I said it. You probably said it. It was a crazy thing to say to tempt fate. May we never say again, “I’m so glad it’s 2021, for it can’t be any worse than 2020!” And then Wednesday happened. Three Kings Day, Epiphany, the end of the 12 Days of Christmas, and now … the siege of Washington DC..
And so much has been said, written, commented on that anything else I would say seems superfluous. So I just want to ask three simple questions that put my mind at rest and maybe it’ll put yours at rest too.
Now be warned, if you answer any of these in the negative, it may cause more stress, so proceed at your own risk.
First … Do you think God is good and loves his people?
So simple, so basic. Do you?
Second … Do you think God is powerful and in control?
Well, do you? This is so important. If he’s not in control, than nobody is. And if not him, chaos. But if him, then so many other things fall into place. This is not asking if you understand how he works or why he does the thing he does, it’s just asking if you think he is in control and powerful enough to stay in control.
And Third and Last … If you answered yes to the first two, will you trust him, trust him completely in everything?
This is the way we should be living. Trusting him in everything and in every way.
Me? My answers are Yes, Yes, and absolutely Yes.
What about you?
