Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up,
the seed sprouts and grows, though he does
not know how. – Mark 4:27
Do you notice the consistent things in this world? Whether you breathe or not, oxygen is there. Whether you sleep or not, morning and evening happen. Whether you move or not, time keeps rolling by and the world keeps spinning.
Our family was having a great 2021 when a challenge happened. Since worship and worry cannot occupy the same space, I felt a rollercoaster of emotions. When our eyes were on God, we would worship and trust. But when we remembered the challenge, worry would kick in. Then we’d consciously shift back to worship.
Job must have felt this way in the Old Testament. I blame it on the inconsistency of human beings when faced with adversities. But the good news is, God remains consistent in understanding us, loving us, and forgiving us. He doesn’t stop courting us to trust Him and allow Him to save us.
Yes, the world doesn’t stop spinning, but God’s Word doesn’t stop working too. Go get your blessings. – Dreus Cosio (firstname.lastname@example.org)
