God is in Control

God is in Control

 

Here is a wonderful and assuring quote that I came across when researching for a totally different subject, and it stood out to me, so right here we will focus on the thoughts it brings and share it with you.  Quote; “We can see only a little way before us; “but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” He [God] never becomes confused. He sits above the confusion and distractions of the earth, and all things are opened to His divine survey; and from His great and calm eternity He can order that which His providence sees is best.”  {ML 10} 

We have this in 2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”  As the Gospel song goes “God is Watching me” or the children’s song;  “For the Father up above is looking down in love, so be careful little feet where you go.”

Here is a different way to look at things Proverbs 8:34 “Blessed [is] the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.”  Here King Solomon is advising smart people to get very close to him as there is wisdom and guidance flowing forth from his throne, and your life will be so much better if you heed and obey.  On the Spiritual Plane, Jesus Christ is the Ultimate King upon his Throne, and the wisdom from his throne exceeds all and any throne ever, and as Peter said in 2 Peter 1:18-19 “And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount(Mount of Transfiguration).  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:” 

Peter is encouraging us to use our “Spiritual Eyes” and to watch and to observe, and then to walk in the ways of righteousness, and as Isaiah put it in Isaiah 30:21    “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This [is] the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”  Here Isaiah is crying out to us all that God is watching and is seeing disasters or better paths to walk in and like a “Navman” is constantly calling out when to turn and which way to take, and no matter how far you stray, God can always get you back on track once more, but you must let him direct your paths.

Back to our Quote; “We can see only a little way before us; “but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” He never becomes confused. He sits above the confusion and distractions of the earth, and all things are opened to His divine survey; and from His great and calm eternity He can order that which His providence sees is best.”

Oh why do we so often try to take control of our lives, and then upon crashing into disasters, try and throw it all back into God’s Face as if it was his fault, when he has been crying out warning after warnings and instructions all along the pathway as he has our very best interest at heart, but we so often get deaf ears and hard hearted and stubbornly refuse his guiding hand, when “He [God] sits above the confusion and distractions of the earth, and all things are opened to His divine survey.”

 

 

Back to our Quote; “He (God) sits above the confusion and distractions of the earth, and all things are opened to His divine survey; and from His great and calm eternity He can order that which His providence sees is best.”  So will you trust him and let the one who can clearly see, to direct your paths?  Come on, “Launch out into the deep and cast your net” there are great bounties and amazing blessings right there to be garnered in, all we have to do is to launch out.

We have this verse in Hebrews 13:5 “[Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”  We should not have to remind ourselves that we are promised that “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” but we invariably let the cares of this life squeeze God out of our lives and then we try vainly to make a success, and from this we often reap massive disasters.

Back to a variation of our Quote; “Above the distractions of the earth He sits enthroned; all things are open to His divine survey; and from His great and calm eternity He orders that which His providence sees best.” {CCh 77.1}  We need to remember that God is watching us for no other purpose than our betterment, and he is madly “In Love” with each one of us and only wants the very best for us and to guide us into the very best and smoothest paths, and from the Poem “Footsteps” when the going gets tough, God invariably picks us up, holds us close to his chest and carries us through, remember that he has promised to never leave us nor to forsake us.

Dear Reader; “Above the distractions of the earth He sits enthroned; all things are open to His divine survey; and from His great and calm eternity He orders that which His providence sees best.” {CCh 77.1}  Just trust him, and let him direct thy paths into abundant and amazing blessings.
