“God is in control and He cannot fail.” This powerful declaration is what I want you to use all day. I want you to say it boldly when you are doing well and when worry is attacking you. You have nothing to worry about because you have the Lord. It is easier said than done at times but it is the ultimate truth. We get so used to worrying that we almost find it comforting. It doesn’t seem normal not to worry. We use the excuse that we are human after all. Yes, we are human and worry is part of our human DNA but greater is the One who lives in us than all the worries of the world. When we let worry dominate our thinking, we go back to our old ways. We are new creatures in Christ and as born again believers, we are blessed with the presence of the Holy Spirit in us. Now, we have to live our lives with the awareness of the Spirit in us and we need to let go of our old thinking patterns. We are encouraged to renew our minds. That is an ongoing process. We can’t be soft when it comes to our thinking. We should be alert and we should keep working on it. When we say that God is in control and He can never fail, we are pushing worry away and we are remodeling our thinking. There is not enough room for God and for worry in our heads. That is how we should look at the situation. One of the two will take up more space than the other. Let it be God. Let it be God all the time. We can win the battle of the mind when we constantly put God first and declare His majesty and power over everything.
God is in control. He knows exactly what He is doing. He can do all things. He has an amazing plan for all of us. His plan is for us to have life and to have it in abundance. Think about all the good things God has done for you. Think about the peace, the love, the joy and the faith He wants you to experience. Yes, you can have faith. Faith is one of the desires of God for your life. He wants you to walk in faith all the time. Faith pleases God. Faith connects you to God. Faith shows you God. Faith reminds you over and over that God is in control. Faith is one of your best friends. Hang out with faith. Spend a lot of time with Jesus and your faith will get stronger. Time spent with the Lord means time spent away from worry. There is this one praise song, there is this one prayer that can dissipate all fear and encourage you in the Lord. God is in control and you don’t have to try to figure everything out. He has the solution to all your problems. He has the perfect setup for your next miracle. He can move things around so you can find peace in the middle of confusion. His hand can reach you wherever you are. He is in control all the time and everywhere. There is more that He can do than you will ever imagine. Stretch your faith. Stretch your thinking. Declare with boldness that God can do all things. Declare with boldness that nothing can get in His way. Declare with boldness that God is going to make a way for you today. There is nothing to worry about!
God cannot fail. Do you know how many times I have failed in my life? Too many times to count. As a kid I used to fail Math tests from time to time and I was very discouraged. Those Math problems didn’t make sense to me. Those equations were too difficult to solve. God can solve all problems. God makes us win. He takes our failures and turns them into successes. God is a master at doing things right. When we give Him the pen, He writes beautiful paragraphs into our lives. When we give Him control, He makes everything perfect. All He asks is that you and I trust that He is in control and that His ways are higher than our ways. Worry doesn’t help. Worry doesn’t move the hand of God. Worry doesn’t get us closer to God. Worry clouds our judgment and it prevents us from hearing from God and from receiving from God. Attack your worries and fears with the Word of God. Be relentless. Keep speaking God’s sovereignty over your life. You have nothing to fear. God is in the house and He has closed the door so the enemy can’t get in. Believe Him. He is keeping you safe and He is pouring blessings into your life. Stay encouraged! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
