God Has Control

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”


      ~ Alexander Graham Bell
 
 
“I don’t think the way you think.
    The way you work isn’t the way I work.”
        God’s Decree.
“For as the sky soars high above earth,
    so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
    and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies
    and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth,
Doing their work of making things grow and blossom,
    producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
So will the words that come out of my mouth
    not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do,
    they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.

 
          ~ Isaiah 55: 8-9
 
     Why is it so hard to remember that God’s ways are not my own?  Or your own?  I work it all out in my head.  I employ Vulcan logic to see if the event serves the needs of the many or the needs of the few, or the one…and still I do not understand.
 
     God does.  God’s thoughts intents and deeds are focused.  God’s got it all in control. Some space must be given for the realization that God does have it all in control.  Not control- freak control, God control.  Praise Him in the storm.  That is where our control can be focused.  Praise Him no matter what.  It worked for Corrie ten Boom’s sister in a concentration camp, it can work for us.  Take control right now! Praise Him in this storm.
Praise You In This Storm
      
Dear Lord,  Praise you.  Praise you in the snow, in the hurricane, in the rain, in the emotion, in the middle of a living nightmare.  Praise you for being the safe haven in whom I can set anchor. Help me to praise you every day. You have control.
 
Because of Him,
      Linda
