It is easy to “talk” about trusting God, but so much more difficult to actually walk in that trust. Monday, I had read a post that inspired me: Patience means choosing to Trust God even when the circumstances haven’t changed yet- Victoria Osteen’s. As I read that I knew that somehow that was posted for my viewing. I was so moved by the quote that I shared it, all the while believing that I was trusting God while waiting for change.
But later that night, a mere text message with four words completely tore me apart. I immediately felt my old “friend” fear and his brother worry take over my mind and my heart. I began to analyze every scenario and did what I typically do, I withdrew and went to bed. I went to bed to be alone with my old buddies “fear and worry”. Lying in my bed, I began to ask God to change my situation. Instantly (not minutes or hours later) He spoke into my my heart the words “I will redeem it all”. God did not promise me that he would redeem part of what has been tarnished and lost. He spoke to me that he would redeem it all. Peace flooded me. Peace beyond my understanding.
So I urge you to ask yourself, Is there anything that you are holding on to that you think is too big for God? Because we serve a BIG God. He can Redeem It All! I am standing on these words that calmed my heart and gave peace to my weary soul.
Phillippians 4:6-7 Do no be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
