It is natural to feel fearful when everything appears chaotic. No one likes the feeling of being out of control, without a firm place to stand or something solid to hold on to. However, when those times come, we must remind ourselves of the one fact that can stabilize us: God has a plan, and He is in control. When we’re reminded that nothing we experience is a surprise to the Lord, we can cling to hope.
Just before His arrest and crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples, “Behold. an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered. These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace.” (John 16:32-33) In other words, everything will look chaotic, but remember that God already knows about it and will bring stability out of the chaos. And certainly, three days later, they saw the greatest victory they’d ever witnessed, the resurrection.
Friends, God is in control of all that’s happening to you and in our world today. So take heart. He has a plan for you. Cling to the Lord, and you will see His awesome purpose for you fulfilled.
