Pray Before

We can trust God.

One of my favorite songs right now is Do It Again by Elevation Worship. The lyrics include:

Waiting for change to come
Knowing the battle’s won
For You have never failed me yet
Your promise still stands
Great is Your faithfulness, faithfulness
I’m still in Your hands
This is my confidence, You’ve never failed me yet

As uncertain as life is, there is much we can be certain about, including God’s promises and character. We have to be careful not to distort or misunderstand them in ways that trick us into thinking God is not who he says he is or isn’t doing what we thought he promised. Our misunderstandings don’t define who God is.

When we know God well, when we’re humble enough to seek him with honesty, we find a confidence in him that is an unshakable foundation. It’s not our faith that is unshakable but it is God himself.

Get honest with him and with yourself, no matter how long the process might take. The confidence you will find in him is worth the time and effort.

Pray before he provides. Confide as you build confidence. Let him reveal his promises as he fulfills them through his faithfulness.
