Our God is so compassionate, and so full of love for us, that He delights in preparing our hearts for tribulation lurking just outside our vision.
A door opens. Joy and hope pour out of all the openness. Suddenly the door slams in the face. The placard reads, “confusion.” There is little to no understanding of what has gone awry.
But God is there to gently remind us of His spoken Word, to feed us the very meat He had prepared and marinating in our hearts all day.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
With feet firmly planted, peace comsumes, trust explodes the heart.
Abba, thank You for preparing the heart. Thank you for being our Protector and our Sheild, our Rock and our Fortress. Your ways are always good. We can safely place our trust in You. Thank you for both open and closed doors. Direct our paths. Where You lead we’ll follow, rejoicing and continually praising Your holy name. You are so worthy!!! Amen.
In love and trust in Him, Samantha Grace
