Hindsight is 50/50

I don’t always learn from the past. Though, I wish I did. I carry around with me daily, in my heart—well, it is my heart—that God performs miracles, so I should have big huge gleaming faith all the time. He healed my heart of a giant blockage. I felt the healing, and I saw it on extensive expensive scientific medical tests. There is no doubt. The blockage was there. We asked specifically for God to heal it. And then it was gone. Healed. So why do I fret and ache, and bring anguish on myself when a difficult situation arises? That’s no 20/20 hindsight, I tell you what. I have been hearing about having faith is not just faith in God, but faith in His character. I heard it in the book I am currently reading by Max Lucado, ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING. And I read about in a newsletter from a faithful missionary I have the honor of supporting. God’s character. I KNOW God is faithful and good. I know that about Him. So why do I fret? Am I thick-headed as well as thick-hearted? As I have learned in my 20+ years as a follower of Christ, when trouble comes, cover with the Word of God. (BONUS TIP: Look for the verse that jumps off the page or screen at you…that’s the work of the Holy Spirit directly for you.) Today’s verse for me (and hopefully for you too):

Psalm 138:7 New American Standard Bible (NASB):

“Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;

You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies,

And Your right hand will save me.”
