Word of the Day: Control

Nov 21, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

CONTROL – to exercise restraint or direction over; to hold in check

The “what ifs” in our minds can be endless. Is God really in control? Or did he just create all things, set them in motion, but out of his control? The Bible teaches that God’s sovereignty is an essential aspect of who he is, that he has supreme authority and absolute power over all things. And yes he is very much active, despite our perplexity. Scripture says, God works “all things according to the counsel of his will” (Ephesians 1:11).

Scripture: Colossians 1:17

“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”


“Nothing is a surprise to God; nothing is a setback to His plans; nothing can thwart His purposes; and nothing is beyond His control.” 

— Joni Eareckson Tada
