Who's in Charge?

. . . just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do. 1 Peter 1:15

Has your mother ever said to you, "You're in charge?" When you're put in charge of something, you are like a king reigning over it. You have control and are responsible for seeing that the assignment is carried out.

Have you ever wondered who's in charge of the world? The Bible tells us that God is sovereign. That means He is in charge or in control of all things. He is the highest ruler. No one is over God. God reigns over everything and everybody all the time. Nothing can happen unless God allows it to happen. He is in control of everything day and night-24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year. He never sleeps or goes away on vacation.

How long will God reign? The Bible says, "The Lord will reign for ever and ever" (Exodus 15:18). God was always in control and He always will be in control. What does that mean for you? No matter what happens in your life, you don't have to be afraid or upset because God is in control. He loves you, and He wants you to trust Him completely. God is the greatest. He is sovereign. He is the King of kings.
