Verse Of The Day : The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped…Psalms 28:7
Thought Of The Day : Those who choose to stay in faith with God never regret their decision.
LISTEN : God never disappoints His own. Those who choose to stay in faith with God never regrets their decision. My dear, trust in God and He’ll help you. Few months ago I told a story about a woman who was married to a poor, but hardworking man, who woke up one morning and walked straight to her husband and asked tearfully, “Dear, when will all these be over? How long are we going to go through this misery?” “Everything is under control.” Replied her husband. “Under control?” The woman screams. “Yes, under control. Everything is under God’s control.” replied the husband yet again. The woman believed her husband. Few months later, her husband was gainfully employed and their misery was removed. Beloved, how would you feel when a situation you thought you could handle gets out of control? How would you feel when a disease or ailment you thought could be addressed by a professional medical doctor turned out to have no medical solutions? How would you feel when everything about you seem hopeless? I know you’ll feel sad and disappointed. Why? Because you believe that everything is out of your control. Surely, in this life there are many factors outside your control, but they’re all under God’s control. All you need to do is trust in Him and watch Him help you. Nothing can be out of control when God is in charge (Mark 4:37-39). No matter the circumstance, if you do the right things and follow God’s will, weeping may last for a night, but joy will surely come in the morning (Psalms 30:5). So, no matter the situation, don’t take your eyes off God. Instead, trust Him to help you. Remember, God never disappoints His own. Be wise!
