When our world does not feel safe, God is our refuge. When it is hard to know what is true and what is not, God is Truth. When we do not know what to do or where we are headed, Jesus is the Way. When we feel our world is out of control, we need to remember God is still in control.
God is in Control
God is in control; His way we cannot see,
But we do know Jesus has died to set us free.
The world writhes in hurt; nations are sick with desire,
To be relieved of the heavy burdens acquired.
Our heart’s cry at the dilemma on every side,
And our spirit seeks truth that seems to hide.
Our God is Truth, He is Life and The Way,
To a future of joy, peace and forever praise.
When our attention is drawn back to the pandemic at hand,
And as the numbers of its victims we again understand,
We like flint must follow after our Savior and friend;
Choosing to listen to the Spirit again.
God is in control even when the earth shakes.
Knowing He is in control all the difference makes.
He is our God; healer, refuge from the storm, and calms raging sea;
That in the circumstances of the day begins to rise in you and me.
Choose to trust God in whatever lies ahead,
Because of His love for us and because of what the Word has said.
Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him:
I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him:
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honour him.
