He Is In Control

“God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?”

Numbers 23:19

When this all began and things quickly started to change, I became so anxious and fearful. It seemed like every night our world was flipped upside down, and our new normal was pretty frightening.

But these last few weeks there is one prominent thought that keeps running through my mind. God is in absolute control. I posted the following on my personal social media a few weeks ago, and I still believe it for today.

Thought I had this morning.. while we are in a state of emergency (sounds terrifyingly ominous) God is not. He isn’t panicking. He isn’t trying to gather as many of His resources as possible to help us out. He isn’t consulting others to develop a plan of action.

He is still in absolute control. When I think of heaven right now I don’t see chaos, I imagine a stillness. A quiet. A holy hush. Peace.

What will our reaction be? I’ll be completely honest, I’ve been anxious this last week. I have two young girls I’m trying to protect and my Mama worry is through the roof. But when I sit and silence the voices of the world, I feel calm. I feel a stillness. A quiet. A holy hush.

Peace.

If you need anything during this season of uncertainty, please reach out! You are not alone. God loves you and wants only the very best for you.

Invite His peace and calm into your home and heart today. He wants to commune with you and give you the rest you’ve been longing for.

God, help me to see You in the chaos. Steady my heart. Fill my home with Your peace and presence.
