God is in control

A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps (Proverbs 16:9)

We may throw the dice, but the Lord determines how they fall (Proverbs 16:33)

This morning I woke up with these verses on my mind. They remind me that God is in control. Not man and not chance. God has determined every detail of life.

Even in the chaos and the crisis he is in control.

Even here he is in control.

I was thinking as I was driving this morning, about the story of Peter walking on water, coming out to Jesus. I was thinking to myself, wasn’t he walking on the water in the midst of a storm? I looked up the verse and in the NIV translation it says that winds were coming up against the waves. How powerful Jesus must be to be able to not only walk on water, but walk on the raging waves.

This is who I think of when I think of the God who is in control. The God who has the finesse to walk against a raging sea. He is composed and poised, not thrown off by waves. He is not thrown off by chaos and storms. He is in complete control.

And when our eyes are on him, we can walk too.

Dear God, we thank you that you are in control. Lord thank you for the verses you put on my heart this morning. The reminder that you are in control. Not man, and not chance. Lord even here you are in control. You are not moved by chaos and crisis. Lord you are in control. So, we set our eyes on you. Let our faith rest in you.

You are in control.

You are in control.

You are in control.

You are in control.

In Jesus name, Amen.
