What You Expect

Life can be full of complications – difficult and problematic, assignments we would like to avoid. We often assume the worst when facing conditions like these. We tend to overflow with dread when facing challenges.

But Paul learned that God is with us even in the most troublesome situations. Regardless of how things appear, we can trust that He is working everything together for good.

This wasn’t a theory but something Paul knew from experience. He had witnessed God’s sovereignty through many kinds of experiences. He had been in jail, “faced death again and again.” He had been beaten, stoned, and shipwrecked, and confronted countless dangers (2 Corinthians 11:23-27).

Yet he knew that he could trust God even during situations that seemed dangerous. Even when there seemed to be no hope.

That same promise is true for you. No matter what you go through, the Bible urges you to trust God. Not to give in to negative thinking or feel defeated. No matter how things appear on the surface, be positive, confident, and filled with faith.

What are you facing today? Don’t allow your heart to be dominated by fear or worry. And don’t be discouraged. Confess the Bible’s promises. Stand on God’s Word. Don’t give in to appearances or expect defeat. No matter what you go through, thank God for His faithfulness. Trust Him. Have faith that He is working everything together for good.
