When tragedy shouts, I command it to shut up. There are things that are continually screaming at us. These things come in the form of circumstances and situations that are always competing for our attention and always want to drown the voice of God from our lives and destinies. They are matters and issues that keep presenting themselves to us by saying, "Look at me. I am here, it is getting worse, its coming to an end, you are nothing, you are finished, you will die, etc., etc., etc." But my Bible tells me that who can bring a thing to pass when the Lord God has not commanded it, and who can instruct the Lord on what he should do? We know that the answer is no one. My advice to such adverse situations in our lives is to command those contrary voices to be silent and shut up completely. To replace every negative thing that you have heard, seen, or experience by plugging into God and his Word and filling your mind with godly images of the promise of God and the beauty of his creation and envisioning yourself in the place and position that you so desire to be. A good place that God Almighty himself desires for you to occupy.
