Default God IS In Control

God IS In Control

Everywhere you go you will meet pessimistic people - people who see no hope for the future and carry an atmosphere of gloom around with them.

Rather than give in to despair, consider the greatness of God. Look back over the years and you will see many examples of the wonderful ways in which God transforms despair into hope; sorrow into joy; and defeat into victory.

When things around you appear dark and terrifying, hold onto the promises of God. Remember the mighty deeds that He has performed, and continue in confidence and with the certain knowledge that He is wholly in control.

Job replied to the Lord, "I know that You can do all things; no plan of Yours can be thwarted". Job 42:1

-- I must say, for me the idea that no plan of God can be thwarted is such a promise. The Bible also says in Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," says the LORD. "They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope." With those two promises how can we go wrong. Who are we to doubt God?

Yes, when one is in the depths of an addiction it's almost impossible to see these truths - but when that moment comes and we decide enough is enough and it's time to let go of the old ways - trust in these truths. Because the life that God planned for us is about to begin. And It's gonna be a good one!

Grace For Each Moment
