Giving God Control


We all want to control things. It’s human nature.

We want to control how we spend our days, how much money we earn, how our kids will turn out, how our marriage will be, and even how healthy we will stay.

But why do we seek so much control when we could surrender that control to God?

In Romans 8:28 we’re told, “God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.”

That means that when we give God control of our lives, He will be faithful to work all things together for our good.

And here’s a little secret: God is already in control. Whether we choose to surrender to Him or not, He still holds the universe in His hands.

So stop clinging so tightly to the things of this world, and recognize that God is in control and that God is good.
