Did you know that control is an illusion? It kind of looks like pulling on this rope. It feels like I’m doing something – that l’m participating and have a say in what’s going on around me. But in all actuality, all I’m doing is pulling and becoming tired and holding onto the illusion of control. But- as soon as I stop pulling, that allows the lord to move. I’m trusting Him to work and move in my life. I’m giving Him control and relying on Him, not the rope. We must stop pulling and start praying, trusting in the Lord, and believing He is in control.
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
