“Trust me. It’s what Lucifier refused to do.” God whispered to me as we walked out of Carle Clinic. After surgery, Jerry’s prostate cancer numbers are rising and radiation is needed. “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him,” Job said. That’s been the scripture through this process. It’s all about trust, isn’t it?
Trusting God’s involvement.
Trusting God’s passionate love for us.
Trusting that his purposes are worth what they are costing us.
When a spouse leaves, trusting that Jesus will never forsake us.
When a child dies, trusting, somehow, some way, that God is good.
When we lose a job or a house, trusting that the we have not lost the Holy Spirit.
Lucifer refused to trust God’s character and purposes. One of our purposes is to demonstrate to Lucifer that God is a good God. That the supreme value of the universe is to submit ourselves to him. Ephesians 3:10.
Father, may your kingdom come, may your will be done, here, on earth. May we, by the faith you give, persevere in trust.
