Today’s Devo selection:

TRUSTING GOD

And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.

– Genesis 21:1
“You have to be kidding me. You want me to do what?” I asked my father as a wry smirk came across his face. “Just trust me,” was his reply.
Trust, it’s not something that is easily done. Sometimes it means letting go of what you believe, what you feel is rational, and putting it in someone else’s control. It means letting things leave your control, and having hope that the person [or thing] you are trusting in comes through.
Of course, there are easier times to have trust. It seems a lot easier to trust God after winning a million dollars, or getting a new job, or having something good happen to you… but it seems so much harder to trust Him when things aren’t going right.
Sometimes we find ourselves acting like Sarah. We know that God has promised to take care of us, but looking at the situation we almost doubt that He is able. Like Sarah, when we hear that good news is coming, we find ourselves sarcastically laughing. (Genesis 18:12-14)
I’ve always wondered what Sarah thought of that laugh after she knew she was pregnant. I’ve always wondered how foolish she felt, for doubting God.
Because no matter how chaotic things appear to be, or how much we are struggling, God is right there with us. And while we may not always be able to depend on our jobs, or our banks, or even our government, we can always depend on God. Because God not only keeps His word, just as He did with Sarah and Abraham, but nothing can stop God from keeping His word. (Job 42:2)
Today, what struggles do you face? What challenges are in your life? And most importantly, where are you putting your hope? (Romans 5:2-5)
