We can’t control the global monetary system and economic policies of foreign capitals.
We can’t control the lunacy of terrorists or anyone who will randomly take the lives of innocent people.
We can’t control what happens on Wall Street but we can control what happens on our street.
We can’t control what happens in the White House but we can control what happens in our houses.
John 16:33 in the Classic Amplified Bible says:
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]”
In school, whether it was high school or college, I must confess I always liked multiple choice questions the best.
Door # 1. . .has perfect peace and confidence.
Door # 2. . .has tribulations, trials, distress and frustration.
