Underestimating what God can and will do for us; I don't know about you, but this is something I have done. More than once, I have looked at challenges in my life and in the lives of the ones I love and, from my perspective, they looked enormous. For example, last year my oldest grandson was going to be attending a new school in the Fall and did not get in the school which was his first choice. (I wrote about the "enormous" problem at the following link and about God's amazing answer at this link.)Then a year ago my son and daughter-in-law closed on their new house and they were able to move into their new house! My grandsons were SO excited! They LOVED their new house and my oldest grandson told me he would never have even thought to think of going to the school he is now attending. He said God sure did have a better plan, because not only is he in an excellent school - which he loves - but so are his brothers, and his entire family now has a wonderful new home.
Before we left their new house last year to come home, my middle grandson ran up to me and said; "Grandma, I sure love how God answers your prayers!"
It is so helpful to remember these times in our lives where we are able to see how God answers our prayers, because, sometimes we are not able to see what God is doing. Those are the times when we may underestimate what God is doing, and will do. Remembering helps us have hope. Remembering helps us trust. Remembering helps make the choice to not underestimate God again; and when we remember and tell the ones we love, they are able to remember and make the choice to not underestimate God, either.
Trust God to show you His plan in His time and His way - He will do so much more than you will ever even begin to imagine.
