At this time of ‘lockdown’ – a place that most of us have never been before or could have ever imagined – it is so easy to get caught up in the grumblings, the worries, the uncertainty, etc. But I keep hearing the Spirit of the Lord saying, “Don’t think on the things that are pressing in on you right now, but instead, set your mind on these things:
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”*
Yes, life is still disrupted, uncomfortable, frightening, but we know the One (our Heavenly Father) who has us in the palm of His hand and is working all things together for good to those who love Him!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
