Trusting God When You Don't Understand | Joyce Meyers 2020, Trusting God When You Don't Understand | Joyce Meyers 2020, Trusting God When You Don't Understand | Joyce Meyers 2020


I did this in detail this morning, but let me quickly say that whatever ails us god's word is medicine for our soul, and you know like, for example, if, if I sin and I'm miserable with guilt, because I've sinned, I can take a good dose of god.

Forgives me I can take a good dose of the mercy of god and be healed in my soul.

If I'm mad at somebody else, because they've hurt me, I can take a good dose of I forgive you and be completely healed if I'm sick with jealousy, because somebody else is getting what I want.

I can take a great big dose of contentment and my soul can be healed, but there's one thing: that is the answer to every problem that ails us and it's called trust god and do good.

If you have a nice big bottle of both of these things in your house, I don't care what ails you you've got.

What you need to always be well now look! This is a prescription for trust.

Comes from dr jesus, the patient is prescribed for us whosoever take as many as you need for as long as you need.

Refills are endless, but you have to be careful.

This stuff has side effects.

I mean when you start taking trust wow, you have a side effect of peace, joy, stability, confidence, better life and then, if you max match it up with some, do good see, I think a lot of times.

We think.

Well, I'm trusting god.

But what are you doing while you're trusting god? Are you sowing some good seeds in somebody else's life and believing that, even though you can't fix your own problem, you can help somebody else and through doing that, you're sowing a seed that will then bring a harvest in your life and even something as devastating as the earthquake in nepal.

I would go there and preach the same message that I'm preaching to you, because I don't care how bad off you are.

You can always find something that you can do for somebody else and nothing makes the devil any matter than when he's throwing his best biggest problem at you.

For you to say, I'm going to trust god and I'm going to help somebody else now.

This do-good stuff has side effects too, and their extreme happiness and rewards in heaven see trust god they're right in here the pills and we got do-good pills in here too.

You know when we don't understand, and we start trying to figure out what only god knows there can only be one result and that's confusion.

If I would have started out tonight and said how many of you are confused right now about something going on in your life, I would have had a lot of hands go up but see here's the truth.

You can't be confused if you refuse to try to figure it out.

I can tell you right now: dave is a guy that does not try to figure anything out he's just like god knows and he'll take care of it.

I'm casting my care and I've gotten there.

It's taken me 40 years, but I've I have a breakdown every once in a while, but I'm I'm doing good.

You know in first corinthians chapter 13.

The bible says that we know in part we know in part.

We don't know everything, we're not intended to know everything.

It wouldn't even be good for us.

If we knew everything.

Do you know if you knew right now everything coming up in your future? Hmm most of us would just sign off and say, forget it or even if you knew how god intends to use you or bless you in the future, you might get full of pride and that would ruin it.

So god only reveals things to us a little bit of time.

As he knows it's right and there is no such thing.

There's no need for trust.

If we know everything do you know that god really couldn't even be your god? If you knew everything that he knows, we need to get satisfied to know the one who knows and not have to know everything.

Can some of you take a step of faith tonight and say I don't understand what's going on in my life, but I am not going to try to figure it out anymore.

I am going to trust god and I am going to do good wow.

I feel the burdens lifting already there.

They go see, here's the thing the devil sends out.

He comes sits real close to your ear.

Well, what are you going to do? What are you going to do well? Well that doesn't make any sense.

Well, huh how'd that happen.

Well, look at that person over there.

They don't they're, not even serving god and they're blessed, just explain that if god is so good, how did that happen? If god loves you so much? How did that happen? And you know what I'm going to show you a scripture a little bit that said that jesus overheard but ignored the bad reports that were coming to him? You know I may hear the devil, but I don't have to believe him.

I may hear him, but I don't have to bow down to him and everything that he screams in your ear.

You need to just say I don't.

I don't have to know I'm going to trust god and do good I'm going to trust god and do good I'm going to trust god and do good and I'm always going to come out on top.

If I do that amen, you got to be careful about all the things that the enemy, the lies that he puts in your head, that you listen to.

Is anybody tired of being confused all the time? Are you tired of your head hurting, because you think think think think think think think.

Can I tell you a great deliverance for many of you would just be if you just stop thinking so much all the time about everything just get around to enjoying life a little bit, you want to really make the devil, mad trust god and enjoy your life.

