The promise was never easy; however, God works all things together for our good. Good does not necessarily point to our comfortability or liking. We can be assured that everything will work out for our good. By this process, a spirit of surrender will have to transpire in you to gain an understanding of what God is doing this season. You cannot trust God while holding on to a backup plan designed in your fleshly desire. If you find yourself operating under these conditions, then you are still functioning in fear. Our flesh and the Spirit cannot abide in the same atmosphere. We have to set our minds on the things above for us to become One with the Spirit of God. Maybe this will be a season of removing your earthly desires and stepping in to God’s heavenly realm in order to completely trust Him. Our yes to Jesus is hard, but there is direction and clarity in Him that you will never find anywhere else. Maybe this particular time is designated for you to backtrack to that position of finding that yes to Jesus. By going back to that surrendered place where your faith outweighed your fear, you can reconnect with that moment of true trust in God.
If things do not go the way you anticipate, will you still trust God? When the Lord sends you to unknown places, will you still go? When chaos is surrounding you, will you still trust His plans? When you find yourself struggling to trust God, redirect your attention to God. When you are focused on God, you cannot focus on the issue at hand. You are now focused on the Solution, rather than the problems you may have. God never asked us to figure it out, rather we trust that He already has. Even if you are barley holding on, God can still use you. Even if you are blindsided by the events of life surrounding you, you are still finding your way through. In your stance to not quit, you have already decided that you trust Jesus. Stand on it; make it a proclamation with heaven’s name. Following Jesus is hard, but you are never alone.
The foundation to our answer is trust. Will you keep working in your assignment, even when the answer is no? Will you keep waiting in the wilderness season? Will you trust God despite not being able to make sense of what you are going through? Decide to completely trust Him. Maybe this season is for you to reexamine and reevaluate your mind, heart and spirit. What does your faith in Him look like in this season? You can get back to that place where you believed that God could do the impossible and draw from there. The confirmation of His goodness is all around you. Grab hold of it. Keep working; God sees you. Remind yourself today: In spite of the evidence that surrounds me, God I trust you. No matter what the outcome is, You will make a way. It does not matter what people think, God you are the only voice that matters. God has never failed, and He will not start now. If the answer is wait—choose to wait on God. If the answer is no—God still has the most amazing plan for you. Even if there is no answer at all;
Yet, I trust You.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” -Jeremiah 17:7-8
