Heavenly Control

Mar 16

by Victoria Robinson

God is my copilot. Really girlfriends, do we really want God in the passenger seat? I know when my life is soaring through the skies, (Which aren’t always so friendly!) I want God in the pilot’s seat! So why is it I insist on being the one with the controls in my hands? Pure foolishness! My attitude reminds me of Satan when he said, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.” Hmmm … we can certainly see how well that turned out can’t we?

Jesus made it abundantly clear that EVERYTHING that happens to us has already been approved by our heavenly father. This can be both comforting and yet discomforting all at the same time. In our foolish sin nature we wish to have full control of what takes place in our lives not choosing to trust our creator’s wisdom. Job spoke wisely about the creator when he said, “Whatever he wants to do, he does. So he will do for me all he has planned. He controls my destiny.”

Dearest girlfriends, I pray we would turn over the controls of our lives to the only One who can land us safely.

Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. … ~ Luke 22:31-32 NIV
 
… I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. ~ Isaiah 41:13-14 NIV
 
Nevertheless, his mind concerning me remains unchanged, and who can turn him from his purposes? Whatever he wants to do, he does. So he will do for me all he has planned. He controls my destiny. ~ Job 23:1-14 NLT
