Scripture: Psalms 93:1
The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength; indeed, the world is established, firm and secure.
We all have a touch of “CONTROL” within us. We all want to know that in some way, shape or form, the things we’re doing, the choices we’re making, are ours… even if not entirely so – but majority us. Over the past few years God has taught me a tricky truth – Are you ready for this? He is sovereign! No ifs, ands, buts, maybes, or anything about it. His sovereignty extends well beyond time and space, from before my father met my mother. He was sovereign. He was sovereign not just over time, the angels, the heavens and earth; He was sovereign not just over hell, death, and the devil; but He was and is sovereign over my life!
Why’s that important? Because His sovereignty means that at the end of the day – He’s ultimately in control! To a “control freak” there are only two things worse than losing control over something: (1) realizing that you never had the control you thought you did in the first place; and (2) realizing that not only are you NOT in control, but further that you ARE BEING controlled. God decides to teach us the truth of the matter: as human-beings are concerned, it isn’t about who’s in control – it’s about how that control is used. God stresses the fact that He is king all throughout the bible – but so many people miss the most important part – the type of King God is! He’s the king who’s more interested in being your friend than being your slave-master. He’s saying “recognize Me as Your king, but serve Me as your friend.”
We should all pray that God stays in control of our lives. He is the one that makes us feel secure and comforted. The more we rely on God, the stronger our relationship will become with our Lord and Savior!
