Christ Is In Control!

Getting Right to the Point!
Sometimes we’re tempted to wonder just who is running this world! It does seem at times, indeed much of the time, that no one is in charge, or if so, not doing a very good job.
But that’s not at all true. The fact is, Jesus Christ is in absolute and complete control of everything that happens in the entire universe all the time. St. Paul reminds us, “He [God] put all things in subjection under His [Jesus’] feet.” (Ephesians 1:22)
So, why does the world so often look out of anyone’s control? Simply put, it looks that way because we can’t see the whole picture. We don’t know all things. We are limited by time and space. Jesus knows all and sees all. Past, present, and future are all “now” to Him. Thus, He is working out all things for the eternal good of believers, regardless of whether or not we realize it. So, fear not; be at peace. Christ is indeed in control. And that's the point!
