God Hasn’t Lost Control

sunset-5094795__340At every turn, there seems to be another “breaking news” report. There’s rising unemployment, businesses collapsing, plagues of locusts in Africa, raging fires, earthquakes, and other events we never thought we’d witness in our lifetime. With COVID-19, the brazen murder of George Floyd, injustice, racism, and violence, the entire world is in a state of turmoil. We’re bombarded with one shocking news story after another. But I’ve got Good News for you! God is still in control! Things out of our control are all in God’s control. As the old song goes, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” The Hebrew definition for the word “still” means to let go or leave alone. What’s troubling you that you need to let God handle? What are you trying to fix that’s God’s business? Challenging times demand you learn how to let go and hang on to God’s unchanging hand at the same time. It’s only then you’ll experience God’s power and manifest glory in your life.

When all hell breaks loose, seek refuge in God. I encourage you to read Psalm 46 and notice how many times it mentions “God is our refuge.” When God mentions something more than once in scripture, it’s for emphasis. He wants you to believe what He’s saying.

We’re living in a season that demands greater faith and trust in God. Now is not the time to give up or lose hope. When fear, doubt and discouragement make you feel like God has abandoned you, repeat out loud, “Lord I trust You.” God isn’t absent-minded. He hasn’t forgotten you. The salvific work of Christ argues for your victory. Each day when you awake, pray for God to give you His wisdom. Ask Him how and when to apply His wisdom.

It’s hard to remain still when circumstances scream for our attention. Yet God commands us to be still. Being still means you stop trying to fight a battle that belongs to God. Allow Him to work things out on your behalf. God is not limited by time, space, or circumstance. God hasn’t lost control.

Until next time…Be blessed!
