When You Don’t Know What God’s Doing

When You Don’t Know What God’s Doing

June 27, 2020



You might be in a place right now where you don’t know what God is doing. I found myself there recently and it was very frustrating because I didn’t understand what happened to cause the unwanted results I was experiencing. I really felt at a lost and it saddened me. Maybe you can relate.

I thought I’d handled things correctly, and in fact, I’d felt blessed prior to the unexpected turn of events. I even thought, God had orchestrated things and had guided me in my responses. That’s why I didn’t understand what God was doing. What did I do?

The key for me was to TRUST and BELIEVE what Romans 8:28 says…know that everything works together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.

I found myself going through a process that eventually brought me to a place of peace. These are some of the things I did and continue to practice because those unwanted thoughts of the past experience will resurface and try and wear me out. But I have victory when I:

Pour out your heart to God. God listens when we’re pouring out our heart to Him and He’ll speak to us as He promised in Jeremiah 29:12-13…you will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.

Dig deep into the Word of God for it is a lamp to our feet and a light for our path (Psalms 119:105). Here’s where God really talked with me. When I want to go deep, I use a method entitle S.O.A.P. Write the Scripture…Observation…Application…Prayer for the Scripture that jumps off the page for me.

Terminate the stinking thinking, that negative inner dialogue. II Corinthians 10:5 tells us to cast down arguments…and bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

I still don’t know all of what God is doing in this specific situation, but what I do know, is what to do, when I don’t understand what He’s doing. I put the previous three strategies into practice. I hope you will too.
