"He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps." Psalm 40:2
How do you respond to the times your circumstances seem out of control? Many find themselves caught up in a fast and furious pace without thinking about what they are doing.
Each of us faces moments when life requires a change of plans. Sudden and unplanned interruptions or crises have the potential to send us reeling toward disaster. However, as a someone who believes in God, you do not have to submit to mind-boggling actions.
Jesus kept a rigorous schedule that was often accented by what seemed to be emergencies or unscheduled delays. Yet never once was He taken off guard nor did He become fractious over the needs and desires others placed on Him. He never rushed or hurried anywhere. He was never surprised by His circumstances. He had a mission and purpose, and He never became frantic over whether it would become a reality.
You can gain your greatest sense of control by knowing that God’s will continue to guide your life. There is never a time, a trial, or a temptation when He doesn’t have a plan for you. He is able to grant victory over the most unreasonable situation. Allow Him to be your strength in whatever you are facing.
