Presidential Weekend Wisdom: Power

There is a lot of information and misinformation being thrown at us but just remember these wise words when life gets confusing and overwhelming:

“If we trust in Him, keep His word, and live our lives for His pleasure, He’ll give us the power we need – power to fight the good fight, to finish the race, and to keep the faith.”

– Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States

God bless you and God bless America!

Weekend Wisdom: Who is Bigger?

Happy Saturday!

Meditate on the following quote this weekend:

Are my problems bigger than God or is God bigger than my problems?

Our biggest problem is our small view of God.

Mark Batterson, Draw the Circle, The 40 Day Prayer Challenge (pg 56)

Our assignment this weekend is to pray that God will help you realize that His grace and power know no limits. There is no problem bigger than our God, not even the election, Marxism, Communism, Socialism, rioting, and looting. They and other problems are teeny tiny compared to God.

Weekend Wisdom: What God Gave Us

Here are scriptures to help you deal with the panic that is gripping our country.

Yes, we were given self-control. That is why people are buying up toilet paper.

Am I panicked over this situation – no.

I am living my life as normal, getting up stumbling across the hall and working my virtual logistics job, walking across the yard to get the mail, and going to the grocery store and the drug store.

All will be well because even though the Corona virus is in the air – God is STILL on the throne.

He’s got this.

He knew about COVID-19 and all the other germs, bacteria and viruses before He created the heavens and earth.

So stay calm and remember what Jesus (God the Son) said:

33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33
English Standard Version
(ESV)

Yes indeed, He overcame the world by dying on the cross and rising from the grave 3 days later.

There is no need to panic, just take appropriate precautions…and quit hoarding the toilet paper.

Now I am off to the grocery store.
