Sometimes people who are in a position of authority like to use the phrase “It’s my way or the high way” which normally lets you know, by default, who is in control. Now, what I wonder is if God said “it’s my way or hell” would we still consider Him to be loving and kind? God, being the creator of all, has all the right in the world to use that terminology because He is in charge. Only God has the power of life and death in His hands.
In life, we must realize that even though we desire, want and pray for things if it is not in God’s will or plans, we will not get it. This is when we need to realize that He is in control of everything. God is the C.E.O. of the entire world, master of the universe, therefore it is not what we want but what God wants for us. It’s not what we think but what God thinks. We need to come to an understanding that we do not have the final word, He does.
In Isaiah 55:8-9, God clearly lets us know that,”His thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are His ways like ours.” He then tells us that the distance is, “as far as the heavens are from the earth, that is how far apart our thoughts and ways are.” 1 Samuel 16:7 relates to this by saying, “The Lord does not see things as man sees it; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Most of us are control freaks, yes we are all guilty of this, who have to be in control of everything and everyone. However, Proverbs 16:1-9 tells us that we can make all the preparations we want but when it comes down to the end of the last quarter God has the final answer/say. A mans heart devises his way but only the Lord can direct his steps. It is when we commit our works unto the Lord that He establishs our thoughts. Proverbs 3 :5-6 tells us not to lean on our own understanding but to acknowledge Him in all our ways and once we acknowledge him he will direct us. We have to be able to trust Him just as much as we think we can trust our friends, spouse and parents.
We must lose control, we have to give it up, we need to relinquish it and put it all in Gods hands. In order for us to be a success we must understand that when a mans ways please the Lord He makes even that mans enemies be at peace with him. It’s when you try to go against Gods plans that life throws you a curve ball and becomes difficult and overbearing. Then, with that curve ball being thrown in your direction, instead of being blessed you are stressed beyond words.
You will never be in control until you take Gods advice and cast all your burdens and cares onto him (Psalm 55:22 ; 1 Peter 5:7). You have to enjoy the peace that only He can give. If you don’t know about God and the special gift of His son (Jesus Christ) that John 3 :16 tells us about then go to the top of this blog.
