Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20
Recently I got a political email with the subject line 'This Is Bad Friend' and it gave me an idea for this devotion. How many times when we 'feed' ourselves a steady diet of the daily news on TV,online, or in the paper can we become so discouraged with the state of everything? It is extremely easy to let doom and gloom take control of your mind and to start being fearful. My friend, Jesus has our back and God is 'master of this universe' and bigger than any situation or any problem.
No matter what as this verse says "God can do immeasurably more" because after all He is God and He has our back. He allows certain things for a reason and we have to trust Him that His plan is the greatest plan and not allow fear to overtake you. If you tend to be fearful then turn off the TV and open God's word instead. In it you will find peace, hope,and joy and the rest of the story.
A new year means a new way of doing business. A chance for a clean slate. Maybe that needs to be done in your thought life. Get those things out of your life causing you panic and anxiety and trust that God is in charge.
PRAYER: Lord you are God most high. You are sad when evil happens but you allow it sometimes because after all we have a free will. We pray for those people who are bent on evil that their hearts will be turned from evil to good. We pray your name be lifted up over our troubles. In Jesus' name. Amen.
