Have you ever stepped out to follow God, only to discover when you got to where you were going, that it didn’t look anything like you thought it would? Has your obedience ever been followed by trials and testing? This is exactly what happened to Abram after he obeyed God’s call. It all started out very different than he must have imagined, but at just the right time, God fulfilled every one of His promises. If you are faithfully following God, but your life isn’t what you hoped for, keep trusting Him. He will not steer you wrong.
Trusting the Unseen Plan of God
God is never mentioned in the Book of Esther. He seems invisible and silent. Yet we discover that God is actually at work behind the scenes through it all, quietly bringing about His will. So always remember, just because God is silent, it does not mean He is absent! In those seasons of life when God seems strangely quiet, He is still there, still at work.
