                                                                                     God is in Total Control
The year of 2023 has finally come to an end. As you begin the New Year 2024, are you feeling that many issues in your life are too perplexing for you to understand? Do you feel that all of the fight in you is waning? Or, when you lack the knowledge and are not familiar enough with various things that affect your daily life; know that you can always find strength, wisdom, knowledge, salvation and comfort from the things that are written in God’s word. Christians must go about their lives focusing on the things that are important and aligned with the will and word of God; and He will see you through. As you begin your Christian walk in the year to come, here are a few things to meditate on daily:

1. The God we serve is strong and mighty. “The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:14) “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
2. The God we serve is wise. “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” (Proverbs 2:6) “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5)
3. God is Sovereign and He is in total control over all things. God is above all things and before all things. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end…” (Revelation 21:6)
4. God knows all things past, present, and future. “Oh, the depth of the riches both of wisdom and knowledge of God!” (Romans 11:33). “Ah, Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for you.” (Jeremiah 32:17)
5. God wants us to come unto Him with prayer and thanksgiving. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7)
6. God will never leave us or forsake those that belong to Him. “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you” (Deuteronomy 31:6). He will not leave you nor forsake you.” “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5)
When it comes down to brass tacks, God can handle anything. He can take care of all of your problems. He can solve every pressing issue. In 2 Chronicles 20:17 God says to Jehoshaphat, “You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the LORD on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the LORD is with you.” God tells Jehoshaphat in this passage and what He would remind us of today is this, the battle is not yours; it’s Mine. When life’s issues, cultural mores of the day, evil and ungodly people or doctrines taught by false teachers weigh heavily on you, turn to God. He freely gives wisdom, fights our battles, knows what is ahead long before we experience it and will keep us safe from all alarms.  (Adapted)
