Breaking News:  In the future, every one of us is going to experience some new problems, some new pressures and some new opportunities.  Sometimes we’re not going to know what to do or even what to think. So where do you go for advice in a new situation?  You can “Google” it. You can ask around; check with folks who’ve been there. Those are well and good. But how often do you simply push pause and talk to God about it?

For reasons I do not understand millions of, seemingly otherwise normal, people watch the likes of Shawn Hannity and Rachel Maddow every night. They pay attention to and hang on to their every word. Yet, God Himself tells us to pay attention and trust Him and we usually blow it off. Does that make any sense? Anytime you pay more attention to what a talking head says over God, you are already in deep trouble.

God is always reliable because His guidance is 100% dependable. He does not have to please a sponsor, a PAC or pump up His ratings. He’s not constrained by time.  He’s in the past, present and future all at once.  You can’t fathom that can you? Neither can I. On a smaller scale that is like me trying to understand how my smart phone works. If you could figure out God, you’d be God. But we are not required to figure Him out.

Proverbs 28:26 Those who use God’s wisdom are safe. The point is you don’t have to know everything right now. You don’t have to have all the future figured out.  All you have to know is the best place you go to get answers.  All that is required is to trust Him. Remember that fact tonight when you get all worked up watching the cable “news” channels.
