God never panics!

Because God never panics, neither should you. You may be facing a mega crisis right now. Circumstances may seem insurmountable. You may be tempted to say : “it’s impossible!” Everything is against me and it looks like there is no way out, through, over or around this one. But the good news is: “All things are possible to them who believe.” Jesus can make a way, even if there is no way! Don’t panic, make no mistake, God loves you and Jesus is your answer. He can bring you through your darkest night.

His eyes are upon the righteous and His ears open to their prayers.

You won’t hear Him shouting one day: “Angels! Why wasn’t I told of this situation, what are we going to do?!” You won’t see God running for the Panadol or Advill, because He is stressed or worried concerning the crisis you are in. He is not sweating the outcome. The enormity or complexity of your problem does not overwhelm Him.

Why? Because God is greater! He is greater than the greatest man, greater than the problem, He is greater than your failures. He is greater than anything. He is greater than whatever life may throw at you. As Joel Osteen would say: “If life throws you lemons, make a lemonade.”
