Trusting God does not mean not having questions and doubts

Trusting God does not mean that we will never have questions, doubts, or fears. It doesn’t mean we won’t be depressed or discouraged.  Trusting God does not mean we won’t have to take anti-depressants or get sick. 

We cannot simply turn off the natural thoughts and feelings that arise when we face difficult circumstances. 

Author Ken Sande is right:  “Trusting God means that in spite of our questions, doubts, and fears we draw on his grace and continue to believe that he is loving, that he is in control, and that he is always working for our good. Such trust helps us to continue doing what is good and right, even in difficult circumstances.”

So, trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.”  (Proverbs 3:5-6)
