We've been talking a lot in church about how God's plan is bigger than us. About how every single minute detail of our lives may not work out to our advantage. About how God sees the big picture and He is working to accomplish His will...not ours.
After much discussion the last 2 weeks in our small group, one of the ladies asked, "OK. But what does this look like on a Tuesday?"
I thought that was an excellent question.
What about it? What if, on Tuesday, you are in a bad place? What if things are NOT going the way you've been hoping and praying they would go? What if you cannot for the life of you see how God is going to work out your situation? What if things have spun totally and completely out of (your) control? How does "I understand God is up to bigger things than me" look on a regular day?
We didn't have time to dive into scripture when she first posed that question. My immediate response was, "It looks like obeying anyway." We know God is in control. We know the things He has asked of us. Even on Tuesday when things are looking bad, will we continue to obey?
I think of the old hymn Trust and Obey. Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
But that isn't scripture.
So what do you think? How does our understanding that God is in control and we aren't look on a day to day basis? How are we to act or react when things are looking bad and we can't understand how any of it will work out?
What does faith on Tuesday look like?
