God Wins!

I am a Christian pastor who wishes to bring glory to God in all that I do, and to help people through my writing to know Him better.


God Will Take Care of You!

I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

Why Do We Worry?

Life is so full of problems that we can, at times, be overwhelmed by it. We have financial burdens, work problems, family emergencies, sickness and the death of loved ones. There is much more that could worry us if we look at it from an earthly perspective. And as if we don't have enough to worry over, there are the dangers that our country faces, such as the real possibility of financial collapse due to the sheer weight of debt that we are incurring. And what about the war on terror. It seems that we see no end to the things that can take away our sleep at night.

There is an old saying that I like to repeat on days that I'm tempted to be worried: "I don't know what the future may hold, but I know Who holds the future." We can simply go to the end of God's Word and see that God wins! And because I am a child of the living God, I win as well! What a comforting fact to know that He has it all under control. There is nothing that can happen to me that He hasn't allowed for His glory and my good! And if that is the case, then why do I worry!

I read this quote once from an anonymous author. It states: "The Bible never once says 'figure it out.' But over and over it says to 'trust God, He's already got it figured out." This is a comforting thought when going through the fires of life.

I. I'm Here for a Reason

I love the verse Jeremiah 29:11. Though it was originally spoken to God's people Israel, it equally applies to His people in any era. God tells us:

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

In Romans 8:28,29 Paul states:

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

Ephesians 2:10 explains this to us:

"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."

The Greek word for "workmanship" is "poiema" and literally means, "that which is made."

It signifies that which is manufactured. A product, a design produced by an artisan. From this word, "poiema" we get our English word "poem." We are literally God's poem, His work of art. The Lord has made us what we are. He has saved us and created us to live a life of good deeds which He Himself has prepared for us to do. Once again, we are here for a reason, and God will not rest until that reason is fulfilled in our lives.

II. God's Plans Will Come to Pass

We have to realize, if we are to live life to its fullest, without fear and regret, that God's plans for us ultimately can never fail. In the book of Philippians Paul tells us:

"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus" (1:6).

The Lord is the author and completer of our salvation, and nothing in Heaven and earth can do anything to keep Him from it, or separate us from His love (Romans 8:38,39). God's poem will be complete!


The more we worry about tomorrow, or complain about our seeming lack of progress today, the less time we will have on this earth to do what we were designed to accomplish; To bring glory to our Creator. Corrie TenBoom once said:

"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength."

Let us stop spending the precious time that we have worrying about what we can't do anything about anyway. And let us stop losing sleep over what might happen. Allow the Lord to think about that. He never sleeps anyway.

      I like Corrie Ten Boom's quote. Why worry when we know the One who's in charge?

      Although I have heard it before, I like your quote, "I don't know what the future may hold, but I know Who holds the future." We just need to hold on to that. Thanks GodTalk.
