A little something to ponder……God is in control
A little something to ponder………………
These are the favorite words of a dear friend of mine. Whenever he encounters a difficult situation, he comforts himself by saying “God is in Control!” When I first met him I could see by his anointing that he has spent a lot of time with the Lord but because I was having a very difficult time in my own life I was not eager to always except him saying to me that God is in control! As the Lord used him to minister to me, I begin to have an appreciation of his theme words. Often times we have trials and tribulations and circumstances that seem originally designed just for us and we feel that no one could ever understand what we are going through. Because we all have our own cross to bear, we think that our problems are authentic but I am here to serve you notice.
There is nothing new under the sun and the same afflictions that are in you are also found in your brothers and sisters. There are no new problems or trials or tribulations that the enemy have created. He is using old tricks, traps and snares to hinder the Christians from accomplishing their mission here on earth. Our job is to encourage one another to keep it moving! Keep going in God! Don’t give up and don’t give in!! When you reach a situation that seems unbearable…speak the words of my dear friend and remind yourself that God is in Control!!! There are many things that the Lord will give the enemy permission to do to you just so that God can get the outcome from you that He is desiring. I know you are waiting for me to back this with the word of God so here it is. Go with me to Jeremiah 29:11. The Lord was making it clear that HE knows the plans that he has for us. It is not the plan of God for you to be depressed, oppressed, miserable, disgusted, in poverty or none of those other negative things. He sent His Son so that you may have life and that life more abundantly! There is no reason for you to think that God has turned His back on you or forsaken you because that is NOT His plan concerning you! God has big things in store for you and if He didn’t He would have told you!
God is in Control!!! God has a plan and He is working the plan in your life. Just keep pressing forward. When you come to an obstacle, don’t hesitate and don’t break just go through. When it gets dark and dreary and you find yourself crying in the night, just look to Jesus and remind yourself that you are a victor and not a victim! Keep speaking to yourself and say, “I won’t bend and I won’t break because My God is in Control!” God said that He is our Alpha and our Omega, our beginning and our end. If He is indeed our beginning and our end then surely He knows what we are going through and how we are going to get out of it. My dear sisters and brothers, this is a fixed fight and you are destined to win! All you have to do is allow God to work His plan in you.
Yes my brethren God is in control and all you have to do is trust Him with your life!
Be encouraged and know you are blessed!
