“All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, “What have you done?” Daniel 4:35
So many times in life we like to think that we are in charge, well you might want think about that again. If you think somehow it all depends on you, I have what might be some alarming news for you. If you think that it’s all on your shoulders, that you are the only one carrying the ball, then you’re carrying some unnecessary weight.
I want you to understand today that the sovereign God is in control. We are mere players on the team; God is the coach, the manager, the director.
“The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD;
He turns it wherever he will.” Proverbs 21:1
“Know that the LORD, He is God! It is He, who made us, and we are His;
we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.” Psalm 100:3
We always need to be reminded of the simple fact that His actions are always right, always just, always good. No one can accuse Him with the question, “What have you done?” And are you ready for this? The sovereign God desires a relationship with you and me. Yes, the God Who created us as well as all we see around us on a daily basis wants to know us in a personal way. To make this possible, the God who
possesses all the powers of heaven and earth voluntarily humbled Himself by dying as our substitute on the cross of Calvary.
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.” Philippians 2:5–8
I take comfort of the fact the God is in charge and that He desires and has provided for us to have a relationship through His Son Jesus Christ. I’ll leave you with the question from the Apostle Paul which he asked of the Romans.
“What then shall we say to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31.
I’m thankful that He’s in charge, aren’t you?
