God’s Working & German Pancakes

Romans 12:21 (easy)

Do not let bad things win against you! Instead, do good things. Then you will win against the bad things that people do.


“Is someone working on this?” A question I’ve asked many times when things weren’t going right; the internet went out, my credit card number has been compromised, the plane is still sitting on the tarmac an hour after we were scheduled to take off.

Sometimes, it’s not about the solution, as much as it’s about wanting to be acknowledged and heard, right? When the flight attendant roams through the cabin and explains the delay, it’s easier to accept the circumstances, isn’t it? Although it doesn’t change the outcome, it certainly makes it better. Someone else acknowledging the situation is often permission for me to let something go and release control of it.

In Romans 12, God is acknowledging our circumstances. He’s saying I know. I know how hard it is to remain unshaken in this world. I know you feel like you’re being taken advantage of. I know you’re tired of getting walked all over. I know it might seem easier to join them. Hang in there, I’m working on it. I’m fighting for you (see yesterday’s devo if you need a reminder of this). I’m with you and for you. You can release control of it.

God isn’t blind or oblivious to to what’s going on in the world; what’s going on with you and with me. He sees it, He feels it, and He experienced it too. You’re not alone; He has a better way and He’s right beside you, encouraging you and reminding you to remain strong in your commitment to living well and trusting Him.


What are you currently frustrated or discouraged by? Write down everything that’s been on your heart and mind recently.


Surrender all of the things you listed in your journal today. Remember that God’s working on them.
