If you ever doubt whether God is in control, look around!
Is there anything floating around the room? Are you 6 inches off the ground? No? Well, then gravity is working at the moment. And gravity is a pretty cool example of a law that operates no matter what. It applies to all – you don’t have to earn it or do anything to make it work on you – you just have to be here.
Think of it this way, the law of gravity is like the Law of God. God is always in control whether we want Him to be or not, whether we “deserve” it or not, whether we’ve prayed today or not, whether we’re good or bad, happy or sad. God just is. And the Law of God is always in operation. We’re always governed by Divine Law – by Truth, Life, and Love – no matter what.
So, when in doubt – when you’re wondering if God’s in control – when circumstances temp you to think He’s not – look around – notice that gravity is still working (things aren’t floating around are they?) and that will remind you that God’s Law (more powerful than gravity) – is still in operation. It’s always working and always present to uphold you.
