Today you should read: Job 23
God loves you and me with a love that cannot even be described in words. He has plans for us that are beyond our wildest dreams. He desires an intimate relationship with us – He wants to be our Abba – our Daddy and our Friend.
Even though all of these things are true and we believe them in our heart, we may not always feel them in our head. Sometimes, like Job in this chapter, we want God to explain to us what He’s doing. It doesn’t seem fair. If I could only sit down with Him and talk…
Often we feel like this, God seems strangely distant. He’s not moved – but we feel like He has. We search our hearts and lives for sin – but we come up empty on unconfessed, undealt with iniquity. We’re in the Word – our prayers are desperate – but we still feel the canyon between us.
Sometimes this is just how it is. It’s a fact of our humanity. We must not allow our feelings to affect our confidence in our Creator. He never changes.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!
What we must remember are the words of a song from 25 or so years ago…
Trust His Heart
All things work for our good though sometimes we don’t see how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two sometimes blind us to the truth
Our Father knows what’s best for us His ways are not our own
So when your pathway grows dim and you just don’t see him,
Remember your never alone
God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When don’t see his plan
When you can’t trace his hand
Trust His Heart
He sees the master plan He holds the future in his hand,
So don’t live as those who have no hope, ALL our hope is found in him.
We see the present clearly He sees the first and last
And like a tapestry He’s weaving you and me, To someday be just like Him

“God is too good to be unkind. He is too wise to be confused. If I cannot trace His hand, I can always trust His heart.” ―Charles H. Spurgeon
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding… Proverbs 3:5
