Many times in the trials of life, we want to control things. The way the current pandemic is impacting the world right now is revealing what we can and cannot control. Of course, control is not a bad thing. God has given us the ability to make our own choices, and that’s good. Often bad things happen when we make poor choices or when we don’t handle things well.
On the other side of things, there are things that we cannot control. When we try to handle things we cannot control, all sorts of problems come into our lives, and we experience stress. The best way to handle things we cannot control is by giving them to God. While we have limited ability and capacity, God has unlimited ability and capacity. God is able to control and handle everything we cannot.
In the book of Romans 8:28 (NLT), we find one of the most reassuring promises of God, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
While there are things in life we cannot control, we can release them to God and take hold of His promise. God is faithful, and we can trust Him to cause everything to work together for our good!
