Under God’s Circumstances

Some Christians talk about their circumstances as if those circumstances have the final word on their life. “Well, under the circumstances …,” they say, as if that settles the question. It does not—there is more to be said. God always has the last word, and for believers, it is always a good word.

You see, God has circumstances of His own. He has a plan and a purpose, a will and desire. He has a kingdom, a rule and a reign. He invites us to partner with Him in it all, and Jesus taught us how to do that.

We pray:
  • Kingdom of God, come!
  • Will of God, be done!
Are there any circumstances that can stand up to that? I don’t think so.

Get up under God’s circumstances by getting into agreement with His Word. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness (God’s way of doing and being right) and everything will be taken care of.
