Beliefs and mindsets formed from failed expectations and harsh circumstances can discourage us and keep us from listening to what God is saying, from believing and trusting Him.
Even Moses thought his own people wouldn’t listen to him, let alone the king of a powerful nation. His recent failure (doing what God called him to do) made his current call seem foolish.
We do things, we’re obedient to God, and they don’t work out like we think they should. Doubt and discouragement come flooding in.
But regardless of our thoughts, God continues to work, to instruct, and to lead. In this moment, will we still choose to trust and follow?
