Who is In Control

Matt and I are reading together on an evening a book called ‘Food for the Journey’. It’s a Keswick resource published by IVP with contributions from Alistair Begg, Alec Motyer, John Stott, Christopher Wright and others. There is a bible reading, a commentary by an experienced bible teacher/scholar and a reflection/application for each day.

When we read this reflection on Habakkuk 3:3-15, I couldn’t help but think of how we are coping with the lack of control that the Coronavirus has thrust us all into.

“It only takes the result of a blood test, a freak accident or unexpected news for our world to turn upside down. We realize that we have very little control over the circumstances of our lives. Thank God that when we are powerless, he is all-powerful. When our lives seem to spin out of control, he remains sovereign. The truth is that when we trust in what Christ achieved for us on the cross, we are eternally secure. So, whatever happens in life, we can be confident of Gods eternal control, and that is the basis for our perseverance, joy and hope. Today, praise God that he has set your feet on a rock and given you a firm place to stand.”

Psalm 40:2 “He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.” (NLT)
