What happens when you’ve prayed long and hard for something, but you don’t get the answer you wanted? You asked God, and you felt sure that he wanted it for you too. Yet you didn’t land that job, your kids didn’t return to church, your abilities are diminished, and the relationship you’ve been working on hasn’t been reconciled. In situations like these, we can often feel hurt, confused, disappointed, and even abandoned. But Scripture promises that God does not withhold any good thing from those who love him (Psalm 84:11). If you are walking through pain, heartache, setbacks, and disappointment, I want to encourage you with these truths today: God is good. God does good. God works all things together for good. God loves you. God is for you. You can trust his heart, even when you can’t trace his hand.
