Are You Under Control?
He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control. --- Philippians 3:21

We all seek to try and keep everything that pertains to our lives under control. Family and household matters - under control. Job responsibilities - under control. Social commitments - under control. Ourselves - under control. We fool ourselves to think we have it that way. But if we look deeper into what we think we have control over, we may discover that they actually have control over us! This happens when we do not first surrender ourselves under the control of God. Getting to know and understand God through the Holy Spirit within us affirms for us that we have divine protection, provision, and guidance when we are under the control of His authority. Outside of that - we are vulnerable and weak to the pull of people, places, activities, addictions, and all sorts of dangers that keep us twisting and turning as we try to keep them under control. But the opposite is true - they control us. So, the question remains...are you under control - God's control? Do yourself a favor and get there. You'll be both presently and eternally glad that you did!
