Just because you can’t see God doesn’t mean He isn’t there, continually at work in your life. You may not understand what He’s doing but never doubt it—you are the object of God’s concern. And you can trust that His plan for you is perfect.
It takes courage to stand against the crowd and speak the truth. Sometimes it isn’t easy, and it can be isolating and lonely. But that’s how God shapes our character—when we depend solely on Him for our strength.
God not only moves in unusual ways, He also moves on uneventful days. He’s just as involved in the mundane events as He is in the miraculous. His hand is in it all.
Verbal restraint is a virtue, which applies to both men and women. If you struggle with this quality consider the three-second pause. Waiting before speaking gives you time to think about your words—are they true? Are they kind? Are they necessary?
What do you do when a situation goes from bad to worse? You have two options: Focus on yourself and your problems or focus on God. Focusing on God helps you trust He’s working out His perfect plan, no matter the circumstances.
In an overpopulated world it’s easy to underestimate the value of you, your vote, your convictions, your determination to say, “I stand against this.” Even though you can’t do everything you can do something. It makes a difference.
It’s easy to think we know it all, especially as we get older. Somewhere along the way we lose our teachable spirit. The truth is, regardless of age or education no one has the corner on wisdom. There is never a time we lose our need for the input of others.
When you imagine God’s face...what do you see? If you visualize anger, you’re wrong. All God’s anger at sin was poured on Christ at the cross. This means if you’re in Christ, you’re free from God’s wrath because of Christ’s death and resurrection.
God is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His. He wants to use you—you are uniquely placed in your situation to reach people for Christ in your sphere of influence. Never underestimate the difference you can make simply by refusing to blend in. The way you live can help someone find God.
