Day 59 | Austin Davis
The other day I was cleaning my room, like I usually do when I am stressed, and I had a realization that I have had about a million times before. I stopped cleaning my room, closed my eyes, and just stood there. I thought to myself a very simple, but forgotten, phrase: “God’s got it.” I have heard this so often in times of trouble when it seems like God is the last being who’s “got it.” Standing there thinking of this phase, I was comforted. Verse 12-15 reminds me of the type of God who has things under his control.
“When they were few in number, of little account, and sojourners in it, wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people, he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying,’Touch not my anointed ones, do my prophets no harm.’” (Psalm 105:12-15)
Sometimes it is important to rest in the simplicity of God’s will. As a Thinker, it is very difficult to just believe without facts, but it is possible to gather up the faithful facts to simply believe. There are multiple areas in life where I can temporarily forget truths that help me carry out the will of God in my life.
Whenever sight is lost on the truths of God, often times stress and confusion creep up into our lives. It is important to recenter ourselves every once and a while so that we can dwell in God’s peace – peace that is essential to carry out the perfect will of Jesus Christ.
