Trusting God even when you can’t understand His ways and your season.
In an episode of Let’s Get Real, Nancy Goudie shared how she trusted the Lord after her husband’s death. In 2016, her husband died after fighting for his life for 20 months. According to Nancy, it was a season full of miracles but they weren’t able to appreciate it because they were asking for a specific miracle.
Many people from around the world are praying for her husband’s healing. However, they didn’t receive the miracle they were expecting. His death came unexpectedly because everyone thought that he was getting better.
“We had always said in our life we will do whatever God tells us to do, we’ll go wherever God tells us to go,” Nancy recalled.
Even We Can’t Understand
But the moment he died, Nancy can’t understand God’s ways.
“How do I reconcile that with what I was believing for, I didn’t understand what had happened and that was like, God where are You in all this? I mean I prayed for real, I prayed for him to be raised from the dead, I did everything, I rebuked the spirit of death, I did everything you’re taught to do and it didn’t make any difference.”
Still, in those moments, she chose to trust God. She trusted the Lord because she knows who He is and how good and faithful He is even though the circumstances tells a different story.
“Lord, I don’t understand this, I do not understand what’s just happened, but I want to tell you, God, even though I don’t understand that, I’m going to trust You.”
There are things in life that we don’t and never will understand but we have a choice. A choice to still trust Him or doubt Him.
