No matter what you are facing in life, it is important to remember that God never said “He wouldn’t give you more than you can handle.” Actually, What He says is: “He will never give you more that He can handle!” He is not in crisis and as we keep our eyes focused on Him, He will sustain us through rough waters and heavy storms. Even the disciples were amazed that the winds and waves obeyed Him, in Matthew 8:23-27.

As life sometimes rolls through our world like a tornado or hurricane, remember, you are the “apple of His eye” Zechariah 2:8. He knows everything you are facing and sees what you cannot in the big picture. He knows how everything is going to turn out and how you will get through this.

In 2 Chronicles 20, King Jehoshaphat was in the worst way and in the worst time to be the King of Judah, as it was reported that the neighboring nations had conspired against the nation of Judah and were attacking from the North, South, East & West. Even the person that doesn’t know their geography can recognize that this is from every side.  Their names didn’t matter (Moabites, Ammonites, Meunites & Edomites) The “Ites” were coming! Jehoshaphat prayed and God’s response was simple: “The battle is mine tomorrow!” and sure enough, God rerouted all of the armies and sent them running and battling each other.

God is wanting for you to trust Him and to lay your fears, frustrations, mountains and battles down because His is more than able. “Even the winds and waves obey Him!” Have a blessed week. God Speed!
