God is in control...!

Even when it seems that situations are out of control, we must remember that God is never out of the picture nor is He ever out of control. God knows all. This knowledge is unique to our human perspective. We see only a few aspects of life. We can logically put things our there beyond our ability to see but in this we are merely speculating. God sees and know is all - all the time.

As you walk through your week with Him - seek to grow in faith knowing that God has it all worked out. He allows somethings to occur (His permissive Will) to grow us. He directly brings things into our lives to teach is. He knows the choices we will make and He knows the consequences of those choices. Faith is the key to living not in a state of worry nor fear but in peace with God sitting in the drivers seat of our life and our hands off the steering wheel.

Is God in control of our life? Now that is the question that we all need to focus on.

James 4:7-17
7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
11 Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?
13 Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit";
14 whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
15 Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that."
16 But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.
17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
