LEAN ON, TRUST IN, AND BE CONFIDENT IN ME.
The more challenging your life circumstances, the more you need to affirm—and lean on—your confident trust in Me.
During difficult times, your natural tendency is to rely heavily on your own understanding.
However, your human understanding is not up to this task; it will fail you time and again.
You have every reason to be confident in Me.
I am the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, and I am in charge of every aspect of your life.
Because the world is in such a fallen condition, it may seem as if I'm not in control.
I could end all suffering instantly—by destroying the earth and taking My children Home—but I am waiting to bring many sons and daughters to Glory.
So take heart as you live in this broken world, believing that My eternal purposes are being worked out through your difficulties.
Your troubles are part of My majestic Master Plan, and they are achieving an eternal Glory that far outweighs them all!
