God’s Sovereignty

Today's Scripture

“You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great” - (Psalm 18:35).

Thoughts for Today

It happens quite often in the world of sports: a player or a team once on top comes crashing down amidst intense pressure and somewhere buried beneath the rubble is their confidence. Instead of dominating their sport like they once did, they suddenly begin making mistakes they have never made before. Rather than winning championships, they hope to just be respectable.

In today’s media-hungry world, it only takes a few people to begin denouncing a team or player before everyone joins in, including the players and teams. Those who once seemed invincible now seem average. Climbing out of such a devastating place is a difficult task.

We, too, face public opinion each day in our lives. Though we may firmly espouse the doctrines of our faith, when life turns dark and we become gloomy, the people we interact with on a daily basis begin to question our faith. Whenever we experience tragedy, our tendency is to shake an angry fist at God rather than turning to Him for comfort.

Many people begin to drift away from their faith because events occur in their lives that make them doubt God’s sovereignty and they begin to listen to the naysayers around them.

Whether it is a broken relationship or the death of a loved one, God does not abandon us; rather, He takes those situations and begins to weave His love into our lives in unexpected ways.

We see His hand at work and realize He has never left us. As believers dedicated to following God, we must not let public opinion sway our faith in Him, holding fast to our confidence that He alone is our Savior.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Help me to recall Your victories in my life in the past and trust You no matter what. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
