"Let God be in control of your life"

Many Christians are stuck on a plane of existence. They try to obey the Lord,
but the old "flesh" keeps emerging. Life is a roller coaster of spiritual ups
and downs so therefore their moods go up and down. Sometimes this condition is
due to ignorance.

People need to realize that:
1) this lifestyle is NOT meant to be the norm for believers and
2) the Lord has given us everything we need to live a Godly life (2 Peter
1:3-4).

Some people are what is known as "bipolar". But the Christian doesn't need to
have moods that go up and down if they stand on the Word of God, truly follow
after Him, and keep up a Godly life. It's a disorder that God can take away if
you only believe.

The primary reason believers live fleshly lives however, is because they have
not yet made up their minds who will be in control. Instead of letting God
being in control, they try to take control. There is something they are
unwilling to surrender to God. It could be a desire, a habit or addiction or
source of security or pleasure. Another possibility is that they have sensed His
call on their lives but are running from Him in fear or rebellion. Many run
from the call and it makes them unhappy. Jonah ran from the call and he ended up
in the belly of the whale (a big fish the Bible says).

The consequences of living this way are devastating. Without the Spirit's
governing control, the carnal Christian (the one not walking in the Spirit) is
spiritually immature and ruled by his own desires, rights, and expectations.
Because he has not applied previously learned biblical truths (milk of the
Word), he cannot understand the deeper things of Scripture (meat of the Word).
The result: "stunted spiritual growth." There is no growth.

1 Chron. 29:11 "Thine, O LORD is the greatness, and the power, and the glory,
and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth
is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."
verse 12Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in
thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to
give strength unto all.

Hebrews 11:3 tells us He holds the universe together.

Not only is God in control of the world; He is also in control of history. We
are moving toward a climax. We are moving forward to a grand climax. One day
Jesus Christ is going to come back. One day there will be a judgment day.
History is His-story. We're not going through just random acts of events that
happen in life. There is a grand design. There is a purpose. There is a plan.
And God is in control of history.

If you find yourself in this position described here, take courage. You do not
have to remain in this condition. What are you holding onto? Letting go can be
very difficult, but the power of almighty God resides within you through His
Spirit. Relax your grip, surrender to Him, and rely on His strength. Let God be
in control of your life. When God is at the center of your life, you cannot
fail.
If you want to suceed, let God be in control.
Theresa Q. Pavone,A.TH, B.TH
