Charles Stanley (October-02-2020) Daily Devotion: Why We Can Trust God. 

What situations cause you to doubt God? Do fears come because the future seems uncertain? Are hardships a challenge since they make the Lord appear unkind? Or perhaps your expectations and dreams have come crashing down, and it seems God is nowhere to be found.

Since our heavenly Father is omniscient, sovereign, and loving, we have every reason to trust Him regardless of the circumstance.

God is infinitely wise. We may have all the information that is humanly possible to gather, but God alone knows the future, the details of every situation, and the best possible plan for our life.

The Lord has complete authority over all events. Even though God’s ways are beyond our comprehension, we can trust Him, knowing that His control is exercised perfectly according to His complete knowledge and great love.  

God’s love is unfailing. No matter what we are facing, nothing can separate us from His love, which is in Christ Jesus (Rom. 8:31-39).

Let’s take some time today to ponder God’s limitless love, wisdom, and sovereignty. When you are trusting in Him, you’ll be able to follow His path for your life, and your heart won’t be troubled (John 14:1).

    Dr. Stanley,
    My husband and I have been married for 49 years and raised our two children and two of of our grandchildren from birth. Totaling 47 years of child raising. They all were raised in church as Hubby and I always have been active and regular attending and giving. I know two of the children are real Christians, although they have fallen away. the other two I am not sure they have really accepted Christ or if it was just going thru the motions. My questions is, when we get to Heaven and our loved ones are not there...do we have no memory of them? Because the grief would be too much to bare and there are no tears in Heaven. Also, after the rapture and during the 7 years of tribulation will peoples eyes be opened and they accept Christ? What if they have been forced to take the mark and then accept Christ? I am so heart broken with our youngest wanting to move in with her boyfriend, she knows it goes against our very being. How do I cope with this? Thank you for being an inspiration to us.
