Have you ever felt that, no matter what you did, your life seemed to spiral further and further our of control? There are times in life where no matter how well we plan, how good of decisions we make, or how much right we try to do, life just seems to do wrong. For some of us, the thought of losing control consumes us with fear and anxiety and as a result, we shape how we think and how we act around trying to preserve ourselves in case something bad does happen. But at the end of the day, what is it that we really are in control of? In this week’s message, we learn that while we can’t know what’s going to happen in every circumstance, God has given us a responsibility in those scary circumstances and by obeying what He asks, it can help us refocus and turn our fear into faith.



Control is an illusion. There are areas of your life that are completely out of your control. Where are you more driven by your need for control than your trust in God? What are you holding too tightly to right now?

Proverbs 21:31
Joshua 1:1-9
The first thing he says: I am promising you victory. Just stick to the game plan.
God walks ahead of you.
God walks ahead of you.
Wherever God is calling you, he is already there. He’s just waiting you to meet him there.
Joshua 1:16-18
Joshua 2:1-6
It’s not about what you can’t control with your future. It’s about what you can control with your present.
We often fear when our lives are out of control and that’s because we are missing what God is doing right in front of us. All we’re focusing on is the things we don’t know.
Joshua 2:23-24
Luke 14:28-33
