Out of Control

God is All Powerful

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

We are taught to be in control -- to take control of our lives and our circumstances. The recent terrorist acts and threats, suspicious wars and rumors of more wars, Ebola outbreak, drought, volcanos, earthquakes and a guarded economy that does not seem to cooperate with our hopes and dreams for an abundant life…. What an eye opener when we understand who really is in control – an all-powerful God who has the whole world in His hands! And with this revelation comes hope and a sense of freedom. We are ultimately not in control. We can trust God, who is good and who has a plan for us.
Look up!

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Because God is all powerful, we can trust that He is in control of all the circumstances in our life.
