Listen while you read: "Beneath The Shadow Of The Cross"1 (Lyrics)
What if the world suddenly stopped spinning? Would the entire human race cease to exist? What if your house were hit by a falling tree, or a tornado, or a bolt of lightning?
What if you got sick and couldn't look after your elderly parent any longer? What if something happened to your spouse, and you found yourself suddenly alone? Decisions which you shared with your spouse before, you would have to make alone. What if you made the wrong decision?
What if? What if? What if?
The "what if" questions confront us almost every day, without answers.
This type of questions can go on and on, bringing fear and negativity into our minds.
God's Word says:
Isaiah 41:10 – So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV)
Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (NIV)
Let us give the "what ifs" to God. He knows our future. He knows what is best for us.
Prayer: Lord God, we want so much to give our worries to You, but sometimes, we find that very hard to do. Remind us that You are always with us and You love us, even when we question Your will for our lives. Thank You. Amen.
