A NEW LEASE ON LIFE
Things weren’t going well for Bill. He’d just been diagnosed with skin cancer and was soon to be laid off from his job. That morning he bowed humbly before the Lord and pleaded, “I need a new lease on life.” However it happened, the Holy Spirit led him to John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Bill left for work knowing that no matter what happened to him, he was in the hands of God. That was his new lease on life.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
