God Is: Powerful Sustainer

, by Christopher D. Hudson

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

The first words in the Bible are, “In the beginning God.” While we might not understand all the intricate details and secrets of life, we can hold on to this: God set the universe in motion and sustains it. Paul wrote, “He is before all things, and in [Jesus Christ] all things hold together” (Colossians 1:17). Nothing is too hard for God. (See Jeremiah 32:17.)

Are you going through a difficult situation in your life right now? Are there circumstances that you cannot understand? Instead of trying to fix it or control it, rather than trying to figure out the what, when, where and why of your struggle, focus instead on God your sustainer.

 What circumstances do you face that only God can change? 
Do you trust him to do that? 
Do you have trouble believing that nothing is too difficult for God?

Thought to focus on: God Is Your Sustainer.
