You may have recently heard some news that disturbed you, but God has the last say. Not your job. Not your enemies or even your friends. God does. Final doesn’t mean final unless God says so. I have seen people outlive final dates given by doctors. I’ve seen people still living in homes that the bank gave final foreclosure notices to. We must condition our minds to react ONLY to God’s word. Final say is a privilege reserved for God and God alone. So whenever you hear something that concerns you, your first reaction should be ‘We’ll see what God has to say about that’. Then, even if the situation doesn’t change, if God has spoken, you know he’s got everything in control.
Proverbs 16:1 – Good News Translation – We may make our plans, but God has the last word.
