In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven; for He gives His sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. – Matthew 5:45 (NLT)
We all are subject to laws of nature and the consequences of actions beyond our control. Yet, through Jesus Christ, we have the ability to find the “silver lining” which others may miss, to live on our inheritance as God’s children and to share from the overflow of His abundance. Jesus experienced the worst the world had to offer, yet He made it possible for us to survive, thrive, and shine.
When I am overwhelmed, confused or feeling out of control, I pray for Your calming presence. Show me how my current circumstances are only temporary and how You and Your love for me will shine through.
