When Times Are Tough

We must trust God.  He knows what is best for us and for those around us.  His ways are indeed higher than our ways.  His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.  His understanding is complete.  We only see a tiny part of the big picture, like trying to understand an elephant when all you can see is the tip of his tail.  You may have a great view of that tail, but it doesn’t give you much of an understanding of the elephant.  Our view of life is so small.  We must trust God, because He knows it all.  He made the elephant.

All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)

God, please help us to trust You.  Thank You that You know all and love us and are merciful, and that Your mercy endures for ever.  Help us to bear what we need to bear.  Please comfort us, Lord.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
