How to Think about What Happens to You

As we move into the new year, I want to encourage you to see your life and the events of it from the perspective that God is in complete control and that He always does that which is best. See your life as guided and orchestrated by the Lord. Govern your reactions and train your mind to think of verses like Romans 8:28, I Thessalonians 5:18, and Philippians 4:19.

Romans 8:28 reminds us of God’s goodness. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God….” Whatever takes place in your life, remember that God designs it for your good and His glory.

I Thessalonians 5:18 teaches us to give thanks in all things. Some circumstances we don’t initially understand, and some we never would have chosen. But when we consider that God loves us and favors believers as His sons, we grow to trust the Lord’s providential hand, and in turn give Him thanks for all He does.

Philippians 4:19 encourages us that the Lord will meet our needs. Within the will of God, we can never obey to the extent that He will not sustain us, and we can never sacrifice to the degree that we become destitute. Since the Lord takes care of His own, we can trust Him with our resources.
