God Can Handle It
I will lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence comes my help?
My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1-2 NKJV
It’s a promise that is made over and over again in the Bible: Whatever “it” is, God can handle it.
Life isn’t always easy. Far from it! Sometimes, life can be very, very difficult, indeed. But even when the storm clouds form overhead, even during our most stressful moments, we’re protected by a loving Heavenly Father.
When we’re worried, God can reassure us; when we’re sad, God can comfort us. When our hearts are broken, God is not just near; He is here. So we must lift our thoughts and prayers to Him. When we do, He will answer our prayers. Why? Because He is our shepherd, and He has promised to protect us now and forever.
God is God whether we recognize it or not. Nothing about that can change, except us. - Lisa Whelchel
Either we are adrift in chaos or we are individuals, created, loved, upheld and placed purposefully, exactly where we are. Can you believe that? Can you trust God for that? - Elisabeth Elliot
God is in control, and therefore in everything I can give thanks, not because of the situation, but because of the One who directs and rules over it. - Kay Arthur
The choice for me is to either look at all things I have lost or the things I have. To live in fear or to live in hope. Hope comes from knowing I have a sovereign, loving God who is in every event in my life. - Lisa Beamer
Heavenly Father, You never leave or forsake me. You are always with me, protecting me and encouraging me. Whatever this day may bring, I thank You for Your love and Your strength. Let me lean upon You, Father, this day and forever. Amen
