We can enjoy life when we give God control

Daily Thought

Your Word for 14 June 2024

Exodus 34:5
‘The LORD descended in a cloud and stood with him (Moses) there.’

It may feel to you like God has given up on the world. But He has no intention of doing so.

Proverbs 21:1 ‘The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, Like the waters; He turns it wherever He wishes.’

Even those who are in authority, He is in control of. God can turn any situation around.  Nationally, worldwide, or in your office or in your home.  Nothing is out of control to God.  Things may get a little wild, but they are not beyond God’s reach. It is only as we allow God to control our lives that we can really live. If we do not allow God to control our lives, things can and will get out of control.

Romans 8:6 ‘… The mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace….’

If we want to enjoy life to the full and peace, here is the Key. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to control our minds. Our minds are very powerful.  I have met people whose minds are out of control.  This is one of the most debilitating things to live with.  It can just about ruin one’s life.  God knew that we could not be left to our own devices.  He knew that we would need to allow ourselves to be control by Him.  In this way we could enjoy life and peace at a different level.
