After spending the better part of an hour reciting the woes of my life to my wife, Denalyn interrupted me with a question. “Is God in this anywhere?” I hate it when she does that.
What had happened to me? I was focusing on my resources. I wasn’t consulting God. I had limited my world to my strength, my wisdom, my power. No wonder I was in a tailspin. For such moments God gives this promise: “We are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17).
The cronies of dismay, gloom, and rejection have no answer for the promise of inheritance. Tell them, “The gauge may be bouncing on empty, but I will not run out of fuel. I am a child of the living and loving God, and he will help me!” And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable.
