Stop whatever you are doing for a moment. Take a deep breath. Take a deeper one. Relax. Forget about that thing that has the muscles in your shoulders tired and achy, that has that old ulcer flaring up again, that has your mind racing so fast you can’t keep up. You have big problems, no doubt, but you don’t have any problems bigger than God. If you do, your God is too small. He must not be the God of the Bible because the Bible says, “But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:18-19. A godless person looks at the world and complains about what they do not have. A believer in Christ looks at the undeserved salvation they have received and says, “I am amply supplied.” The infidel preaches that if you want something in this world you have to go out there and take it. Those who rejoice in pleasing the Father preach, “my God will supply all your needs according to His riches.” Here at the Church of Christ we don’t just learn Bible verses and songs, we learn life skills; life skills that come from the author of life. “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” 4:11. I’ll let you in on a little secret. You can be content regardless of the circumstances you are facing. Honestly. You just have to learn how to surrender your life over to God all week long every week, all day long every day. I don’t know what you came here with this morning but I know what you could walk away with, if you will allow it to happen. Let go and find peace in God.
