GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL.*
1 John 5:19 ► *And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.*
*Insight and Highlight*
Though the world lies in wickedness, we must live with the consciousness and full assurance that God is still in control.
Everyone must have the underlying conviction that Satan is the evil one in this world. He is behind every idol, witchcraft, confusion and tragedies etc..
This world lies in wickedness because Satan has a considerable control in this present age. He is the evil one;
Luke 13:16 ► *And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?*
He is the god of this world, 2 Cor 4:4 ► *In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.*
God is still in control, He is sovereign but has limited His power and rule over the world.
He is in control because while all these evil was happening, He came to die, John 3:16 and while they are still happening He is still reconciling the world to Himself through Christ Jesus 2 Cor 5:18-19.► *And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;*
*To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.*
Let us be aware that whatever happens in this world happens for a reason in order to achieve a Divine purpose.
God is not passive but He is present and active and nothing that had happened or is happening or about to happen is beyond God's knowledge.
Though not all that happen to us is His perfect will, all that happen are still open to Him and happen under His permissive will, ref Job 2:6
Nothing is hidden from God, so no event or creature is hidden from Him.
Luke 12:2 ► *For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.*
*Call to Word action.*
He knows all things, even before they happen: Isaiah 48:5 ► *I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
As you battle life's trouble, believe God is in control.
Always remember, God works *"...all things according to the counsel of his will ...."* Eph 1:11
Ps 73:26 *My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.*
Lord, though, my flesh and my heart may faint or fail, please be my strength and stay in control of my life, in Jesus name
Good morning all and have a blessed day, today.
God bless you.
