“All things have been committed to me by my Father.” Matthew 11.27
In many ways this sounds like a perfectly simple statement, but the truth behind it is quite astounding. Jesus is saying that there is nothing that has not already been handed over to him. Nothing! This includes everything that you will experience or go through today.
From time to time we all have to face things that we don't look forward to, and today might be a difficult day for you. If so, try applying this verse to the things you are facing. Everything in this day has been committed to Jesus by the Father. In other words, God has looked over this day and out of his love, he has handed the events in it to Jesus. Whatever you will go through today is already in the hands of Jesus.
Your attitude to the day can change by standing on this truth. Rather than dreading what you have to face, or approaching it with anxiety, face it in the knowledge that it is already in the hands of Jesus.
If you are facing something hard today or in the days ahead, see it now in the hands of Jesus. He is holding it for you and he is there already, because it has been committed to him by the Father.
