Is God In Control?

 

God is sovereign but that doesn’t mean that He is control of every little thing. Sovereign means “in charge” not “in control.” “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men” (Psalm 115:16). God gave man control here. That’s why it’s so messed up. He also isn’t a God who is watching from afar off. He is working all things for our good. That’s also why we have prayer. It is God’s way of getting permission to help us. Things happen and people say God allowed it. It’s not that God allowed it; He isn’t in control of evil. Accidents happen.

We can ask God each day to watch over us and protect us. We can plead the blood over our family. He also gives us wisdom. Jesus said to be wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16). This metaphor is not about Satan. It’s just saying, the world is a hostile place and we need to be crafty and cunning. For example, that means we need to drive defensively. We need to take proper precautions. We need to use wisdom in our daily lives. Don’t operate in fear and be anxious, but rest in Jesus and allow Him place in your life.
