Daily Devotional: “God Is In Control Even When Your Plan Stalls” By Rick Warren

Don't Focus On What You Can't Do. Focus On What God Can Do!

“Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing” (Romans 4:17b NLT).

How do you know when you’re at a dead end? You know it when things get out of your control and you can’t do anything about it.

When you’re stuck and waiting for deliverance, you need to remember what God can do. The situation may be out of your control, but it’s not out of God’s control. When you face a dead end, don’t focus on what you can’t do. Focus instead on what God can do.

Romans 4:17b says, “Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing” (NLT).

Here are two things God does that you can’t do: He can give life to the dead, and he can create something out of nothing. If God can give life to a dead man, he can give life to a dead career. He can bring life to that dead marriage. He can bring life to that dead dream. He can bring life to that financial dead end.

Be encouraged today, that no matter what you may be going through, God is still in control!
