Yesterday, I shared my daughter’s devotional and today I will share my son’s devotional. He also had to work this past Sunday so I asked him to send me a script and tell why he selected it and here’s what he wrote:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
In this world it is inevitable that we will experience a time or have moments in our life where we aren’t fulfilled or pleased with where we are at. Whether that emotion be pain, depression, anger, or anything of that sort. We must know the true source of our peace. That is God. We all have a purpose here on this earth. Yes, we have Christ. Yes, we love God. However, that will never mean that we won’t face obstacles or take on the burdens of this world. God is the source of our strength and it is through Faith we will then be able to overcome these small (Compared to God) obstacles in our life. God is in control , He is the creator of all.
I saw a TikTok once and one of the guys that I was watching said… “When you learn to take your hands OFF the situation and allow God to put his hands ON the situation, you’ll then start to see everything unfold and work out for His glory and will.” It is important to know and understand that we have to give it to the Lord. That is why the Bible says, “Take heart!” Meaning don’t worry.. For He has overcome this world.
All in all, I can assure you that every doubt, worry, intrusive thought, painful time, or what you’re going through… If you submit it to the Lord and truly give it to Him. Everything will begin to lift off of you so that you may overcome the trial that you’re facing. Life is tough. Giving up is enticing at times. But we were not put on this earth to give into defeat. God is bigger than your problems, He is bigger than our fears. He is bigger than our enemy. It is He that will orchestrate our lives and provide us the tools, people, and strength to get where He predestined us to be. Keep moving forward. God always has his arms extended out to us. It is up to us to look up and give ourselves to Him.
