I replied, “But my work seems so useless! I have spent my strength for nothing and to no purpose. Yet I leave it all in the Lord ’s hand; I will trust God for my reward.”
Isaiah 49:4 NLT
I am in a season where I cannot understand any of the commandments God has given me. Not a single one. There seems to be no logical reason why he has me staying where I am. In this season I feel that what I’m doing has no purpose, the hard work and dedication I have is unnoticed, and I have become more weary as time goes on. “God are you sure you want me here?”
Everytime I have asked hebresponds with yes. The things God tells you to do are not going to be logical when he is supernatural. But, when you know that HE is good and is FOR you, you can trust in his commands even when they are uncomfortable, painful, and do not make any sense sense. While I feel that all the hard work I have put in has went unnoticed, God has simply reminded me that praise and reward come from him.
If you don’t understand what is going on or why God has you in this place, understand that his intentions are always good. Man may not see the tears you have cried, the hard work and dedication you have put in, or the prayers and praise you have spoken…but God has never taken his focus off of you.
It takes faith and endurance to stay where God has you in a season of trials. But, his promises remind us that the suffering now does not even compare to the glory that is coming!
Be encouraged that he hears your every prayer and is working on your behalf. God is for you and in his timing you will see his beautiful plan amongst the suffering you once endured. He is faithful to his word, without fail he will rescue you, his promises shall come to pass.
