We often get into situations that seem very much out of our control. Things happen to us and we have no say on the matter. We never asked for those difficulties and yet they are sitting on our lap and we can’t push them away. Have you ever felt so much pressure from your problems that they seemed to be sitting on you all the time? Have you ever had so many worries that your mind couldn’t focus on anything else? Wherever you go and whatever you do your mind is filled with worry and doubt. You wonder how you are going to solve the problems, how you are going to get out of this mess. You start believing that the more you think about it, the more of a chance you have to find a solution but you really have no control over anything. The shift needs to start in your thinking. God needs to be included and to be added into the mix of all your thoughts. He is the One who can sort things out and He can make things better. Add Him into the recipe of your mind and you will see that He was the missing ingredient that could make everything taste so much better. He will give you a new appreciation for life and a new palate for the best things life has to offer. Let Him take over and He will change the recipe for disaster that was taking place in your mind.
“God is in control” and that truth should be part of what comes to mind every time you hit a hiccup. God took care of you before and He will take care of you again. He has been around. He didn’t leave when the problems started. He was waiting for you to turn to Him and to thank Him for being in control. He was trying to get your attention and tell you that there is nothing to worry about. Why? Because He is the One in control and not you. The only way you can fix it is by trusting Him, staying calm, expressing your faith, rejoicing despite the headaches and giving Him all the glory. Focus on how He is in control. Make it a habit to say every day that He is still in control. Say it in the morning, say it at night and say it throughout the day. You might not see how things are going to get better but you don’t need to see it. You just need to know that God is still in control and something amazing is coming your way. Your breakthrough is around the corner and great solutions are making their way into your life. God is still in control and He is making a way in the desert. He is bringing showers of blessings that will quench your spiritual thirst and make good things grow in your life again. God has not forgotten about you. He has not left your side. He has been there loving you and He is going to do something unexpected and something life-changing for you. He is in control of the outcome so don’t dwell on the problems. They are easy for Him to fix. God is still in control. Sleep easy tonight. There is nothing to worry about in Jesus’ name!
