Trusting God in Bewilderment

Trusting God In Bewilderment
by Kathleen Shore
“ . . . and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of Man will be
accomplished…” But they understood none of these things . . . Luke 18:31, 34 NASB
As I reflected again on ‘Trust In The Lord’ I was flooded with a lifetime of
remembrances dating clear back to my earliest childhood memories.
They were 
sufferings… filled with God’s divine purpose.
– The miracle story of my physical birth
– The death of my earthly father
– Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis
Just to name a few…
Then a quiet whisper came like a gentle breeze, “Understanding will never bring you
peace. That’s why I have instructed you to trust in Me, not in your understanding… “As I waited in silence for God to bring His light into my thoughts, I began to
recognize that along the way of my journey, in order to be a manifestation of our
Lord Jesus I had to be changed into His likeness, with ever increasing glory.
And He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light.
Matthew17:2NASB
Father continues the transfiguration of Jesus in you and I, reproducing His
resurrection power and light through us, to all those peering in on our fiery furnace.
If we will simply behold Him in the midst, each one of us would recognize that we
are being drawn by our life experiences to the highest place with Him, to know Him
in deep intimacy out of desperation and painful trial.
My greatest hour of empowerment came in His moments of transforming me
through suffering, just like my Lord. They were my mount of transfiguration!
Will you trust God and allow Him to lead you “to Jerusalem” for the fulfillment of His
purposes for your life…which He may not explain or even discuss with you?
Rest your bewildered heart down at His feet and pray with me:
     Father, I give myself to You again, right now. I repent of resisting Your
fulfillment for my life because my eyes were fixed on my circumstance. I see where I
have leaned on my own understanding. I fix my eyes on You now. I give myself back
into Your trustworthy arms of love for me. You are my desire. May my life declare
that You are enough. In Jesus name…
