“Jesus promised his disciples three things—that they would be completely fearless, absurdly happy, and in constant trouble.”
—William Barclay, The Gospel of Luke
I don’t care what your questions are or what the problem is—The Answer is Jesus!
Every time I found myself on a dead-end, or a fork in the road, and didn’t know which way to go? If I would go to Jesus and talk it over with Him? Eventually, I would get an answer, and the answer He would bring would take me to a place of peace, and hope.
If I would try to solve it myself?
My answer (more often than not) would bring me more questions, and sometimes, more problems.
So, whatever the problem, can I suggest you might want to take it to Jesus first?
If He created it all (and as people of faith we believe He did) then why not approach His throne with love and forgiveness for any who oppose you, and then with confidence and boldness, ask for His help?
He’s waiting on ready to help us every single time.
“Anything under God’s control is never out of control.” —Chuck Swindoll
God, your wrap-around presence
is my protection and my defense.
You bring victory to all who reach out for you.
Righteousness is revealed every time you judge.
Because of the strength of your forgiveness,
your anger does not break out every day,
even though you are a righteous judge.
Yet if the wicked do not repent,
you will not relent with your wrath,
slaying them with your shining sword.
You are the conqueror with an arsenal of lethal weapons
that you’ve prepared for them.
You have bent and strung your bow,
making your judgment-arrows shafts of burning fire.
Look how the wicked conceive their evil schemes.
They go into labor with their lies and give birth to trouble.
They dig a pit for others to fall into,
not knowing that they will be the very ones
who will fall into their own pit of failure.
For you, God, will see to it that every pit-digger
who works to trap and harm others
will be trapped and harmed by his own treachery.
But I will give all my thanks to you, Lord,
for you make everything right in the end.
I will sing my highest praise to the God of the Highest Place!
Psalm 7: 10-17 The Passion Translation
