It seems that it is almost impossible to find the righteousness in the world we are living in. It is during these moments that I’m reminded that I have no control at all over the things that are happening in my life and the circumstances that are occurring in my life. It is also the time for me to acknowledge I need to heed God’s guidance and trust on Him no matter the turmoil around us.
It is when we feel helpless and hopeless and that we have done everything just to avail to nothing, we are humbled and God will then whisper to our hearts once again and tell us to commit our way to the Lord; trust in him and He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun (Psalm 37:5).
We can choose to lean on our own strength and understanding, but God is faithful and His promises are true. It is only when we choose to trust in Him and His promises then life is changed. It is when we claim His promises and live in obedience to Him then His joy will stay within us.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
