Yes, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. –Psalm 23:4
We often think of trusting God for things we need or want, but a true relationship of trust in God extends beyond trusting Him just to get something. We need to learn to trust Him through the process of attaining those things we desire.
There was a time in my life when I focused intensely on trusting God for things, saying “I want this, God,” and “I need such-and-such, God.” He began to show me that getting all those things was not the most important issue in my life.
He wanted to teach me how to trust Him enough to walk through situations with stability and a good attitude on a consistent basis. He needed me to learn that He may not always rescue us when we want to get out of circumstances, but He is always with us as we walk through them.
God does not always deliver us from everything when we think He should, but He is always with us. Today, instead of focussing on just the end result, realize that God is with you now. He is near to you, so trust Him to walk with you through the process.
