Not knowing is hard…
I spent Tuesday night glued to the TV, yet now, not knowing which way our country is going — feels unnerving.
Will we be okay?
What is going to happen?
How will this all work out?
I keep refreshing news websites and swiping on my phone. How long until everything is wrapped up.
Maybe you are there today too — in the space of not knowing. Maybe not knowing is making you feel restless, a little nervous or worried. Maybe it isn’t even the election that is bothering you..but, other areas in your life: finances, marriage, relationships, or health.
You don’t know if you are going to be okay. If things will be okay. If everything will work out.
I think the one thing cuts through not knowing is remembering: Christ always has the victory.
“No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.” (Ro. 8:37 NLT)
Despite natural outcomes, Christ loves us.
Despite what we see, Christ has a good, perfect and pleasing will.
Despite what feels hard, we are being transformed from glory to glory into His by the Spirit (See 2 Cor. 3:18 KJV)
Nothing can remove the love of Christ for us. Nothing can stop the Lord Almighty. Nothing, with God, is irredeemable.
God can work good, in even, what even seems bad.
“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith.” (1 Jo. 4:5)
Prayer: Father God, I trust in you. I do not look at what I can see — or what I can’t see. I look at you. I look to you. I wait for you. You are King. You are Lord. You are Conqueror. You are Faithful. Today, I release fear and worry and I take on your faith. I thank you for Jesus, the son, who died for me. I trust Him to continue saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
