Daily Reflections

A Deliberate Choice

January 29, 2024 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

“Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid.” —Isaiah 12:2

“Heaven rules” is how Robert and I, by God’s daily, enabling grace, are seeking to face all of life. Mercifully, as I’m writing today, we are looking at Robert’s two bouts with cancer through the rearview mirror, although the journey has entailed more surgical procedures, blood transfusions, needle sticks, chemo treatments, biopsies, scans, and hospital stays than we thought our two calendars (and one man’s body!) could possibly accommodate. You just make room when Heaven rules.

But even with the sense of relief we’re currently feeling on that front, we still must deliberately choose to trust and praise God each day, regardless of what He apportions to us in His all-good, all-wise design for our lives. Our confidence as we wait for Him to unfold our next season remains the same today as it was back before Robert’s diagnoses.

Heaven rules. It really is true. And no threat, no problem, whether in our own little world or in the great big world around us, can ever steal that assurance from us.
