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.
The Hard Truth: You have never been in control. Control is an illusion. There are no constants in life.
Principle to Remember:
Proverbs 21:31 – The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.”
Three Things God Told Joshua:
Jesus said the exact same thing to you!!
God gives him three things to do:
Trust that God is already where you are going.
Hard Truth: I can’t control the future or the outcome. I CAN control what I do next. THAT WILL determine the future AND the outcome.
Maybe if I focused moire on my next step, God will direct the rest of them.
