We don’t always know what God is doing (and He’s not obligated to tell us), but we do know that He is good! He’s working it all out for His good purposes. We don’t have to like it. But we do need to trust Him. That’s just the way it is!
Today is a NEW day. God gave us another day this side of heaven. So make the most of it! Enjoy! That’s just the way it is!!!
Have you ever read this verse and thought “I can do that!” You really can’t. Our individualized, American, Western mindset says, “It’s all about me! Personal power!” But it’s not. It’s all about Him. He has all the power. We’re pretty weak all by ourselves. It’s only through Jesus that we have any strength at all. So next time you read this verse, focus less on the “I” and more on the One who strengthens us (Jesus)! Our strength comes from Him and Him alone. Furthermore, it’s not something that can be earned through religious activity. This is passive! He gives us strength. That’s just the way it is!
