Second guessing God

Have you ever watched house flipping shows where the owner tries to save money by helping the crew? The show ends overbudget with usually predictable results. Many years ago I remember seeing a sign at a TV repair shop that listed the hourly rate of $50 per hour but $150 per hour if you helped. When we think we know what we're doing and interfere with an expert's assistance, it never turns out well for us (and can even make matters worse). The same thing happens when we think we can anticipate God's next move, only to realize He knows so much more than us. We simply can't arrange so many moving parts.

We just received a unexpected windfall check (an overpayment from a medical facility). But there's a catch: it's the invoice listing it. We haven't received the actual check yet. And no matter how we've tried to speed up the process, etc., it's still in God's hands. It's obviously a blessing (and a blessing to even know about it at all) but we have to wait. God is at work yet we don't know all that's going on behind the scenes. We doubt because of a fear of the unknown.

Luke 24:28 "And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?"

So much in our lives revolves around faith and trust.

Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."

Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding."

Notice it doesn't read "some of your heart" but "all"..?

So when you obviously see God at work, it's best to leave it to the professionals.
