Today you should read: Jeremiah 27
Sometimes we forgot how in control God is at all times. We look at the pandemic, murders, war, famine, and natural disasters and perceive the world as being in total chaos. Which to us would be totally out of control. There is nothing you or I can do to stop a tornado if it was heading straight for our houses. The world is trying to come up with a solution for COVID 19 and we don’t have any so we perceive it as completely out of control.
The problem with that outlook is that sometimes I think we put God in the same position as us. We don’t trust that he is in control, but verse 5 tells us something about God when it says, “It is I who by my great power and my outstretched arm have made the earth, with the men and animals that are on the earth, and I give it to whomever it seems right to me.”
To the Israelites, things probably seemed out of control. This nation has come in and taken over. The people want to take matters into their own hands and rebel against him, but God says these words to his people. He says this not to stop the conflict, but instead to remind the people that he is still in control. That’s something that we should continue to remember today. That God is in control!
