My Assurance: God Is In Control
Jeremiah 32


During one of the most trying seasons of my life, I would sit by the fire with a dear friend and pour out my heart. Since this man was a good listener, he could sense when I felt discouraged, and he would remind me that God is in control. This truth became an anchor in my life; no matter how much the adversity intensified,I found solace in knowing that my heavenly Father is sovereign.


The Lord has supreme and absolute rule, control, and authority over the universe and everything in it. The Scriptures state that there is "one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all" (Ephesians 4:6).


Consider the assurances that this truth provides for believers. First, if God created everything and has complete power over all, then nothing can happen apart from His direction and permission. Second, we know from the Bible that He is intimately involved in our personal lives and cares about the details of each day. Third, Romans 8:28 guarantees that He makes something beautiful for His children in every circumstance - even in situations that seem painful and wrong. If our loving Father protects us in this way, we can experience peace in the present and confidence about the future.


In painful times, how do you view God? Especially during hardships and heartbreak, it's important to remember that He is in control. Focusing on His sovereignty will give you the confidence to carry on. Reread today’s passage, focusing on the power, love, and ability of your heavenly Father.

Current Series:


No matter what the situation was, Jesus knew just how to touch people - sometimes with His hand but always with His heart. Consider how lives were affected by coming in contact with Him. For instance, in today's reading, Jesus called the children to Himself, placed His hand upon those little ones, and blessed them.


Last Week:


     The tortured soul can be caused by the things we have done in the past as well as believing the lies that the Devil tells us. We can only get out of it by telling our soul that it is better to confess than hide out sin and that Christ will set us free.
