Thought for the Day II

"You need to tell your heavenly Father you trust Him.
You need to tell your heavenly Father you believe Him.
You need to tell your heavenly Father you adore Him.
You need to tell your heavenly Father you are in total agreement with His plan.
You need to tell your heavenly Father, that you will quit listening to the lies of the devil.
You also need to tell the world, your family and friends that you trust in your heavenly Father.

What you feel inside is very personal, and has a lot to do with your personality and your character; but what you believe about what happens when evil seems to have the upper hand, has more to do with your faith and your relationship with God.  

Does it matter what you believe?  I believe it does.  Despite how you feel about the evil things that happened in your life and could happen again, what you believe about God and His role and man and His role determine what we do about the way you feel.

If you do not trust that God is sovereign and in control of His creation; when evil strikes, you will see it as if evil is powerful and God is impotent.  But If you trust that God is sovereign and is in control of His creation, when evil strikes, you will see it as an opportunity for you to reflect God=s will, in that you are re-created (born again) to respond in the image and likeness of God Himself."
