Who is really in control? Is it me? The voices on the TV? Who has things figured out? Is it a professor? A well-trained scholar? Who will fix things? Is it a political leader? A much-loved ruler? When no humans can do it What no humans would attempt You step in God Be in control, figure things out, fix things • Emily Acker • Do you ever find yourself feeling scared because of things you read or see in the news? Do you wonder if there is anyone good out there, anyone trustworthy who is taking care of things? Today’s Scripture reminds us that God is the ultimate ruler over everything, and He helps us. • Jesus came to save the world. What did He do that no one else could have done? (See our “Know Jesus” page.) • As we live in a broken world, how might remembering that Jesus will return—and make all things fully right—give us hope? • What kind of brokenness are you experiencing today? How might God be working out His good purposes in these situations? How might He be inviting you to be part of what He’s doing? If you’d like to, you can take a moment to ask Him. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)
