When It's Hard to Trust God in the Chaos, Go to Him Anyway.
Updated: Nov 2, 2020
What do we do when our faith doesn’t feel big enough?
When the fear feels too heavy for us to actually see hope?
What do we do when God’s promises feel far away or even untrue?
What do we do when all signs are pointing to something that says, we are on our own, and God’s not here?
What do we do when we don’t want to pray, and we just want to take things into our own hands?
I think at some point, each of us with experience trust issues with God.
Perhaps that time is right now?
After all, look around. I'm sure you've been thinking about what's happening and what could happen.
I want to remind you that God can handle your questions and doubts.
He’d rather have you go to Him crying, “where are you?” or cry out, "help me" than have you completely walk the other way from Him.
He isn’t fragile. At all.
He can handle the tears, the fear, the doubts, all of it. He knows what's scary for you.
I’m not going to tell you that going to God means you will never have fearful thoughts again.
I’m just saying that 100% of the time God will meet you right where you are.
So your choice is to stay in the mindset you are in right now, or.. at least choose to try.
Try to go to Him. Like really go to Him.
You might as well do it as honestly as you can. He already knows what you are thinking. He knows your fears and doubts.
But try, friend.
Bring your burdens to Him.
Talk to Him about your fears.
Get into His word to hear from Him.
Actively choose to worship Him even in the storm of your thoughts and fears.
Give Him the chance to meet you where you are.
It might be messy, and you might really wrestle with Him.
But He isn’t fragile.
The thing about seeking God and meeting Him is you will experience a shift.
It might be a shift in thought, a new sense of peace or maybe even just a little more faith.
But you will not leave your time with the Lord empty-handed or empty-hearted.
He’s so much bigger than the circumstances you are in. He is so much bigger than everything in this world combined.
Let Him show you.
