Trusting comes so easily during a crisis time! It is much more difficult to trust God when everything is going smoothly since we can be lulled into a stupor of thinking we are self-sufficient. That is when we should be depending even more on God. Often you may hear people say they work better during a crisis. That is due to the fact they know they need God! Actually, He cares just as much about us as we take tiny steps. Psalm 62:8 states “Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.” That verse doesn’t say “in times of trouble” but all times. Today, I will lean upon Him for everything.
Recently, I was thinking of how a baby chick pecks out of the shell. Actually, the mama chicken could break open the egg from the outside but doesn’t for two reasons. The first is that the chick could be injured and the second is that while the chick is pecking, the neck muscles are being strengthened.
And it dawned on me while praying with a challenge, that I was trusting God and building spiritual muscles.
Isaiah 40:30 states “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.”
