This week I’ve continued to think about wisdom and how we acquire it for the decisions in our lives. Maybe it’s not about how to schedule our time. Maybe instead our decision is about a job, where to live, whether to sell a house, how to parent a child, etc. There are so many areas in our lives that demand wisdom.
As I’ve thought and prayed about it this week, I wonder if the key to Godly wisdom is trust in God.
Do I truly trust that He wants my best even if it looks different than I imagined? If I trust Him, then I can rely on His wisdom, because I know Him.
Dictionary.com lists seven definitions for hope. The first two really caught my attention:
“Then trust Me.”
Do I rely on the surety of the Lord? Do I believe He will come through this time? Or do I believe His provision, favor, and care for me ended? Do I have confidence and hope in what He will do?
Yes. A thousand times He has shown Himself faithful. Over and over without a doubt, even when I don’t understand the whys, I know He is faithful. I can trust Him. I can rely on Him. I can trust that what concerns me concerns Him. I can rest in the knowledge that He can handle this.
Even if I have to remind myself a million times a day, I can rest in the truth that He sees, He know, He cares.
