The other day I had a dilemma. My heart was in a quandary, showing desires in two different directions. Although both of these desires were good, I was in a state of perplexity. The perplexity was very painful. Then I wondered, “Would God bring this dilemma in my heart under His Control if I yielded it to Him?” He did! A few days later, I sensed that my desires had sorted themselves out. I was not in a quandary anymore. I knew what to do. God had brought the dilemma under His Control.
I often ask God to bring a problem under His Control…and then I am so surprised when He does.
WHO, BY THE POWER THAT ENABLES HIM TO BRING EVERYTHING UNDER HIS CONTROL, WILL TRANSFORM OUR LOWLY BODIES SO THAT THEY WILL BE LIKE HIS GLORIOUS BODY
Take heart, Child! I, Jesus Christ, possess the Power that enables Me to bring everything under My Control, even your beliefs of abandonment, your problem with shame, your struggle with condemnation, and your battle with rejection.
Be glad, Precious One! I, the Bread of Life, am capable of bringing your out-of-control tongue under My Control. Be encouraged! I, your Savior, am capable of bringing your out-of-hand weakness under My Control. Rejoice! I, your Redeemer, am capable of bringing your uncontrollable, negative thoughts under My Control.
Sing with joy, Beloved! I, the Light of the World, am capable of bringing your past, your present, and your future under My Control. Jubilate! I, God’s Son, am able to exercise restraining influence over that which is ungovernable in your life, even your victim spirit. Celebrate! I, the King of Kings, am able to rule over that which you place under My Control, even your pride, your anger, your jealousy, your fear, your animosity, and your depression.
THE LORD ON HIGH IS MIGHTIER THAN THE NOISE OF MANY WATERS, YEA, THAN THE MIGHTY WAVES OF THE SEA
I bless you as you submit your uncontrollable problem to Jesus.
What uncontrollable problem do you have in your life that you would like to submit to the Power of the Lord Jesus Christ? Do you know how to do this? Simply lay your out-of-hand problem at the feet of Jesus and ask Him to fix it and bring it under His Control. Then, leave it there and walk away.
PRAYER: O Lord Jesus, You know my frame and You remember that I am human. I submit my uncontrollable problem to You, for You are mighty in strength. I cannot solve my problem, Lord Jesus. Only You can. Therefore, I lay this dilemma at Your feet and ask You to bring it under Your Control, for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Your Ways higher than my ways. None can compare with You.
