Hearing Aid

Sometimes our circumstances can be so deafening we lose our spiritual hearing. Nevertheless, daily prayer and studying of His Word will help to steady our souls, and open our hearts up to listening – even when it is something we may not want to hear. God has it all covered by His divine grace. He will never leave us – even in our “I-don’t-know-what-to-do” seasons. Trusting in His character and grace is where we can find solid ground. He uses every occasion to lead us to where we need to be. To trust our situations over our Savior will not yield the same spiritual fruit.To think, if Ananias had trusted in what He knew of the murderer, Saul, he would have never become the Apostle Paul’s defender. Or, what about Joseph? Had he tried to understand the injustice of his circumstance, instead of believing in the goodness of God’s will, he would not have made it to the Palace, and saved lives. Both ordinary men, both called to trust in God, and both used mightily.I am thankful He is the hearing aid my heart needs. He leans in close to whisper in our ear that it will all work out for our good, and His glory. It doesn’t matter if we know how it all works out, it only matters we trust He does. Oh, for the grace to trust Him more…
