“We are pressured in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair;
we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed.”
—2 Corinthians 4:8-9
I was golfing the other day with my friends and here are the things we talked about after
I am wondering what God is thinking about the discussions we are having here on
earth. I have some pretty intelligent friends and of course there is me!
Everyone has opinions and solutions to solving all the worlds problems. Unfortunately,
solving the world’s problem is not that easy. Only God can provide the true solution
facing our nation.
The truth from God’s word tell us:
God is in control of all things!
“Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our
refuge. Selah” —Psalms 62:8
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think
about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths. Don’t consider
yourself to be wise; fear the Lord and turn away from evil.”
Ask God for wisdom!
“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and
without criticizing, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith without doubting.
For the doubter is like the surging sea, driven and tossed by the wind.”
Ask God for a servant heart!
“But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
Ask God to get you through the trials!
“Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing
that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete
work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.”
Ask God for hope!
“Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He
has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from
the dead”. —1 Peter 1:3
There are a lot of things we are going through during this time. We must take time to do
Read God’s Word-don’t just read, but study what is in the greatest instruction book of all
Pray-Communicate with God Almighty Himself! We have an open line to Him and He
can handle all our problems!
Meditate on God’s Word-think about what you read or studied that day and put it in your
mind in all that you are doing! It really works when you put God first and see how He
can change your life!
Stay connected with a local church - God continues to use the church to meet the needs
in the community and opportunities to participate in worship services.
Share your story! Tell others around you the good news of Jesus Christ. John 3:16, For
God so loved the world, He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes
in Him will not perish but have eternal life.
I just want to encourage you all to seek God’s plan for your life and know that He loves
and cares for you and your family!
