It might seem like everything is out of control right now, but God has a plan for all of this. It’s really easy for us to feel scared or overwhelmed when we’re surprised. But God knows everything. He knows everything that’s ever happened and everything that ever will happen. Nothing surprises God! He’s never surprised, He has a plan for everything, and nothing can stop His plan. God’s Got everything under control.
Sometimes people are mean. How should we respond to them? Instead of being as nasty to them as they were to you (or even try to be nastier!), try being kind and merciful. Do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good!
