Daily Devotional – 11/29/16 “Trust the one who knows the game!”

For the last few nights, my husband has gotten me hooked to the TV show Flip or Flop. It’s about a husband and wife whose business is flipping run down homes for a profit. On one episode, they received a call from a young man, new to the business, who needed help learning the game. contractor-free-clipart-1They agreed to partner with him on a house but during the process the new guy would flinch every time there was money to be spent because he’d already said he was in over his head. His budget was $30K, they said $45K. He wanted to keep the old cabinets, they said they’ve got to go. He said $500 for new floors, they said $5000. Long story short, because he trusted them, they ended up making a profit of almost $40K each. What am I getting at? Had the new guy not trusted the ones who knew the game, he probably wouldn’t have made anything close to what he did. And for somebody reading this, you may not understand the plays being called in your life, but trust in the one who knows the game! I know you’ve prayed and it don’t make sense; surrendered and it still don’t make sense, cried and you’re still confused; meditated and still don’t know.

But don’t you trust the one calling the shots? And do you not believe in the one making the plays? I’m only asking because if you do then you ought to know by now that God has a purpose for the exact process you’re going through. Stop calling folk, they can’t explain it. Stop looking for help, it’s already here. Stop seeking for the answer in someone’s similar situation, it isn’t the same. YOU are going through because it’s your time. Your entire life is being shook up because God said it needed to be. So, hold tight while the remodeling of you takes place. Oh, it won’t feel good but trust the contractor because while you’re putting effort into why, you’re missing the blessing of … you could be broke down during your remodeling yet you’re still working. You could be out of commission yet you’re still popping. And you could look like what you’re going through but I see you and you still look fly. Whoever you are that’s going through the remodeling phase, right now, don’t walk away prematurely because it’ll leave you unfinished for business. Trust the process!
