When the things of life get us down, we know we should pray, but it is easier to feel sorry for ourselves as if we have any control. We don’t have control because God is in control. It is why so many of us like organization. It gives us a sense of control. But when we leave everything to God and trust his directions; wonderful things happen. Leaving things to God letting go of the control.
Life will still bring us down, but with God in control, we can rest knowing things will be alright.
“Turn to me and be saved,
all you ends of the earth;
for I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn,
my mouth has uttered in all integrity
a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
by me every tongue will swear.
24 They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone
are deliverance and strength.’”
