Things are going to get better. With God, things can only get better. They might not get better the way you want them to get better but they will. The key is to put everything in God’s hands. The key is to let the Lord be the Lord of your life, your whole life. Hand Him everything. Not just what’s easy to give up but every area of your life including the ones that seem impossible to heal. Don’t hold on to the parts you think you can fix. God wants your whole life and He can help you with everything. I used to save some situations for myself. I used to handle some situations on my own and it never turned out great. Now I hand it all over to the Lord. I am still learning but it has been a great process. There is nothing that the Lord can’t restore and there is nothing that He can’t improve or heal. Once I had that truth locked in my head, I kept meditating on it until it became a part of my daily thinking and my daily expectations. The biggest expectation we should have is that God is going to save the day and to make things more than ok. Today you might need to hear that things are going to get better because you have the Lord. You might need to hear that God is still in control and your situation is in good hands. Give up control. Give in to God and He will bless you more than you know.
How do you give God control of everything? Take everything to the Lord in prayer. Every day. Give Him the day. Put the whole day in His hands in prayer. Start your day with prayer and declare every day that God is in control and that you refuse to take matters into your own hands because His hands are holding you and your life. He is not just in charge of you. He is in charge of your life as long as you give Him permission. He won’t budge in and interfere with your plans. He is merciful but He wants you to make the decision to rely on Him. I know it’s tricky because He is not visible. You don’t see Him but He truly is more real than anyone you know and He is more reliable. You can trust God. You can count on His faithfulness. His promises are eternal. He will protect you, shield you and love you forever. If today is bad, know that tomorrow or the day after will be much better because the Lord will make sure that He makes all things right in your life. Trust Him. Pray about it and give Him your worst situations.
When I give a tough situation to the Lord in prayer, I sense a release and hope. There is always hope when I turn to Jesus. He is always smiling with hope and with power to change anything. I have found that prayer touches me and it helps me receive peace. It gives me strength and it gives me a boost. I see myself putting things in God’s hands and I know I don’t need to carry any of it. The next step is for me to stay strong and to keep letting go and letting God take control. I have to pray more than once very often. I don’t keep asking Him. I keep saying that He is taking care of my situation and that He is handling everything for me. It is such a powerful declaration and I invite you to make that declaration all the time. Don’t keep begging for a solution but keeping thanking Him because He is the solution. I also work on being patient and on enjoying life while I wait. Knowing that Jesus is working behind the scenes helps a lot. Things are going to get better. God will make sure of it. Rely on Him. There is no situation He can’t turn around and there is nothing that can stop Him from giving you the joy and the peace you deserve. Stay strong in the Lord. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
