Life can at times be like a roller coaster.
There are ups, downs, curves, and all sorts of twists and turns on which you no control whatsoever. However, the roller coaster is still headed to its designed end.
We like having a sense of control in our own lives.
But, control is really an illusion.
All it takes is one bad doctor report, a rebellious child, a car wreck, a pandemic, a misfiled report, or a downturn in the job market to reveal how little control we have over our lives.
Where our control ends is where we find the joy of the faithfulness of God.
While life may seem like a roller coaster at times, God is bringing us to His desired end.
His faithfulness will see us through.
What we need is a strong conviction in the faithfulness of God, who is the One who is really in control.
When you learn to give up your illusion of control and start to truly trust God, you will realize that you can enjoy the ride much more than you ever may have thought. I do not mean that all your troubles simply fade away.
But, I do mean that when you have a strong confidence in God bringing the ride of your life to His desired end, you can relax and enjoy the ride more.
▪︎ Are you holding on to the safety bar of life with clinched fists, terrorized by your own lack of control?
▪︎ Or will you let go and embrace the truth that God is using all the ups and downs to bring you to His desired end?
