When the bible instructs you to trust in the Lord with all your heart, what does this really mean for a believer of Jesus Christ? Here is what it means. God lives in heaven and He seats on the throne from where He reigns. There are things that happen to us that He may allow, yet even when those things are meant for our harm by others, God turns them into stepping stones for our own good. When Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den, He trusted God to be in control. This was a moment of putting all His trust that God would take deliver Him.
Imagine that you are at times afraid of vicious dogs when they come after you. I believe is we were all placed in the midst of lions it would be a moment of truth. A moment that would test our faith to the highest. Yet Daniel put all His trust in God taking control of that particular situation. Daniel 6:16
Don’t you ever think for one day that God will leave you alone? Don’t believe this lie. God never leaves you helpless. Even when it seems like your offenders are making progress and advancing at your demise because they took advantage of you. Just remember that all things work out for your good.
Daniel was thrown into the den of lions but no hurt came upon him. They cornered him, and when you have no clue what to do and they think they have cornered you. God will make sure you come out victorious. Just say these words, “God is in control”. Victory is the identity of the one who believes in God. Even when the situation or people seem to corner you God has to be glorified all the time.
Always thank God that He is in control when you receive unfavorable news. The fate of all human lives is in God’s hands. Exodus 14:13 “And Moses said unto the people fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord; which He will show to you today: For the Egyptians whom you have seen today. You shall see them no more again forever.”
Egyptians are not people only. They are also forces that can fight you through situations that can be turned against you. However, opposing the forces wedged against you may be, when you say “God is in control”, they will not prevail. This is how reliable God is. More reliable than any human promise one can ever make to you.
Exodus 14:14 “The Lord shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace.”God will fight for you because He is in control. All you have to do is to put your faith in His ability to do what He says He would do.
1 John 5:4 AMP ” For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world. This is the victory that has conquered and overcomes the world and overcomes the world–[our, continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God].”
When the word of God says “whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world”, it means everything that comes from one who believes in Him, has overcome. it has nothing to do with what will be happening in your area or sphere of contact because when you start anything, it is automatically born of God and through it, you have overcome the world. When you do this God automatically has permission to influence your life in the right direction. Let God guide you today and forever.
