Bottom line, life on planet earth can push us to our emotional and physical limits. Feeling like we can’t control the outcome can hijack all peace and joy if we’re not on-guard. But when life takes us through those “lands of affliction,” we still have a choice.
We can (a) completely freak-out — which is a totally understandable human reaction to unwanted situations and unknown tomorrows, or we can (b) completely freak-out for a second — because we’re still human — but then preach the truth of our sovereign, steadfast God to our hearts and minds, stirring up waves of hope. In Christ, the choice is ours.
A number of years ago the sovereignty of God became more to me than some theological phenomenon I read about in seminary books. The sovereignty of God became a solid place of truth upon which to stand when I can’t see what He is doing. I talk a bit about that in this week’s short video teaching for Fruitful Affliction
I pray that these small words in a cutesy video describing such a lofty, powerful aspect of our God stir up endurance and comfort in you today. Our Lord sits on His throne. And He remains perfectly faithful to His children.
Fill me, Lord…
How/when has the “sovereignty of God” empowered you to keep walking forward?
