Do you know people who think that every thing that happens to them, happens because of what somebody else did or didn’t do? I’ve heard people say, “I don’t go to church, because my parents always made me go to church when I was a child.” I sometimes ask them if their parents made them do any other things, like brush their teeth, take a bath, and use good manners?
We can never control other people, but we can control how we look at the situations of our lives. We cannot stop all bad things from happening in our lives, but we can deal with them in the most powerful way possible, and that is according to the teachings of the Bible.
One thing we need to understand is that a moment cannot ruin our forever, because God’s mercies are new every morning. The devil is “the thief,” and his mission is to steal, kill, and destroy, but in Christ, we can stand against him at every turn, because Jesus has come that we might have life to the overflowing.
Don’t blame others for your situation. Repent of any wrong-doing on your own part and look to the future, standing on the promises of God. Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before. Wouldn’t that make a great song?
