The more we learn to trust God, the better we get at allowing Him to do what He does best. We develop the skill of getting out of His way. Many times when we get anxious over something our tendency is to take matters into our own hands and try to force things to be as we see them. This can put us in a position of competing with God instead of cooperating with Him. Our goal should always be to seek Him and discover how He sees the matter so we can be part of His solution and not our own.

How can we have joy at all times, even when things aren’t going well for us? That’s where trust and faith come in. God is always at work in our lives and if we will cooperate with Him, seek Him in everything and listen for His direction we’ll be better able to approach even the most difficult circumstances with joy. If God’s love for us is perfect, and it is, then we can know that somewhere down the road we will be able to see redemption and even appreciate today’s difficulty.
