Shew, did I ever need to read that this morning!! How many of you are like me and have a powerful morning devotional, and then literally lose your peace the minute you stop? It’s not an every day thing, but some days it seems like I immediately forget the capabilities of the One who I just spent time with as soon as the worries of the world flood in.
The truth of the matter is, so often I tend to put Jesus in a box, acting like He isn’t able to or doesn’t care to deal with the things that worry me. But this verse reminds us that when God sent Jesus down to earth to live the perfect life, die the most brutal death, and rise again to make payment for our sins, He put everything under Him. Not just the big things. But the things that seem to overwhelm Katie Lee in 2019.
He left NOTHING outside of His control. Not one single thing. Not cancer. Not financial ruin. Not broken friendships. Not the loss of a child. Not the ability to create and sustain a life. Not a strained marriage. Not travel plans. Not broken cars and home repairs. Not income worries. Nothing is outside of His power. And He loves us enough to handle them.
You know what else? He even loves us enough to handle our worry because He knows that in our weakness, we are not able to get out of our own way. And that is so freeing to me! So often I tell myself that I need to worry less and trust Him, but in the heat of it, that is so much easier said than done. We are not a stumbling block to Jesus. His power is made perfect in our weakness. The only thing that we have to do is seek Him, and He will handle the rest.
