God Is In Control

Frequently life seems to be a series of peaks and valleys–ups and downs—that can cause people to question if they are headed in a good and meaningful direction. However, with God, believers can trust that life is linear; that is, it’s always heading according to the Lord’s sovereign plan, just as He has determined and willed it to be:

The road of life may seem to be aimless while consistently challenging us with trials.

However, God is carrying out his plan that will ultimately culminate with heavenly reward and eternal life for His children.

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end; and so we are assured that just as in the beginning when His plan began to unfold, the end will be as He determines. Meanwhile, in between the start and finish of history, we continue to work out our salvation (Philippians 2:12) and grow in the sanctification process, whereby we become more and more like Jesus.

Isaiah 40:4 expresses a time when “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain shall be made low” so that, as King David put it, “[our feet] stand in a even place” (Psalm 26:12). We are assured that the valleys and turmoils of life will be no more, and God will “wipe away every tear from [our] eyes” (Revelation 7:17)!
