“I Can Handle This”

1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
How can we do this when the circumstance is tragic? Consider these truths about God:
1. God is in control – Philippians 3:21
2. God loves me no matter what I’ve done – Romans 8:35-39
3. God’s plan (His will) for me is perfect – Romans 12:2
4. God is controlling everything in my life so His plan for me will be accomplished – Philippians 2:13
5. That means that every circumstance is being controlled by God to accomplish His plan for my life & it will ultimately be for my good – Romans 8:28
No matter what the circumstance, know that God has our good in mind and He will make it happen if we just trust Him & don’t give up! – Galatians 6:9
I may not always understand it, but I trust Him! Praying that God will help us all be strong today in whatever we are facing!
