RELAX. HE’S GOT THIS.

Proverbs 3:5,6- “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

 

Are you worried? Frustrated? Agitated?

You know our Heavenly Father will take care of you.

But, do you find it hard to trust?

Here’s an idea I heard a few days ago on my local Christian radio station. It is so simple and practical that it bears repeating.’’

Here is what a caller suggested doing:

At the top of a paper, write this heading: Things I Am Fearful of and/or Worried About.

Now, list them out. As many as you can think of…

When your list is complete, go back to the top of the page and erase the heading.

Replace it with these words: Things I Can Trust God With.

Then thank God for being in control of each and every situation.

I Know You’re Out There

Psalm 91:4– “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

 

As I awoke this morning, God told me to put aside what I had already started writing for today, and to write this message TO YOU, instead:

Yesterday, you were on top of the world.

Today, everything has come crashing down all around you.

Yesterday, you had no worries…only endless possibilities.

Today, you are considering only a few options.

Yesterday, the sun was shining and there wasn’t a cloud in sight.

Today, the skies are are overcast and there is a storm brewing.

Yesterday, you wore a smile that lit up the room.

Today, that smile has turned to tears.

I know you are out there.

You are asking God, “Why my family?”  or  “Why me?”

You are wondering what good can come of your situation…your loss of a loved one…your diagnosis…your sudden disappointing news.

You’re holding back the tears, denying the feelings of abandonment, loneliness, betrayal.

You don’t have to go it alone.

God wants to rescue you.

Pray fervently for Him to heal your relationship, your broken heart, your body.

He wants you to draw close to Him. He wants to offer you His strength, His peace, His power.

He loves you. Lean on Him.

Instead of focusing on whatever your problem is, He wants you to give it over to Him and let Him handle it.

He wants you to trust Him and the power of His mighty hand.

You are precious to Him.

He wants to pour out His love on you.

He wants to cover you with His wings.
