Jesus can be trusted

As I write this post, I have to admit that I'm a little embarrassed because it has been so long since I've added to my "travel journal." It's not that I haven't been traveling with Jesus, but I've felt like I've have had so little to say. I've allowed the circumstances of 2020 to overwhelm me. I've allowed the busyness of life to be an excuse.

During my devotional time today I read these sobering and encouraging words from F.B. Meyer:

We must not weep because the future is unknown. “Jesus we know, and he is on the throne.” We must trust our own future to Christ without fear or tears of foreboding. The Lamb who shed his blood to redeem may be trusted to order and perfect that which concerneth us.

 F. B. Meyer, Through the Bible Day by Day: A Devotional Commentary, vol. 7 (Philadelphia: American Sunday-School Union, 1914–1918), 186.

If your struggling today, wondering if God knows what he's doing or if he's lost control, take heart in the fact that Jesus, the Lamb of God, has this moment and every moment to come in his hand right now and forever. His plans, purposes, and designs are being worked out, even if we can't discern it with our eyes or comprehend it with our minds.

Keep your faith in Jesus! He alone can be trusted!
