This Sunday at Church: Share a Bible Verse with someone that God is in Control

October 18, 2020 by SLIMJIM

This Sunday at Church I want to encourage you to do the following: Share a Bible verse with someone that God is in control.

There’s a lot going on at the time I write this.  There’s 126 nights of destruction that still continue on daily in some parts of America.  There’s an upcoming election. And there’s the virus and the response to the riot.  There’s so much more to say of what’s going on!

In all this it is easy to be discouraged.

So this might be a good practice: Share a Bible verse with someone that God is in control.  It can be to someone who is going through trials (though I also would say if you do share that with that person be wise and pastoral in how you share that).  It can even be a friend who outwardly doesn’t seem to be going through trials or are affected by difficult circumstances.  Sometimes people go through things that you don’t know about; or even if you are right there’s not a major trial in their life, still it is good to share this truth as dealing with suffering has a “preventative medicine” side in that its good to know certain biblical truths ahead of time before we go through the crucible of life.

Here are three verses you can share; what other verses can you add?  Drop us a comment!

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

“The mind of man plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” (Proverbs 16:9)

“Many plans are in a man’s heart, But the counsel of the Lord will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21)

I know sometimes with some people they can get uncomfortable with someone sharing a Bible verse with them.  Or it might be they are not accustom to you sharing them Bible verses.  What I find helpful sometimes is to share with them how that passage applies to you, sometimes it’s helpful to share the application you get out of a passage.  Also for some people they might not be encouraged to know how a passage can work in their own life when they see it being applied in your life, to address your own vulnerabilities and worries.
