He is the great I am. The beginning and the end. Our future and our past. The author and finisher of our faith. Why do we try and take control of our lives? Why do we as human beings things that we can manage on our own. Because we are afraid that if it doesn’t go our way, nothing will go right. WRONG! God will direct your steps and will lead you on the path that He has carved out for you. Sometimes the path isn’t the greatest thing you ever experience, but the Lord disciplines those He love. So don’t go and curse God when things go wrong. We ought to follow the example of Paul, by rejoicing in the times of trials. Let us become still and know that He is God. Letting everything in His hands and knowing that He let all things work for the good of those who love Him and have been called according to His purpose.
