Now, I realize that my present list of potential worries is light, as in featherweight light, and that many people are burdened with true crises. Some are facing serious illnesses or the breakup of their marriage, some people are in the midst of watching their child suffer, others have even lost a child. And although I haven't experienced these things myself, I've witnessed the heartache of all of them. I also know that our worry list is never static; I'm thankful for the blessings and the absence of heartache and worry in my life today, but I'm also certain that this will not always be true. And when that day comes when I'm worried or broken I want YOU to spur me on with the truth of Hebrews 2.
Because the truth we find in Hebrews 2 applies to ALL situations: "In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to him." (v.8) What's the key word in that verse? NOTHING. There is nothing that is not subject to Jesus. He is sovereign. He is in control.
May we hold to this truth firmly in good days and bad. Jesus is on the throne. He is in control. He is good. He loves you. God left nothing that is not subject to Him. Let us believe that and live by it everyday.
