Is God in control or are you in control of your life?

I am tackling a huge subject today…..the leadership of God in our lives. I have been having this conversation with people latley. The question that most people ask themselves on a daily basis( at least a few times a month) is who am I and what am I doing with my life? It is a very popular question in the minds of many, especially when you are graduating high school or college. The whole world wants to know two things: identity and purpose.

I have a better question to ask then these two popular ones. The question is do you believe that God is in control of your life? Do you believe that God knows what he is doing? I think many times we miss the opportunity to taste the rain and ponder the extravagence of creation. I mean come on……God created the world. Not only did he create this tiny little earth, but he created everything. God is on his throne and nothing will move him, nothing will stand in his way. Many times we don’t stop and think that God has the whole wide world in his hands, he has us in his hands. Many times we think that God is afraid or insecure about his creation. I have thought to myself many times that God is afraid of my weakness, that he doesn’t really know what to do with my weakness. NO!

NO WAY! God is unafraid and unintimidated at my weakness and my shortcomings. God is in control of our lives. he knows exactly what to do to get us to choose him and to see him. He knows exactly what it will take to cause me to worship him.

So, in conclusion, the next time you battle with control of your life and wanting to do things your way, remember who you are dealing with, GOD. Remember the power that he has, remember his burning heart towards you and me. Remember how unmoved he is about our weakness, he is not afraid of our shortcomings.

  1. This is such a huge topic to tackle. While it is logical to believe that God, in His infinite wisdom can be a good leader, it is infinitely harder to actually trust His leadership. This is certainly something that I have struggled with and something that I have had to learn: I am not a better leader than God. His leadership is perfect and I have to build a history of trusting Him. Prov. 3:5-6 for real.

  2. Tracey,
    I am so glad that you responded to my blog. It is so easy to forget this glorious lesson because we think we can control our lives and live freely without him. I woul d put this in the category in the ‘mystery of lawlessness.”