While god is solving your problem, did you hear me, while god is solving your problem, you can enjoy your life.

That's what trust me.

Trust means I'm no longer miserable trust means I'm letting go of it and I'm going to do what I can do, but I'm not going to try to do what I cannot do hallelujah my gosh, I about drove myself crazy for years trying to figure everything out and you know sometimes, when you think you've got answers, you still don't have answers.

You just think you've got answers.

Oh I tell you what the world is full of mysteries.

The bible talks about mysteries, the mystery of christ, the mysteries of the kingdom of god, the mysteries of heaven, the mystery of christ.

In me, the hope of glory so many mysteries, and why do we get so rattled about the things that we don't understand? We should be intrigued by these mysteries pastor.

Mike told me today that of of all the movies watched the number one of all time of everybody, their favorite movies are mysteries.

I love mysteries.

You you're drawn in you come closer, but why is it when there's a mystery in our relationship with god that sometimes we we should be amazed by the mysteries of heaven and the mysteries of the incarnation and the minister and the the mystery of the trinity? We should just be like god, you are so awesome.

Nobody can figure you out.

This is a mystery.

We are not going to figure out the bible says when jesus comes again.

We will know him, even as we are known right now, there's going to be a time in your life when you will know everything, but it is not now and if you don't do anything else, get it through your head that you are going to go through life, not knowing a lot of things and you can get happy about it and have a lot of peace.

Now in the morning when you wake up and the first thing, you start trying to figure something out open your mouth and say I'm going to trust god and do good I'm going to trust god and do good first corinthians 15 51., take notice.

I tell you a mystery, a secret truth, an event decreed by the hidden purpose or counsel of god.

We shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed and transformed now he's basically saying that when christ comes, there will be some that won't ever die, because the ones who are alive on the earth at that time will be caught up in the air and those that have already gone before will rise up and we'll meet him in the air and we'll all be changed changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the sound of the last trumpet call for a trumpet will sound and the dead in christ will be rised, imperishable, free and immune from decay, and we shall all be changed and transformed.

I tell you, this is shouting scripture.

This is what we get to look forward to.

You know what, even when jesus shows up we're still going to have stuff wrong with us.

He doesn't care that you never reach the place of perfection.

What he wants is a perfect heart who's, always moving toward him moving toward him moving toward him, and I tell people all the time just get up every day and do the best you can and let god do the rest of what you can't do and when he returns whatever is still wrong with you he's going to be changed in the twinkling of an eye, and you will be like him and see him as he is.

You know what I don't worry about stuff, that's wrong with me anymore.

It doesn't trouble me one bit and it makes the devil so mad he's about to have a nervous breakdown.

You know why I don't worry with it anymore, because I about killed myself with worry over it for years and years, and you know what god finally showed me you're no surprise to me.

I knew what I was getting when I got you come on, I mean: do you honestly think that you got saved and the next day god said um, I sure didn't know you were going to be like this.

God is not surprised by anything that happens in our life.

The people in nepal were surprised by the earthquake, but god was not surprised and you may be surprised by some of the things that are going on in your life right now, but god is not surprised and he already has prepared your way of escape.

God has already planned.

The way out, and all you have to do is keep taking some trust and some do good mysteries, let's lean into them, instead of backing away from them, verse 53 for this perishable part of us must put on the imperishable nature, and this mortal part of us.

This nature that is capable of dying must put on immoral, immortality freedom from death now just hang on, and when this perishable part puts on the imperishable, and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled.

The scripture that says death is swallowed up in and unto victory o death.

Where is your victory? O death? Where is your sting? You may leave this earth, but you won't die you'll, be like him, even as he is right now and you'll understand everything that you don't understand now.

You know there's a lot of things that I don't understand that don't confuse me, I don't understand gravity, but I'm enjoying it right now.

I don't get upset about not understanding that I don't fully understand all the mechanics of breathing, but I'm participating and enjoying it.

I don't understand how trees and grass and flowers can look so dead in the winter and have no life in them and then in the spring they just, but I enjoy that every year and I'm like.

Oh, my god, you are so good.

I don't understand electricity, but I depend on it.

