IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Be still. Step out of the busy, chaotic room you find yourself in and look to me. Remember who I am and keep that truth before you when you re-enter the noise and tumult. I want you to be able to rise above the uproar and breathe long breaths of calm and peace. If I can run the world, I can run your life.
Take your hands off the steering wheel. Relinquish control. In fact, move out of the driver’s seat. I am your God, not your co-pilot. Let me not only navigate but also take you to places you did not think possible. You may be troubled by where I take you or you may begin to fear, but remember who I am. I am your refuge—your protector. I am your strength—your power. I am ever-present—your confidence. Look to me and keep your eyes on me. I know you have plans you want me to bless, but I want you to follow me. Come and see what I am going to do.
Stop worrying and start worshipping. God is with you. He will never leave you. Identify one thing that worries you and turn it into a prayer. Every time you think of what worries you, stop and pray.
