A few years ago, I attended the funeral of a young woman. During the service, they showed a video of her singing a Babbie Mason song called, “Trust His Heart.” The song expressed these words:
God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don’t understand
When you don’t see His plan
When you can’t trace His hand
Trust His heart
The words of the song evoked tears from everyone at the service.
The Lord’s character is good. He is love. His plans and purposes work together for good – Romans 8:28 reiterate His promise: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
Job could not understand the reality and calamity of his circumstance. Job’s reaction to losing everything surprised me.
“At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.”
In the midst of his circumstance, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.”
I don’t know your current circumstances, but the LORD does. I pray you will be able to sing the words to the song with all of your heart. Like Job, may you be able to fall to the ground humbly in worship – completely trusting God’s motive and heart. May we, like Job, not sin against the LORD by charging Him with wrongdoing.
