Title: Trust His Heart
By Wong King Wai
Matt 6:34 – Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
When I was a teen and young adult, I worried a lot. I was always worrying about studies, relationships, decisions, the things I said or didn’t say, or the actions I did or didn’t do. Everything was just a big mess of worry and uncertainty. Over time, I realised that I was putting a lot of my energies in worrying about things I had no control over.
The pandemic for many of us has given us a lot to worry about. Many of us have friends who have passed away, lost their jobs, or have pay cuts. There are also those who are far from home and stuck without family or friends to provide support and encouragement. Thanks to technology, communication is not hindered but the lack of physical meetings is taking a toll.
All these things that are happening are not trivial or mundane to God. He sees the struggles we are going through and He knows our worries. While we do not know why this virus continues to linger, we know who is in control of all things. And because He is in control, we can choose not to worry, as worry can lead to stress that could lead to illnesses.
There is an old song which I hope to sing in church one day, called “Trust His Heart”. The chorus is very encouraging:
“God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When don’t see His plan
When you can’t trace His hand
Trust His Heart”
While it may be hard to understand during these challenging times the will of God, take time to remember how He has come through for you. Remind yourself that your life is in His hands where He will never let you go. And rest and find comfort in His grace and love that never wavers.
PRAYER: My Father in heaven. Thank You for sending your son Jesus to die for me. Thank You for seeing me through tough times. Thank You for always looking out for me even when I was not faithful or particularly good. It is by grace I have been saved and grace will sustain me. Help me to worry less and trust You more, Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
