Just as we must learn to obey God one choice at a time, we also must learn to trust God one circumstance at a time.
Trusting God is not a matter of my feelings, but of my will. The truth we must believe is that God is sovereign. He carries out His own good purposes without ever being thwarted.
Our first priority in times of adversity is to honor and glorify God by trusting Him.
We tend to make our first priority the gaining of relief from our feelings of heartache, disappointment and frustration. This is a natural desire, and God has promised to give us grace sufficient for our trials and peace for our anxieties.
We honor God by choosing to trust Him when we don’t understand what He is doing or why He has allowed some circumstance.Jerry Bridges, “Trusting God”
