Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
These verses have taken on a new meaning for me lately. I have developed a cataract in my right eye, this is the eye I use to see distances , my contacts are adjusted for this purpose. Since developing this cataract , I’ve had some difficulties; I see double, and lights at night blind me. When I am driving, a car approaching me from a distance looks like two cars, one in my lane. As it gets closer, I can tell it’s only one, but it can be frightening. My brain has to override what my eye is telling me.
It’s the same way sometimes with trusting God. I have been praying for something very tender to my heart. The more I have prayed, the worse the circumstances seemed. One day God brought this verse and my eye problems together for me. Sometimes what I see with my physical eyes looks so wrong, but My Father is using it all for good. I have to override those things I see in the physical, and trust My Heavenly Father is working on my behalf. I cannot trust what I see, I can only trust Him, He is going to do even more than I can imagine.
I have been memorizing Psalm 84, God always uses what I am memorizing and meditating on, to speak to me.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory ; no good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, how blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:11-12
He is good, and He can be trusted, no matter what it ” looks like” right now.
