Max Lucado: A Reason to Sit Tight (July 23)

By Max Lucado - UpWords Ministries On July 23, 2013

God knows more about life than we do! And aren't we glad He does? Be honest. Are we glad He says "no" to what we want and "yes" to what we need? Not always. If we ask for a new marriage, and He says honor the one you've got, we aren't happy. If we ask for healing, and He says learn through the pain, we aren't happy.

When God doesn't do what we want, it's not easy.  Never has been.  Never will be. But faith is the conviction that God knows more than we do about this life and He will get us through it. We need to hear that God is in control. We need to hear it is not over until He says so. We need to hear life's mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out. They are simply a reason to-sit tight!
