In Control

Written by Julie

God is in control. Despite appearances to the contrary sometimes, HE REALLY IS IN CONTROL.

That is what stuck out to me in my devotional book once. It was talking about doubt and how we need to cling to God in the hard times, then it threw that punch in.

And I started thinking: All Christians know that. We know God’s in control, we know He has a reason for everything and will work it all out for good–and yet it’s so hard to grasp sometimes. So hard to see it.

When you look around at all the pain and trouble in the world–loved ones die from car accidents, cancer, etc.; people lose their jobs; houses–homes–burn down; a virus causes shut-downs and “social distancing” and panic and even death; people drink, do drugs, steal, lie, cheat, fight, kill. . . You look at all this and sometimes it’s hard to really believe God is actually in control.

BUT HE IS.

He sees what’s going on; He cares about the people who are hurting. And He’s got a plan. Everything will work out according to His will.

Sometimes it’s hard to see past the clouds. Sometimes we might wonder if we’ll survive or ever be happy again. But even in those times, He’s in control. He’s steering you through the storm, and at the end of the storm is a rainbow.

Trust your Pilot.
