn’t ask us to. 

He remains faithful to us in those moments—and a thousand more—until the day comes when he will wipe away every tear.

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." – Revelation 21:4  

Stand firm today – trusting the Lord the whole way!
