We always hear the saying, "Let go, and let God," but sometimes we just can't help but try to take control over things especially when we're overwhelmed with our situations. We fear failure. We fear defeat. The more we try to control our situation, the more it becomes a mess. We have so many "what if" questions in our mind that we couldn't stop worrying and trying to figure things out on our own.
It's normal to feel fear, but Jesus asks us to step out in faith and TRUST in Him. And only in Him.
Even if we don't get our questions answered, we should still have faith in Him and in His sovereignty. When I read the book "Dug Down Deep" by Joshua Harris for the second time, I was reminded of God's sovereignty...
...over the universe (Hebrews 1:3),
...over every kingdom and earthly authority (Psalm 47:8),
...over the human heart (Proverbs 21:1), and
He knew us ever since the beginning of time and He has plans for us which are good, pleasing and perfect. So why try to take control? God owns the universe. He created it. He holds the entire world in His hands. He's bigger than anything else and is infinite. No human mind can ever comprehend to what He has in mind. So why not hand Him your problems?
"To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue. All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord. Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. The Lord works out everything to its proper end — even the wicked for a day of disaster." - Proverbs 16:1-4 (NIV)
