I don’t know about you, but I’ve been feeling… bleh.
Anxious. Let down. Frustrated. Scared, even.
All of this is for personal reasons; but I look around me and see the same thing. Especially since much of the Western United States is up in flames, the Presidential Election is coming up, and COVID is still very prevalent in our society. What are we to do?
I’ve been reading a book called Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado, and in it, Lucado writes about how we can rejoice in the Lord’s Sovereignty, no matter what is happening in our lives. The same God who created all things is in charge of all things, and not only that—He LOVES us.
While we sit here, feeling deflated, we can look up, and say, “Father, You are Good, and in control.” He is in charge of who wins the 2020 elections, when the fires will stop, and every situation you happen to be in. And He turns all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). You can trust His Love because He died for you, that you might know the Father and live forever (John 3:16, John 17:3).
So next time you feel completely out of control, friend, stop fighting, and accept His Love. Accept His Sovereignty. And Accept His good, wise, unique, perfect plan for your life. Never forget: His thoughts towards you are for good, not for evil (Jeremiah 29:11).
