God Is in Control

It seems like many things in our lives are spiraling out of control. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten the health of all of us. The social unrest is creating more division in our country. The political battles are doing more harm than good for American citizens. The economic struggles many are facing are turning their lives upside down.

Fear, worry, anxiety, hopelessness, anger, and depression are running rampant. It is easy to become overwhelmed with all the chaos and uncertainty in our lives. What can we do to gain back control? The best thing for us to do is to admit that we can’t control these things, but God can. In fact, God is fully in control of everything that is happening, and He is executing His perfect plan.

Like Job said, “I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted” (Job 42:2). God is not worried about all the chaos and confusion. Thankfully, He is working behind the scenes to bring about good to those of us who love Him (Ro. 8:28). We can say, like David, “When I am afraid [or anxious or hopeless or overwhelmed], I will put my trust in You” (Ps. 56:3). Let’s put our confidence and trust in God. He’s in control.