I don't know how I can put a little message in my cell phone: send it to my son who's in india and in less than five minutes, have a message back from him.

I don't understand it, but I use it every day.

Why do we think that we have to understand everything about god who is less understandable than anybody? I don't need to understand what god's doing in my life.

I just need to trust him that he's good and whatever he's doing whether I like it or not.

Right now I will like it eventually.

I wish that I could really explain to you all the stuff that I've went through in my life.

Oh, I was such an unbelievable mess and the work that god has done in me, but it hasn't all been pleasant, but it's so worth it stop running away from god and running away from everything.

That's uncomfortable and everything that's hard and everything that hurts you a little bit and just dig in and say god.

I want your will in my life, you do what you want to do in my life when I lost all my friends, I was lonely, I mean lonely and it was hard and it hurt, but I couldn't have gone to the next place.

I couldn't have carried all that baggage with me.

Some of you have got some stuff that you're trying to take with you and it's just dead baggage, and you need to get rid of it and let it go.

But why do we keep hanging on and hanging on and hanging on because sometimes even our pain we're so attached to it that we don't want to? Let go of it like I said this morning.

We can learn how to function within our dysfunction.

It really blessed me when I saw this.

You know right right down to the very end.

The last thing that jesus said was father into your hands.

I commit my spirit and right before that he said my god, my god, why even jesus in his humanity said why you know I can ask why, but I don't have to get confused.

God show me why, if you want to, but if you don't I'm going to trust you anyway, and you know what else jesus did on the cross, he not only continued to trust god on the cross when he was hurting the worst that he could possibly hurt.

All of us together are not hurting as bad tonight as jesus hurt on that cross.

We can put all of our pain and all of our confusion together, and it doesn't even begin to match what he went through, but you know what on that cross.

He was loving people right to the very end.

Not only did he say, I commit myself into your hands, but there was a couple of thieves there.

He ministered to them took the time in his pain, you'll, be with me today in paradise.

You know what else I love he made provision for his mom come on in the midst of his pain.

He said john.

I want you to take care of my mother right to the very end.

He was trusting god and doing good, trusting god and doing good, trusting god and doing good, trusting god and doing good.

You know we worry way too much about what other people are doing to us and not nearly enough.

We don't pay enough attention to how we should respond.

Do you know that you're not responsible for anybody, but you and no matter how many wrong things somebody does to you.

The only thing you're responsible for and the only thing, I'm responsible for is my reaction amen occupy until I come in the book of luke.

It says that jesus said.

Will I find faith on the earth when I come back, you know, no matter how big our problem is.

All jesus wants us to do is just believe, believe, simple, childlike faith.

I don't understand it god, but I believe I don't understand why I had cancer 25 years ago I was out preaching faith and laying hands on other people praying for their healing that had stuff like that, but I just kept saying: I trust you god.

I trust you.

I trust you and he took care of it.

There's a lot of things in my life.

I don't understand.

I don't understand why the power got shut off in the building last night.

How dumb is that I mean I don't understand that, but I you know I'm growing, I'm stretching I do any of you have any stretch marks.

You know if you're not being stretched in faith.

Come on women get stretch marks when they're giving birth.

We need to all have spiritual stretch marks in our life.

We need to be giving birth to some stuff amen.

This is one time when the men get to have stretch marks.

God stretches us in our life.

How many of you have walked with god a few years, and now you have a much greater capacity to trust him than you did before.

Amen, isn't life so much better when we trust god, you know I've never sat around and got confused about wow.

I wonder I just can't figure out.

Why god's letting me be on television around the world? Why this that really confuses me.

I've never one time done that! I'm just like yes! But if he took me off I'd be confused, you understand what I'm saying we don't we don't get.

You know our confusion is selective and we're only confused about the stuff.

We don't like we're only confused about the things that hurt, but let's trust god with our pain.

Can some of you take your pain tonight and trust god with your pain and say god, this hurts so bad.

I feel like.

I can't stand it, but I trust you and I'm gonna keep trying to be a blessing to other people, because I believe that even if it hurts you're helping me give birth to something new in my life foreign do so you.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5 HCSB).

Faith means you obey even when you don't understand it.

Because God loves you, you can show your trust in Him by talking about all your feelings and circumstances with Him — the good and hard — through prayer.
