When it’s beyond your control … be thankful!


Hi everyone,

Do you like it when something is beyond your control? Me neither. We like to feel that we’re in control … most … if not all the time. We like to make the decisions … save the day … or come to the rescue.

We definitely don’t like it when our situation or circumstance is beyond our control. That said … I submit to you … that’s when we should be thankful for our lack of control.

How many times have you been in a dicey situation … and something you thought, said, or did … made it worse?

For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.                                                  1 Corinthians 1:25

That’s my point! We are not in control of anything but ourselves … and that  … not very well.

The truth is … when we find ourselves not in control … we should happily drop to our knees and thank God. Because … our limited minds and resources don’t have to come up with the solution.

Blessedly … the problem gloriously leaps from being our responsibility … to being God’s responsibility. And thankfully, His unlimited mind and unlimited resources are more than adequate to handle anything, and everything.

My friends, I implore you … do not not rely on your own “wisdom” … which may or may not be wise. Please, in all things … call on God … ask Him … what is the wise thing for you to do … in each and every  opportunity, invitation, decision, and choice in your life.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  James 1:5

We worry, stress and fret about so many things. Why? Have we forgotten  … God’s got this … and us!

When things are beyond our control … we are in the best place we can be. Because … the One who is in control … will take over … and settle the matter.

… in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.                       Romans 8:37-39

God’s got it … have you got it?

PS … whenever you’re feeling sorry for yourself … realize this!
