"I have everything under control."
Lord, do You have a word for us as we head into 2024? I know You do. Give us ears to hear, eyes to see, and a heart to clearly understand.
"Wait upon Me, trusting to the uttermost. My grace is sufficient. Look to My word. It is a treasure trove of help and support to you. Only when you can rest in your circumstances will you see the power of your Lord at work on your behalf."
"I have everything under control. Rest in that truth. I am always right on time. I orchestrate lives and paths and conversations eons in advance. Your finite mind can't fully understand this truth - just trust Me. I waste nothing. No delay, no disobedience, no error - nothing is wasted in My kingdom. Everything is orchestrated in such a way that My purposes are accomplished."
"Remember, I am doing a new thing. It may seem foreign to you, but My ways and thoughts are much higher than your ability to understand or make sense of them. Again, I remind you to simply trust. Trust until rest results. I go before you into your future. I've already been there. I know your victories, your challenges, and those times you will consider to be losses. I was there. I am there."
"Oh, how I would rejoice if you would simply rest in and trust Me to make My purposes complete in your life. You need only trust and obey. I am on the throne. I am omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. You can change nothing by fretting and worrying. Trust Me! Lean into Me. Stay close. Nothing shall harm you while you dwell under the shadow of your almighty God. It is My joy to see you accomplish those things for which I created you. Move ahead unafraid. I have spoken! I love you, Child." (01-01-2024)
Amen! What an encouraging proclamation as we head into 2024. I'm so thankful for a God who knows and is able - no matter what! If you are considering a Word to live by for 2024, it might just be TRUST.
