Who is in control in reality?
Remember, our Message is not about ourselves; we’re proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, “Light up the darkness!” and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful. (2 Corinthians 4:5, 6 MSG)
My job as a follower is to live to love. Simple, right? No way I say. As failed, flawed, sinful human beings our every breathe is about control. Control our thoughts, urges, ideas, who we love, how we live our lives. Not to judge, condemn, ridicule, persecute any human including ourselves. We must learn to love and live boldly. Being secure in this the idea, the reality, that we are not in control.
The Throne is occupied. God sits there. The one who has never left His creation is still there today as He was when it all began. As He will be until He calls us home. He is in control. Watching, waiting for His perfect timing to call us home. All is, has been, and will be in God’s control.
