What Do You Really Control?
What do you really control? Control is described as ” The power to restrain something, one’s emotion or actions, a mean of limiting or regulating something”. I have considered this question of control often and have concluded that I really control very little unless my control is toward obedience. I believe that God is speaking about control over the universe in Isaiah 40:21:22.
Have ye not known? have ye not heard?
hath it not been told you from the beginning?
have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth,
and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;
that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain,
and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
God is absolutely in control of everything and everybody in the universe. He is the Chief Executive Officer, President, Judge, Doctor, Jury, and of course our savior. The only thing that God does not control is our obedience towards him. He allows us to choose to obey and when we choose to obey him God then releases the blessings into our lives daily. Therefore, in some aspect you really control a great amount of things but they all come through one thing and that one thing is obedience. Obey God’s desire in giving of your tithes, offering and first-fruit and control your finances. Obey God’s desire by eating the proper food and portion sizes and control your health. Obey God’s desire by loving your wife as he loved the church and control your marriage. Finally, obey God’s word and control your destiny. I pray I see you all this week as we enter our spring revival in preparation for our Easter celebration.
