Who's in Control?


How does pride and fear affect our desire to be in control?

Control. We like to think that we are able to control our lives. If we aren't in control of things and people around us, we can tend to feel like failures. The first is a pride issue, while the second is a fear issue. God alone has the right to be in control. We were created to serve as stewards, caring for His creation. We are His people, called to develop self-control through His Spirit, so that, like Jesus, we serve.

The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.—Psalm 24:1-2

Prayer: Lord, I confess that there are times I struggle with being in control. I usurp Your rightful place, and try to orchestrate life to my liking. Forgive me. I need Your Spirit to produce godly self-control within me, and to find my place as Your servant. I pray in Jesus' name, amen.
