God is in Control

God is always In Control- I will not doubt- “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths.” (Prov. 3:4-6). Conquer the wave of doubt, live by faith, trust in God for He is sovereign.
God’s promises are an assurance God gives his people so they can walk in faith while we wait for him to work. God’s promises never fail. While I waited for healing of my new hip God caused me to write a book on his faithfulness.
“Soul Fear” grows in the soil of doubt.  Doubt torches the soul. Numbers 23 tells us that his promises never fail, therefore, we should not doubt.

James tells us no matter the trial or temptation to consider it joy to develop our persevering maturity. And if we need wisdom to ask of God and he gives generously. Don’t doubt, it makes us double minded and anxious- blown like a wave in the wind. Take heart don’t fear. Peter walked on water to Jesus (Matt 14:28), but looked at the waves and took his eyes off Jesus and started to sink. He cried, “Save me Jesus” and He did, saying,“ You of little faith, why did you doubt.”

He is in control over rebellion. Jonah ran, yet His plans were implemented.
He has control over sin. Joseph’s brothers tried to kill him, and meant it for evil, but God meant it for good (Genesis 50).
God is sovereign over World events.  Esther trusted God and he engineered the circumstances. She was there for “such a time as this” to save the chosen Israelite people.

Trust in the Lord, not your own abilities.  I know how to fix issues like family members not having faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior- Really? God is bringing Godly people around them.
His promises can be conditional, meaning we must trust him.
Eph 3:20 says He is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond what we could ask or imagine.
He can listen to all our prayers at the same time, because he is sovereign.
We can be confident of this. Hebrews 6:18 says, “So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.   We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul.  WOW
Ps 37: 1-7 gives us more encouragement saying, fret not, trust in the Lord- wait on the Lord, delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in him and he will act.   Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.
God is always in control of all our circumstances- working all things together for good for those who trust him.

 “The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his sovereignty rules over all. “(Ps 103:19).  This is why believers can be sure that we will overcome every obstacle and problem; because God can handle whatever happens and is responsible for leading us to victory.
