He Is Still In Control

In the UK we have entered into another national lockdown. The frustration levels are high, anxiety has gripped millions, and jobs will be lost. In this confusing time we may decide to take control, as we think God and others are taking too long and our prayers are not being answered. 

We all have things we’re believing for, situations we want to see changed, and dreams God has placed in our hearts. But sometimes because of difficulties, we try to figure out how it’s all going to happen. Then we try to take control and start to tell God how to do it, when to do it, and where to do it! Scripture tells us that God’s ways are not our ways. They are so much higher and better. So we must continue to trust Him despite the times.

Today, as you move deeper into these uncertain times it’s clear things won’t happen on your timetable, but instead of getting discouraged and down, why don’t you believe that God has something better in store? Just because it doesn’t happen your way, doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. God has a plan. He’s got it all figured out. Don’t limit Him by trying to get it done your way. Instead, tell God, “I trust You. I believe You have my best interests at heart, and even if it doesn’t happen my way, I’m going to stay in faith that You are still in total control.” 

“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9, NIV) 

Let’s Pray
Yahweh, thank You for blessing me throughout my life, Today I choose to trust in You despite life’s uncertainties. Father, I cast my cares on You. I give You my plans, dreams and desires for the future. God, I will stay in faith as You work things out on my behalf. I receive Your peace as I wait patiently to see Your plan unfold in my life, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

Good morning Pastor. God bless you and give you his blessings in double measure. I’m Brian from Kenya, you once preached at Parklands Sda and after the sermon, you called those with burdens and you prayed for me. My right chest, armpits and ribs and lower part of the neck were wasting away in pain and the Doctors had told me they don’t see any disease. I was almost dying. When you prayed, I heard the muscles in my chest pull apart and from that moment, I became well to date. I know there is nothing God cannot do. Pray for me to have the perfect peace of God in my life because I lack it. Peace that surpasses all understing. Pray God that he breaks the chains of Satan in my life and all generational curses and addictions. I want to be a General of God like Joshua, bold and Courageous, because the fears of Satan are casting a snare in my heart. Nothing is working out for me, but God has been Gracious. That is my prayer request. I love God. Thank you.
