“God is more interested in our trust than our understanding.” (source unknown)
OK, whoever said this last week on the radio in my car isn’t really unknown, he’s just unknown to me because I can’t remember his name. If you know who it was, let me know and I’d be happy to give him credit.
But in the meantime, I’m going to savor his words.
How amazingly and simply true. God is more interested in my trust than in my understanding of my circumstances and what He is doing in my life. He’s not going to be impressed with a detailed analysis of things from my perspective. He’s not going to be impressed with my ability to process events and challenges and resulting “ah-ha” moments.
My trust in the absence of “ah-ha” moments is what He’s asking for. It’s easier to attempt to understand rather than to trust. But I’m willing to try trusting.
Because that’s what He’s more interested in.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. Jeremiah 17:7
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man who trusts in You! Psalm 84:12
