Who’s in control of your life—you or God?
In the past 24 hours, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life have not been in control of their lives. Children are stranded in schools; adults are stranded in their cars, stores or restaurants. Several inches of snow fell over the southeastern part of the USA causing everyone to leave their jobs or schools at the same time. Chaos ensued when too many people were trying to channel into the same path at the same time.
The good thing that has come out of all of this is that no one has been hurt and many are helping others.
Do you try to control what happens in your life? Do you trust God with everything? What happens when life/stuff happens in your life? Do you get upset about the interruption or do you trust in God that there is a reason for it?
The Scripture tells us this:
25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about yourlife, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:25-34
‘Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances’ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
So, who do you want to be in charge of your life?
