Difficult Times Call For Difficult Trust

Posted by tmoney80 on September 24, 2008

Many of you know that my wife and I have been going through some extremely difficult financial times. God has taught me so much in these times, not because He finally spoke to me, but because I finally am listening. I can also see how God has changed me for the better in recent months…that’s always a cool realization. But here is something my mom emailed me this morning, thought I would share. Pretty powerful!

F. B. Meyer on writing about how Abraham lied about Sarah being his sister said this:

How much better would it have been for Abraham to have thrown the responsibility back on God, and to have said, “Thou hast brought me here; and Thou must now bear the whole weight of providing for me and mine: here I will stay till I clearly know what Thou wilt have me to do.” If any should read these lines who have come into positions of extreme difficulty, through following the simple path of obedience, let them not look at God through difficulties, as we see the sun shorn of splendour through a fog; but let them look at difficulties through God. Let them put God between themselves and the disasters which threaten them. Let them cast the whole responsibility upon Him. Has He not thus brought you into difficulties, that He may have an opportunity of strengthening your faith, by giving some unexampled proof of His power? Wait only on the Lord, trust also in Him…He will provide.
