What would happen if you constantly lived your life in fear? What if worry consumed your every thought and action? The answer: defeat. You would be living a defeated life, which is not what God desires for you. Uncertainty can cause fear and worry, but what counteracts those emotions?
Read 2 Samuel 15:24-26. Pay close attention to verse 26.
What was David’s reaction to his current situation?
Was he trusting God or giving into his fear and worry? Explain.
When you are faced with a life crisis, what is your response? Why?
Do you trust God to get you through it? Why or why not?
How have you exhibited trust in God during tough times?
How have you tried to fix things yourself rather than trust God during tough times?
David completely trusted God’s plan for his life. Though his future was extremely uncertain, he understood that God knew what was best. David showed great faith in his decision. He was ready to embrace whatever the Lord had in store for him.
Uncertainty is a part of life. We never know what the future holds, but we know who does. God sees the big picture and knows what is best for us. Even in hard times, you must remain strong and dependent upon God for guidance and direction. There will be times when it seems all hope is lost, but never lose faith. Hold firm to what you know is true. Trust the God who has never deserted you and never will. God has an amazing plan for your life. Trust Him to get you where He wants you.
However, if He should say, “I do not delight in you,” then here I am—He can do with me whatever pleases Him.” —2 Samuel 15:26
