The Ball is back in our Court (3/3).

When there is a crisis in your life, do you know, do you have who, and where to run to? Do you run to, or from God? Is He your last resort or do you have some other option(s) in your back pocket? Is anyone else bigger than God in your life? Or, will you say like Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him?” (Job 13:15a) Though I don’t understand the picture, nor see clearly, yet will I trust Him. He is the only constant in this ever-changing world.

Our reference and definition of things ought to always be in comparison to Him, who changed not. [Malachi 3:6; James 1:17] Changing things cannot, and will never define our God. Rather, our God gives definition and meaning to the changing circumstances and situations. We might not always understand, but we can always trust. That is all He requires of us. That is why He says,
“Always be joyful. Always keep on praying. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, TLB.
