Today is National Everything You Do Is Right Day. It sounds kinda proud, but the main idea is that everything is going to go your way today. Normally, we’d say you would ace your test today, or score the winning goal today…but the reality is that for many of you–you’re at home today. But don’t let that stop you–we just have to change our focus. Today all you do is going to work out great–maybe you’ll help your mom make cookies, or maybe you’ll read a great book. But more importantly–today will work out the way it’s supposed to because God is in control. So everything is right today. Even if everything seems wrong today.
God is good all the time. His ways are way beyond our understanding, and there is chaos in the world. You may be hearing things on the news about sickness, people out of work, things closing down–and it can make you worry. But God will make everything right today. He is here in the middle of all of this. He is watching over you. He will never fail you.
9 “So remember that the Lord your God is the only God, and you can trust him! He keeps his agreement. He shows his love and kindness to all people who love him and obey his commands. He continues to show his love and kindness through a thousand generations… 21 Don’t be afraid of them, because the Lord your God is with you. He is a great and awesome God.
Deuteronomy 7:9, 21 (ERV)
Dear Father, Forgive me for being afraid and worrying, and for being selfish during this time. Help me to care for others, help me to remember that you are faithful and you will meet all my needs. Amen.
