Sometimes we get frustrated and disappointed about the things that are not under our control.
There are indeed situations in our individual lives that we are all facing everyday of our lives that wont be and will never be in our control.
Death of the family member or love ones, sickness, pain, failures, disappointments, being broken hearted, business failure, financial crisis, dangers, etc. Name it!
Yes we cant really control everything. We cant control the situations. We can only control the way we respond to them.
I may not know personally the things you are going through right now, but i plead with you to remember this. GOD KNOWS IT!
God knows every detail of our lives. Our ups and downs, our lefts and rights, our whole and our being.
As i write this note, i also is going through tough and painful situations. But God spoke to me this very verses in my quiet time tonight..
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where THE MOST HIGH DWELLS.
God is like a river that will continously flow into our hearts, a river that will give us peace, a river that will give us comfort and joy, a river that dwells in us, a river that will lead us into a loving arms of God NO MATTER WHAT!
We cant change situations.. We cant change the people who hurted us and continously hurting us.. We cant change everything because we are not God. He is the only One who can make things upside down. He is the creator of heavens and earth.
And also.. Everything happens for a reason FOR OUR GOOD..
For I know the plans I have for you, to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you future and hope.
Let the peace of God sorround our hearts as we face every challenges that comes our way.
GOD IS IN CONTROL! Let us trust in His will and Sovereignty….
I pray that weather in good times or bad times.. HOLD ON TO GOD!
..that is also the very thing i keep on reminding myself each time..
He is our Heavenly Father, our lover, our comforter, our bestfriend, our lover….and most importantly OUR LORD AND SAVIOR…
Its ALL ABOUT GOD AND NOT US..
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still.. Be still.. Be still..
God is in control..
His loving presence will guard our hearts through Christ who strengthen us.
