Who is in Control?

Who is in control of YOUR life?

Daily things happen. Laundry. Dishes. Phone calls. Running Errands. Jobs. Kid's homework. Sick kids. Bills in the mail. Spouse is late coming home. You forgot to buy something at the store that you needed YESTERDAY. Not as much income coming in. The list goes on and on...

You have piled things too high on that plate of yours and now, it's all coming down around you. Stress sneaks in and we allow fear to take over.

As one thing after another thing happens, as we continue to get hit from all directions, what do we do? Keep putting out fires? Hunker down and wait for it all to blow over?

Psa 57:1 To the Chief Musician. Do not destroy. A secret treasure of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me; for my soul trusts in You; yea, in the shadow of Your wings I will make my hiding-place, until these great troubles pass by. 2 I will cry to God most high, to God who does all things for me. 3 He shall send from Heaven, and save me from the scorn of him who would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth. 4 My soul is among lions; I lie among those on fire, the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword. 5 Be praised above the heavens, O God; let Your glory be above all the earth. 6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they have dug a pit before me, they have fallen into it. Selah. 7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise. 8 Wake up, my soul! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn. 9 I will praise You, O Jehovah, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations. 10 For Your mercy is great to the heavens, and Your truth to the clouds. 11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let Your glory be above all the earth.

Lets remember, as days pass and stresses come in and out of our lives, who is in control. We choose- Who will you have in control of YOUR life? Will you choose to take the leade? Or will you choose to hide under the wings of the One who is ALWAYS in control. If you are choosing God today to be in control, Praise Him. Not just behind the doors in your home, not just in your church. Praise Him in front of EVERYONE! Praise Him to all nations! May the Lord's glory be shown in our lives!

In those times of trouble call on His name, but do not forget to be praising Him ALWAYS.
