JULY 12 – DON’T

July 12                        Isaiah 55:8-9

8 “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. 9 For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. 

DON’T

Don’t worry.  There are times we will not understand what is going on and will not be able to piece it into a good scenario.  Remember trust the Lord, don’t worry and He will do it.  The Lord is on our side and He is working things out for our good. Sometimes it simply takes time to work out those things.  I’m reminded of a friend that prayed with me several times a week twenty years ago. He had lost his family, his business, his standing in the community and his plea to the Father was to remake his life. It’s taken twenty years and many heartaches but he is now a respected community leader and everyone in his family turns to him for help and advice in times of trouble.
