The Equal Sign
"Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians15:17
When faced with tough decisions what's the right choice? Are you struggling because no matter what you do there isn't any clarity? This is an age-old dilemma, 'What's on the other side of the equal sign?' We don't like not knowing what the outcome will be and that often leads us to unwise, rash, thoughtless action and decision making. Some manipulate until they get the desired result, while others desperately try to control the outcome. Try hard as you may to get any other answer for two plus two - it will always be four.
Difficult as it may be we must let Jesus be in control of everything that concerns us. When things in life are out of my control, what can I do? Give Jesus charge of them. About four years ago I was praying, "Lord I don't know what's on the other side of the equal sign." He responded, "I am."
I can't force today to be what I want it to be. But, if I let Jesus carry me, I will be content in whatever comes. I don't always know what decision is correct or true, but He always knows. He's at the crossroads of our choices. He holds our today and tomorrow. No matter what our questions, Jesus has the answers. He truly is on the other side of the equal sign. Don't move without His leading. Don't live in fear of tomorrow; live firmly planted in His hand understanding. He has a perfect plan for you and ALL that concerns you.
