God is still in control

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

Imagine what it must have felt like for Paul and Silas.  Imagine what they felt like during the process.  Imagine what they felt like being dragged before the court.  Imagine what they felt like being beaten.  Imagine what they felt like being thrown in jail.  Imagine what they felt like being in stocks. (Acts 16:16-18)
At any stage during the process they must have wondered what was going on.  Was God still in control?
Dr James Dobson speaks of the betrayal barrier. This is a place (that everyone faces) when we begin to think that even God has abandoned us. It is a critical time in each person’s life.
The truth was that God was completely in control and He knew the end from the beginning.
