"Trust in God with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight." Proverbs 3:5
This verse alone has encouraged me many times, maybe hundreds. When times are confusing, and my own mind and heart is troubled, trust God. Instead of expecting troubles to happen, hope that God will act and the troubles do not occur.
If I can't trust God who can I trust? Nobody. God is the most trustworthy person I can think of. He is much more trustworthy than me or anybody.
"He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide by what his ears hear." Isaiah 11:13
My eyes may be seeing things and I might think something other than truth is happening. Things can become complicated now and then. Insights get distorted. Wait till the dust settles, and trust God to lead you through the situation.
Even praying for things at times like these change. Situations are simply turned over to God. No long prayers. Lots of waiting.
