My ipad was on the bathroom counter (note to self: never take the ipad into the bathroom… what was I thinking?!). I lifted a hand towel and watched helplessly as the ipad tumbled toward the toilet (note to self: remind family members to put the toilet lid down…I know it’s hopeless cause but one can always keep trying.). Then something incredible happened, instead of crashing into a watery toilet grave, the ipad took a totally unexpected turn and fell harmlessly onto a padded carpet.
In the span of 5 seconds I felt horror, despair, anger, relief, joy and exultation… it wasn’t even 7 a.m. and I was exhausted!! I stared at the ipad and thanked God. Something that could have gone terribly wrong, went right.
Every day there are hundreds of things that “go right.” Even on those terrible, no good, very bad days we can find something that went right. Each one is an opportunity to thank God and fix our eyes on the Author of faith, hope and love.
The enemy wants you to focus on what goes “wrong” today. Refuse to give him any ground. Thank God every time something goes right! Then, just to remind the enemy of joy Who’s really in charge… thank God for the things that go wrong. Claim His power, sovereignty and promise to cause all things to work together for His good!
