Murphy’s Law is a theoretical idea that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. Of course, it is not a universal constant like gravity or the Law of conservation of Mass, but it sure feels like it sometimes. Have you ever been in one of those situations where everything around you seems to be falling apart? I sure have! And it can be really tough to have a positive outlook on the world around you when nothing seems to be going your way.
When I was at the Follow Conference in Cincinnati this past December with the Six Points Youth Group, I was stressed beyond my limit. Murphy’s Law was in full effect. All of my meticulous planning had gone by the wayside as everything was falling apart. I didn’t even know if we were going to have rooms to stay in that night. I was terrified because I didn’t have the answer to the hundreds of questions I was being asked. I forgot that God DID have all the answers.
It’s easy to forget that God is always on the throne—no matter what. Sometimes, in the midst of stress and worry, the best thing we can do is rely on God. God IS a universal constant. His love for us never fails. And He is always seeking to secure us in His Will. When life is out of control, and nothing is going the way you had planned, remember that God is still on the throne. Follow in His example. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” Romans 5:1-2
