“God is in control” is a very encouraging statement. What does it mean for you? What does God being in control look like in your life? He has a plan for your life. With His plan comes a series of measures, means and actions lined up to make His plan come to pass in your life. When there are twists and turns that seem to challenge His plan for your life, He provides curves and cuts that will get you to where you should be despite the opposition. The key is to stay in faith. The key is to stay grounded in the Lord and to remain on the train of His plan without jumping off when the going gets tough. God has made promises that He will fulfill. It might take years for them to manifest but they will take place in your life. He is in control. He knows what He is doing. However, every time we step out of faith and we take the reign, we can allow chaotic situations to unfold. Trust me I know how difficult it is to keep the faith at times. I have been burned more times than I would have liked but I also deeply believe that God makes things work out for the best when we let Him be in charge. “God is in control” is a powerful statement that we need to align with in our thinking and in our hearts.
People that are put in position of control are usually knowledgeable and they are there for a good reason. They know what to do. They have experience. They have great skills and they can take care of important matters. They can anticipate problems and they foresee solutions. God is beyond knowledgeable in everything. He knows it all. He sees it all. He is above everything. He knows what to do in every single circumstance. He knew about your problems way before you were born and He provided a solution for every problem on the Cross. They is nothing that can come your way that the Lord doesn’t know how to fix. The enemy might test you, the enemy might throw some weird situations your way but the Lord will never get intimidated or panick. Present to God the curve balls that the opposition has sent to you and you will see that the Lord can handle them all. He doesn’t just have some experience, He created experience. He has skills that don’t even exist in many circles and He excels at everything He does. He excels at love, peace, joy, kindness, deliverance, healing, freedom and much more. He is the One who has so much control that things have to fall into place when He is invited into our dilemmas.
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21). We think we know what’s best way too often. We often believe that being in control will bring better results in our lives. Our plan loses versus God’s plan. If we let His plan become our plan then we are good to go. Knowing the mind of Christ is not impossible. We are partakers in His mind. We have a portion of it and that is what we should focus on when we try to figure out what to do. I like to thank God for being in control. I try to do it as much as I can. I thank Him when everything is great and I thank Him even more when everything is falling apart. God is in control of my life and I am glad He is. I spent too much time directing my own steps and stumbling all over the place. I fell too many times and used the wrong crutches to get up again. With God being in control, I know what to expect. I know that He will come through. He will cause a breakthrough and He will have the final say. “God is in control” is a beautiful statement. Make that statement each and every day and throughout all the seasons of your life!
