We Trust God by Pastor Ed Young
We walk out here away from God’s authority [Ed steps out from the umbrella] and we demand God to tell us His reasoning and rationale behind everything. In a couple of days, I’m going to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. The hygienist will do her thing. The dentist will walk in and talk to me about my teeth. What if I said this when I go to the hygienist, “Hold it! Don’t touch my teeth. Don’t think about cleaning them, scraping them.
Don’t think about flossing them until you bring Mr. Dentist in here. Both of you sit down and explain to me everything you know about oral hygiene. Just unload it. I want to know everything you know about it.” How long would I be in that office? Years! When I want an explanation for everything, when I want an explanation for every authority figure in my life, I have an authority issue. With God, we say God, “Explain it to me. God, why? Give me the what’s and the why’s and the how’s.”
What if God sat down and explained to you and me the why’s, the how’s, the what’s behind everything He does in our life. We would die with Him still sitting there and explaining stuff to us. We’ve got to trust God. We’ve got to have faith in God. That doesn’t mean we check our intellect at the door. We trust God, we get up under, beneath God’s authority. We get under it and we understand God’s placed it there. And we can ask some questions, but basically, we obey because when we trust and obey. There’s no other way to have the ultimate life. That’s it. We trust God. Look at God’s track record. It’s pretty strong!© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
