GOD IS IN CONTROL
Hebrews 13 Verse 5 and 6- let your conversation be without covetousness and be content with such things as ye have for he hath said I will never leave thee nor forsake thee so that we may bodly say the Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Regardless of your present condition or situation God is in control. He knows you by name and He knows your pain and heartfelt desire. He loves you with an everlasting love, He loves you with a love that is unique. He cares about you in ways that your mind can comprehend.
He hears your cry, He sees all you are going through, and He has not forgotten you. Close your eyes for a moment and just hear the voice of the Lord speaking to you, telling you I love you, I love you, I love you.
No one loves you the way God loves you. I sometimes feel sorry for unbelievers and for what they go through without God. At the point of death of an unbeliever, I am sure they are gripped with fear, fear of not knowing what is coming next, fear of not knowing what awaits after death.
Fear of the flames of hell, but that is not what happens for a child of God. A child of God experiences death with no fear because they know where they are going. They know who they are going to spend eternity with.
Revelations 21:1-4 – and I saw a new Heaven and new earth. For the first Heaven and the first earth were passed away and there was no more sea, and I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem coming down from God out of Heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
They heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, “Behold the Tabernacle of God is with men and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people and God Himself shall be with them and be their God; and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be anymore pain. For the former things are passed away, for all eternity God will be your God.
That is something to look forward to. God will be your God . That is a future to look forward to. That is what awaits you after death. What is stressing you today, it means nothing when you look at your troubles through the lens of Eternity.
For all eternity you will always be joyful. For all eternity you will never experience pain or disappointment, or sorrow; but joy. Your troubles are small in the lens of eternity. You need to know that the eye of the Lord sees all things, and the ear of the Lord hears all things. God is watching , God is listening to you. There is nothing about your life He is not aware of.
He is fully in control and He is working in ways that you cannot see. God has not fallen asleep. God is in control. Your living shows that God is not done with you. Job went through a lot of challenges and storms in his days, but he had hope in God because his breath was not taken from his nostrils.
Job knew that his redeemer lives and he trusted in Him. Job said though He slay me, yet I will trust in Him. He knew that God was aware of his predicaments true to his words in the fullness of time. God showed up in the life of Job and restored all his lost fortunes in double folds. If God did it forJob, He will do it for you, He will do it for me.
Don’t give up on God, because He is in control. There is no situation beyond God’s control. There is no challenge God cannot solve.
This is a question from the Lord, is there anything beyond His control? What is it in your life that you think is beyond God’s ability. Remember that with me it may be impossible, but with God all things are possible.
There is nothing too difficult for God to do. What seems like a challenge or a mountain before you is nothing before the Lord. Your situation may be beyond your control, but it is not beyond the ability of God.
Sometimes God allows us to pass through certain challenges so that He can strengthen our faith by the testimony; He is the Creator of the universe and He is the force behind everything on earth. Although satan is the god of this world, he is not God over the children of the Most High.
Your situation is at the mercy of God, not the devil. You and I both are under the watch of God. If Jesus is in your life, every situation is under control. Jesus cannot be confused, neither can he be threatened by any situation at all God is in control. In Mark 4:36-41 (KJV) – Jesus was in a boat with his disciples and a storm arose against the boat, but Jesus was sleeping in the same boat; the reason why Jesus could sleep in the boat is because there is no situation beyond His control. When Jesus’s disciples called upon Him, He arose and rebuked the storm, and there was a great calm.
