Bible Verses About God Is In Control (KJV)

Colossians 1:17

As human beings, we often feel like we are in control of our lives. We make decisions and choices that we think will lead us to happiness and success. But the truth is, we are not in control. No matter how much we plan and prepare, there are always things that happen that are beyond our control. And that’s okay!

God is in control. He knows what’s best for us, even when we don’t. So when things happen that are out of our control, we can trust that God has a plan. And it will all work out for His glory and our good.

God is in control. This simple statement can bring comfort amid difficult times, or it can be a source of great comfort when things are going well. It is a reminder that no matter what happens in this world, God is still in charge. When we face trials and tribulations, it can be easy to feel like we are alone and that nobody understands what we are going through. However, knowing that God is in control can help us to realize that He does understand and that He will never leave us alone. We can rest assured that He will work everything out for our good.

Amid difficulties, we may not always see how God is working, but we can trust that He is. We can trust that He knows what He is doing and that He has a plan for our lives. Sometimes His plan may not be clear to us, but we can trust that He knows what He is doing. No matter what happens in this world, we can always know that God is in control. This knowledge can bring us great comfort and peace.

Now, this doesn’t mean that we should just sit back and do nothing. We should still be proactive and do everything we can to live our best lives. But we also need to remember that ultimately, God is in control. And that’s a good thing!

So when life gets tough, or when things are going well, remember that God is in control. He will never leave you alone and He will always work everything out for your good. Trust in Him and lean on Him for strength. He will help you through whatever you may be facing.

Do you ever feel like you’re not in control of your life? What helps you remember that God is in control?
