God is in Control

 God is, and will always, be in control.

Have you ever felt that things were going so badly that you didn't think it would ever get better? Or you just didn't know why things were happening the way they were? I have! I wanted to share some verses that I found that talked about this subject.

Romans 13:1b  For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Proverbs 16:4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.

Proverbs 19:21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, to the Lord your God belong heaven and the heaven of heavens, the earth with all that is in it

Psalm 135:6 Whatever the Lord pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth,  in the seas and all deeps.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.

Proverbs 16:9 The heart of man plans his way,  but the Lord establishes his steps.

Ephesians 1:11  having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will

Psalm 115:3 Our God is in the heavens; He does all that He pleases.

Genesis 50:20  As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. 
Above verse is from the story of Joseph. A great example, wouldn't you say? Joseph had no idea why he was being betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery, and he probably wondered what on earth was going on and why would God let such a thing happen. . . but in the end, it all showed that everything had been predestined by God and He had been in control the entire time!

I hope you enjoyed this post! 


  1. Thanks for sharing these verses, they were an encouragement for me! I enjoyed the post! :)

  2. Thanks for the great reminder! I've needed to be reminded of this so many times over the past couple years and God has definitely been teaching me to trust Him more and more! Thanks for taking the time to writ up this post!

  3. So true and something that we all probably need reminded about more than once. Thanks for sharing.

  4. You are welcome, Rebekah, Jesseca, and Rebekah! :) I'm so glad this post was an encouragement to you!!


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
