“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.”
(Ephesians 1: 3)
Some people do not believe that JESUS CHRIST really has control of their lives and their circumstances. They learn about the tragedies in the world, and think that He is not powerful enough to overcome all evils. Or they come across what appear to be insurmountable obstacles in their lives, and conclude that, perhaps, the Power of GOD is limited.
We do not understand everything that happens in this life, but we know from the Holy Scriptures that GOD has the final authority: “The Lord established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.” (Ps 103.19) Let’s think about the far-reaching implications of these words. The LORD has total control in the entire universe; it reigns over all that exists, and its Power is greater than any other Power.
The terms Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient are often used to describe GOD. That is, our GOD is ALMIGHTY, is everywhere, and knows everything. It means that there is nothing beyond your knowledge or your ability to direct and control. And this GOD without limits, unfathomable, free and totally in control, adopts us as his children. What a wonderful reality. By understanding this truth, peace and rest will flood our souls forever.
When we understand that nothing happens without the knowledge, direction and merciful purpose of GOD, we can leave our worries and fears, and truly experience his peace.
Dear LORD, thank you for the privilege of having Your company, Your protection and Your care in every step we take. We will be at peace, knowing that everything that happens in our lives is under Your knowledge and direction. In the name of JESUS. Amen and Amen.
