Three simple but powerful words. Sometimes in the storms of life, we get distracted, overwhelmed, discouraged, or scared. Our problems seem insurmountable. It is in the depths of our despair that we need to remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness. No matter how difficult the situation, we serve a “greater than” God who is able as Ephesians 3:20-21 says to do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever...”
We need never carry any burden alone. Nor do we need to analyze the size of our issue to evaluate whether it’s worthy of God’s attention. Psalm 68:19 says “Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.” God is omnipotent, meaning He is all-powerful. Nothing is too hard for Him! There are no limits to His power. God is omnipresent, meaning He is everywhere at the same time. His presence and attention to your issue do not reduce His availability anywhere else. God is omniscient, meaning He is all-knowing. Nothing takes God by surprise. Revelation 22:13 says God is “the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” He knows the end from the beginning, so it stands to reason that He knows everything in between.
Proverbs 12:25 says “Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, But a good word makes it glad.” The next time you feel anxiety rising, remind yourself that you are connected to the one who holds all power. Remind yourself that God’s GOT this!
