*Since I am on vacation this week, I thought it would be a good time to repost an old one from August 2011 – with a little updating 🙂
Ever notice how much we all desire control? We want to be in control of our own lives. At times we want to be in control of the lives of others as well.
According to dictionary.com, control means “to exercise restraint or direction over; dominate; or command.”
There is only One who has complete control & that is God.
“The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, & His sovereignty rules over all.” (Psalm 103:19).
Let’s clarify just what He has complete & unlimited control over…
“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.” (Philippians 3:20-21 NIV).
“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command.” (Hebrews 1:3 NLT).
Did you catch it?
Everything is under His control & He sustains everything.
There is not a single thing that we can face in any given day that is not in His control. He is not guessing. He never thinks He should have gone with Plan B. He never makes a mistake.
He is always at work & always working it out.
Whatever each of us is facing today is completely under His control. May that truth bring us peace today.
