Under Control

Are you a control freak? Most of us like to be in control of our lives, but life can’t always be controlled. Too often, difficult circumstances leave us frustrated and discouraged. During times when life seems to be unraveling, we must remember Who is really in control. Jesus is the One who “upholds the universe by the word of His power (Hebrews 1:3).” Nothing that has ever happened or is currently happening in your life is ever outside the scope of His control. This means we don’t need to panic – we don’t need to react in fear that results in frustration. We can trust in His power, even when the façade of human authority fails us. Turn your panic into prayer. Rest in knowing that you are under His control.
