If you feel like your life is out of control and that everything seems to be going wrong, you’ll often find yourself thinking about the Bible.

In this blog post, I want to share some of my favorite quotes from the Bible about God being in control of all things.

What does it mean God Is In Control?

In the Bible, it says that God Is In Control. But does this mean He is a sort of puppeteer controlling everything we do? Are we like robots?

Not exactly. What it means is that God knows what’s going on, and He has a plan to make everything work out for our good!

God allows us the freedom to make our own decisions. We have the power to choose whether or not we listen to Him and believe in Him.

Even though He has created laws that govern how things work in His universe, there are many ways you can avoid following them.

For example, consider gravity: Gravity works no matter if you choose to follow it or not! You can jump off of a cliff and be crushed by the ground, but that’s the result of your choice.

God doesn’t force us to make good choices or bad choices. Instead, he lets the consequences of our actions play out as a natural part of His universe.

God Is In Control, but not Controlling us.

God gives us freedom of thought and does not force us to think in a certain way. He does not force us to think good thoughts about Him.

God is in control but not controlling our actions.

We have free will and can choose whatever actions we want to take. God allows us to make our own decisions and accept the consequences as a result.

We all make bad choices in life sometimes, but God sees these choices as opportunities for growth.

God is in control of all things, including us.

If you have a happy life and everything is going well, that’s wonderful! You should be grateful for all of the good things that have happened.

On the other hand, if you are struggling and everything seems to be going wrong, don’t give up! Instead, keep working hard and doing your best. Then, you’ll never lose sight of Him no matter how hard times get!

He has not forgotten about you. On the contrary, he loves you very much and has a plan to help you overcome these struggles!

Even if you feel like your life is out of control, know that He sees everything and cares about what happens. So don’t give up hope!

God bless you!

Isaiah 55:8

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.

God knows what is best for you and has a plan to make your life better, but He still allows us the freedom to make our own decisions. His thinking is different from ours, which is why we must trust him and believe in Him.

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.

Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?

Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

through the fear of the Lord evil is avoided.

he causes their enemies to make peace with them.

Better a little with righteousness
than much gain with injustice.

In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.

I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.
