God is Still in Control

Whatever you’re going through, He’s in control of it! He’s allowing you to go through it for a reason. Remember that His strength is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). You might not understand what’s going on at the moment, but keep in mind that God is still God and He is still bigger than whatever you are facing.

He’s the almighty God. He’s a Sovereign God. He is El Elyon. He is El Shaddai. He created you; He knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). He knows the end from the beginning; He knows exactly how much you can bear. He promised that He will not allow you to go through more than you can bear (Romans 8:11), so whatever you are struggling with, it might be financially, relationship wise, trying to find the right job or even trying to figure out the next step to take in life, keep in mind that God will see you through. He wants you to trust Him completely!

It might be hard to handle by yourself, but with God nothing is too hard. He created the heavens and the earth. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and that’s the same God you and i serve today. Again, nothing is too hard for Him. “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you” (Jeremiah 32:17).

You can overcome anything, because that power that raised Christ from the dead is the same power that lives within you (1 Corinthians 10:13).

God loves you; He’s molding you into something beautiful. Everything you are going through right now is just temporary. Though you can’t see it yet, He is getting ready to bless you. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Hang in there; God has great things in store for you. Be obedient to Him and he will give you the desires of your heart. Ahhh obedience – one very important aspect! Obedience is the key to our blessings. “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33).

Remember, that power that raised Christ from the dead is the same power that lives within you – He has already overcome it all. Don’t you dare give up!!! “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).

Hang in there! 😉
