TRUST THE LORD WITH THE UNKNOWN

Mar 6, 2024

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God will keep certain things to Himself although they are part of His plans for your life because He knows you cannot handle them. That is why we live and walk by faith, trusting Him with the unknown. (Deuteronomy 29:29, 2 Corinthians 5:7)

1 Corinthians 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.

God is not going to reveal to you everything (look at Joseph’s life). He will only show you part of the picture and ask you to trust Him with the rest.

If you know everything then you do not need faith. It is only God who knows everything and the way you need to take.  (Exodus 33:14)

John 10:28-29 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

If there is anyone who can be trusted, is Jehovah God. Can you trust Him with your life and tomorrow? He’s the only one who sees your life ten years from now. You are most safe in His hands.

However much, no one can take you out of the Father’s hand, you can take yourself out off His plan by making detours.

As men at times, we think God is late or too early but how can you doubt the infinite intelligence, the Omniscient, and Omnipotent God? If there is any work for you to do, work on your belief system.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Look at Abraham, he hoped against hope; he convinced himself that God was able to do what He had promised.  This is a place where you’re praying and seeking should come from. As long as you stay in God’s plan and hold on by faith, everything will fall into place. If there is anything to doubt, doubt your doubts but trust God. (Romans 4:18)

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

For you to finish this race correctly, your eyes must be fixed on Jesus and on His Word alone. Do not pay attention to your feelings however real they may be. The Word has the power to transform everything in and around you. Keep your eyes on the Word of God which is His plan for your life. Trust Him with the unknown as you work on the known.

Genesis 12:1-4

Abraham left his father’s house and nation and began to journey without knowing where he was going. Most of us want the whole picture before we leave, but that is not how God works. Abraham journeyed with God step by step and that’s how God wants us to live. (Isaiah 51:2)

Do not be encumbered by tomorrow, tomorrow will take care of itself, deal with now because faith is now. That is how you will progress from glory to glory.  (Matthew 6:34).

The Life of Faith deals with the invisible; the unseen dimension. That is where we draw our strength from.

(2 Corinthians 4:18)

God is no respecter of persons, He is interested in your heart because with the heart you believe. (Romans 2:11)

Do not be deceived by the external, keep your spiritual eyes on the Master and watch what He will do with you.  Trust Him with the unknown, He will never disappoint you. (Romans 5:5)
