Today’s subject is GOD IS IN CONTROL by Nancy DeMoss in The Quiet Place. Proverbs 21:1 says “The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORDS. He turns it wherever he will. ” When we submit to God-ordained authority, we are placing ourselves under the spiritual protection and covering of God Himself. The fundamental issue in relation to submission really comes down to our willingness to trust God and to place ourselves under His authority. Do we really believe God is bigger than any human authority? Placing ourselves under God-ordained authority is a the greatest evidence of how big we believe God really is.
I love watching God work. He takes others that want their own way or control and bends them to his will. But he does it gently. I am seeking permission from Chuck to do something I feel we should do, I go to God and have a conversation with God. If God really wants it to happen, he will convince him and then it will happen. I trust God. I know he only has my best interest at heart and I love to be part of his work.
