When in Doubt, Trust God’s Goodness

I read a prayer today from Jesus Creed which I cannot help but share with you:

O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

As humans, we have this tendency to doubt and question God and his plans for our lives during tough times. I have realized through the trials that I have faced that most of the time, there is really no point trying to understand how God is working in my life. The best thing for me to do is trust God’s goodness, recall all the ways that he has shown his love to me and cling to his unfailing promises.

When in doubt, trust God’s goodness word and recall that

• God is wise and all-knowing.

• God is good.

• God loves you and he is always on your side!
