Where Is Your Trust and Confidence?

on May 14, 2014

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.  ~Jeremiah 17:7

I recently had a problem related to my home. It wasnt insurmountable, but when it first happened, I was fearful, imagining the worst. Thats a part of my nature that I try to control, not always successfully.

Honestly, I dont like dealing with house issues. When they occur, my first response is usually to throw my hands up and tell God I should have a husband to deal with these things. Its easy to feel like theres something wrong with me or that Im being punished because God hasnt sent my Mr. Right yet.

Jeremiah 17:7 came to me shortly after this house problem — a vivid reminder that God is with me even through this extended journey of singleness. Granted God cant get down and dirty to deal with an issue like I had, but He is there.

My downfall was that I placed my trust in a non-existent husband when I should have been trusting in the Lord. God wants me to come to Him when stuff happens and trust Him. I fussed and fretted and got all worked up. Then I got quiet before the Lord and asked for His help.

Things worked out in the end. And I was reminded that even though I am without a husband, I am never alone. My trust and confidence needs to be in the Lord and not in a husband who isnt even part of my life at this time.

    So easy to do, trusting in the wrong person/thing. Only God truly knows the answers and HAS the right answer for us.
