Because God is in Control

Commit your way to the LORD;

trust in Him, and He will act.

Revelations 21: 3
 

Because God is in control, we must focus on His work in our lives.

  • He saves us 

Let us greatly rejoice in the LORD;
for He has clothed us with the
garments of salvation;
He has covered us with the
robe of righteousness.
Isaiah 61:10
 
  • He is not limited 

“So, I was late to the party, but I’m here now. I don’t know as much as many Christians, but I’m working on it. I look in the mirror and find much inadequacy, but thankfully God has no limitations, and He works with us in whatever condition we arrive at the cross. As 1 Timothy 1:15 assures, ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners . . . ‘ “

  • Rest in the LORD – and wait patiently for Him;

Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret, it leads only to evildoing.
Psalm 37: 7 & 8
 
  • God has it covered 

“We take the weight of the world off our shoulders, and we give it to Him. It’s His to bear. It’s His problem. We have no reason to fret over the wicked man because God has it covered. The only reason we fret is because we are afraid that God doesn’t have it covered.”
Go Back to the Gospel, morning sermon 7-17-22, Rev. Tim Rackley
 
  • Trust in Him 

Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness.
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37: 3 & 4
