You’re Not God by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/18/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I once was really disappointed in someone I work with. I found myself battling resentment and replaying the situation over and over in my mind. Then I realized why this was bothering me so much. I wanted to be in control, and my co-worker’s behavior didn’t fit my plan.

I called a wise friend and asked her to pray for me. As we were about to hang up, she added this: “Nancy, I don’t know how to say this, but remember . . . you’re not God.” Ouch.

As women, we have such a drive to be in control, to manipulate circumstances so we feel comfortable. But the true path to peace comes when we trust God to be in control. When we hand Him the reins, we’re admitting that He truly has all the power.

Are you trying to control people or situations? Do you get upset when things don’t go your way? Remember—you’re not God.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
