Do you leave it in God's hands when you don't know what to do? (Stock Free Images)

This pain is dragging you down, robbing your joy, aching your heart. No one seems to understand. Maybe they don’t even know.

You’ve pleaded with God for deliverance. You put your faith in Him. You’ve been waiting a long time. Nothing. You are out of options. You have no plays left to run. It looks like game over.

But is that what’s really going on? Just because you don’t know what to do doesn’t mean that nothing is happening.

God is sovereignly orchestrating every event in our lives for His glory and our ultimate good. We will be delivered.

Long before His people were even in bondage, Isaiah wrote, “In that day the Lord will end the bondage of his people. He will break the yoke of slavery and lift it from their shoulders” (Is. 10:27).

Our part?

“So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor” (1 Pet. 5:6). When will this happen? Only God knows, but He has made a promise that it will happen at “the right time.”
