Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
With this one realization comes amazing liberation – we are not in control. When we lay hold of this fact and relinquish our rights to the One Who is, we open ourselves to miraculous possibilities.
Many of us believe that we are in control, convinced that everything rises and falls on our endeavors and efforts. We plot and plan, maneuver and manipulate. Scripture tells us that we might make many plans, but only God’s purposes will stand (Proverbs 19:21). He will have His way.
All the time and in every situation, God alone has complete control. When we finally lay down our illusions, it frees us from the overwhelming burden of attempting to control every outcome and believing that everything is our fault.
That liberation allows us the opportunity to get to know the One Who is in control. Like a beloved child, we learn to trust our Father Who rules over all. Because we belong to Him, we are favored.
In His house, everything He owns belongs to us. We recognize His voice, and He recognizes ours. He is our Rock and Refuge. We find provision and protection under His care and control.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Submit to Jesus as Lord of all to discover His plan for you. He will not withhold any good thing!
