Hope for the New Year - God Is In Control

Let me share with you one of my favorite phrases. So simple. So true.

God is in control.

In the 1990s, Twila Paris came out with a song. She must love this phrase as much as I do. She said, “God is in control. We believe that his children will not be forsaken. God is in control. We will choose to remember and never be shaken. There is no power above or beside him, we know God is in control.”

Today, I just want to highlight again and again this simple, but profound statement that I utter repeatedly. Every day. Every hour. Every minute.

God is in control.

There are certain seasons of life that feel more effortless, predictable, and simple. Others are riddled with chaos, confusion, and despair.

Whether in good times or in bad, we serve a covenant-keeping God. He holds the universe in his hands. Nothing is outside of his control.

He is omniscient - all knowing. Omnipresent - all present. Omnipotent - all powerful.

In Job 42:2, Job declares to God, “that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Nothing that God wants to happen can be stopped.

Trust him. Surrender all to him. Relax in him. Enjoy your day and this new year to the full. Give God all of your junk. Don’t worry. Choose joy! Be happy!

God is in control.

God really is in control.

You can trust him in all things.
