Lately, it seems the world is topsy turvy. There is much fear, chaos, and confusion everywhere you turn. It’s almost like everyone’s life got turned upside down overnight. Many are lost, but I also see many holding steadfast and secure.
As I speak to many people throughout the week, everyone’s life story eventually falls into one of those two categories. After many hours of conversations, I can say with certainty that I see a clear distinction between one and the other. The ones living life in fear and worry rely on themselves or others. The ones embracing uncertainty with strength and security lay it all on Jesus.
To be clear, although both are enduring similar situations, each one has a different experience. There is a freeing knowledge of knowing that despite your current circumstance, God is in control. This decision doesn’t mean the problem will go away, but instead, it changes your perspective on how you handle it.
What all this means is that life is not about God concerning himself solely with our individual needs and wants but instead how we render our life to Him to accomplish His will. In doing so, all other things come under alignment, whether we understand it or not. Therefore, life is about complete faith in God and his sovereignty, regardless of our situation.
