Think About This

Listened to a teaching today from Charles Stanley, November 18th podcast "Trusting God" I heard some reminders that I knew but always need to hear again and again.

Three things to remember about God
  • God is perfect in His Love
  • God is infinite in His wisdom
  • God is sovereign in His control

Now if I really believed these truths, why would I waste time fretting about anything?  Now in case you think I have "arrived" in this area, nothing could be further from the truth. There always seems to be something that grabs my attention with the temptation to "fret" about it. Trusting  Him, intentionally surrendering my life, I find it's a daily thing for me (some times I have to do it several times a day) Can any of you idenify?

Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his mercies never fail. They are new every morning, great is his faithfulness Lamentation 3:22-24

For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose Philippians 2:13

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus  Philppians 1:6

It used to be that I would try any & all things ahead of trusting Him - - as if an outcome depended on me first, Him second. With age, I've finally learned to start with Him. I sure sleep better.

These are some of my favorite verses because they are so comforting. Why do we worry? We shouldn't, but I don't know anyone who isn't guilty of fretting over circumstances in our lives from time to time.
