That’s good news!
If we listen to what every financial prognosticator says, we’d think there is no hope. If we listen to President Obama every time he spoke, we’d think no one has the answer. If we believed everything some of those intellects in the world of science and climatology are saying, then we would think the world was going to burn up from global warming.
However the good news is that God is in control.
People, especially Christians, sometimes live their lives like there is no hope available. Their thought processes during their times of trouble range from unsettled to panic. Their hearts are saying, “Stay calm, stay calm, don’t panic, don’t panic–on second thought, PANIC!”
Then they start scrambling to see what they can do to solve the problem. This problem weighs heavily on their mind. This is compounded by the fact that other problems arise while they are working on the present problem. Then the problems begin to accumulate.
Sickness creeps in while they are working on other problems and this compounds the problem solving process. They miss more work because they were working on problems, got sick and now can’t work. (This is the lifestyle of many Christians you and I personally know. I’m doing all I can to show them and teach them that God loves them and He is in control!)
Did you see yourself as you were reading? Did you see how things get out of control for you?
The main problem lies in the fact that you leave out the very ingredient to problem solving; God. Yes God. God is in control of all the things in our lives. We can’t do one thing about keeping the planet warm or cool. We can’t do one thing about the world’s problems. We can’t do one thing to keep others from being mean to us. But there is one thing that we can do and that’s rest in the Almighty. Relax in His care.
News flash! That’s exactly what He wants you and me to do; rest. He wants us to bring our burdens, our anxieties and our problems to Him. Don’t keep trying to fix them yourself. Your God is so much bigger than your problem. Remember that.
He loves you so very much. He cares for you. Don’t ever forget that.
That’s what I think about it.
