“Job replied to the LORD: I know that You can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted.” – Job 42:1
Everywhere you go you will meet pessimistic people – people who see no hope for the future and carry an atmosphere of gloom around with them.
Rather than give in to despair, consider the greatness of God. Look back over the years and you will find many examples of the wonderful ways in which God transforms despair into hope; sorrow into joy; and defeat into victory.
When things around you appear dark and terrifying, hold onto the promises of God. Remember the mighty deeds that He has performed, and continue in confidence and with the certain knowledge that He is wholly in control.
Almighty God and loving Father, my heart’s knowledge that You are in control allows me to be courageous even in dark days. Guide me on Your path and keep my faith strong. Amen.
