How can I trust that God really is in control? Is God in control?

The first question we need to ask ourselves is, “Is God really in control?” In order to trust Him, we need to know whether or not that trust is warranted. The Bible is clear that God’s will happens exactly as He purposes: “The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:” (Isaiah 14:24). This should give us strength and confidence, knowing that He is omnipotent, and that when He promises a thing, He also has the power to make it happen. God is sovereign over creation—He is the King of kings and Lord of lords (1 Timothy 6:15). What He says is going to happen, happens. Through the prophet Isaiah, God says: “…for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” (Isaiah 46:9b-10).

  1. God is sovereign in that we cannot control God. However, He has state what He will do and what HE will not do. Sadly, many people think that nothing happens but that God allows it. Nothing could be further from the truth! It’s not God’s will that evil comes to pass. Free will give way to certain aspects of the future and even the evil of the day tomorrow. God allows what we allow. God has put certain things in our command, and He has told us to resist evil, and speaking to our mountains. He hold us accountable for not only what we say, but what we do. God does not control us like robots…but if we will obey Him and surrender to the edicts of the New Covenant, things will surely go more smoother for us as we walk in faith trusting Him even as the rest of the world goes sour; which has been prophesied to do so. What God said will come to pass….the question is, what will we do with what He has told US to do?
