You must fear the Lord your God and worship him and cling to him. Deuteronomy 10:20 (TLB)
A few years ago I had a health scare. I was so freaked out by it that I didn’t share it with even my prayer chain. It shook me to the core. I spent a lot of time wondering if it was going to happen again and if my life would suddenly end. In the midst of all this I started praying. And eventually found again the text that says “You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.” (Job 14:5 NLT) Then I remembered; God is in control. You see, we can’t control everything that is going to happen. We don’t even know what today is going to bring. But we do know who holds today and that is who we should cling to. Clinging to Jesus will not change our circumstances but getting through them will be sweeter and we will be at peace.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. Romans 8:38 (NLT)
