When you don’t know what’s going on – whether it’s health, a relationship, your job – don’t focus on what you don’t know. Focus on what you DO know. Here’s five suggestions:
- God is good. Psalms 119:68 “You (God) are good and do good.”
- God is powerful. Jeremiah 32:17 “You (God) have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You!”
- God is there. Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
- God has a plan for you. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
What can you add to the list?
If you say ‘I can’t go anywhere or do anything until I know where I am going,’ you’re not going to get anywhere. Have Faith. Trust. Have Hope. Focus on what you know.
I heard this on the radio as I waited to pick up my daughter. I really, really, REALLY want to give credit to the minister and broadcast where I heard this but I didn’t catch the minister’s name or the name of the program so my apologies for not giving proper credit. If someone knows, I will absolutely give credit! ~ Stephen
