Listen to today’s devo!

Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea—the Lord on high is mighty. (Ps. 93:4)

Our pastor often says, “God’s got this.” Whether the circumstance is difficult or joyous, it must be accepted with confidence in the One who allowed it to be part of our lives. When my daughter was seriously ill, she had a vision of Christ holding her and weeping. When miracle upon miracle saved my son’s life, I was encompassed by God’s peace. Christ does more than lift a burden off our shoulders. He knows us so intimately that he feels our pain, as well as our joy. He holds us, laughs with us, and is always there for us.

The writer of Psalm 93 talks about waves or attacks, which can only be endured because of our omnipotent God. Scripture teaches us that God never gets tired, does more than we could ever ask or imagine, and that nothing is too hard for him. The patriarchs, prophets, and apostles trusted in the everlasting attributes of the Lord, even when they faced uncertain outcomes and ordeals. Christ himself died a horrific death to wash away all our wrongs and rose so we might have new life with him.

As believers, we are all part of the congregation of Jesus Christ. Life will bring challenges, sorrows, changes, and joys. We have a God who wants to share them with us and give us victory. We just need to invite him.

Invite God into your trials and triumphs.
