I DO Have Control in Life!

I had the privilege of growing up in a loving family. I was taught to love God and to live according to Biblical principles. Because I was faithful to apply the Biblical principles I was taught, I enjoyed success in school, in sports, and in pursuing a college education toward my career goals. On the outside, I appeared to have everything well in order. On the inside, however, it was a different story.

On the inside, I had a deep fear that seemed to be almost paralyzing at times. My fear was that after doing my best to follow all of the rules—working hard, living a wholesome life, being kind to others, all of the things I had learned from my parents and the church I attended growing up—that even still, everything I had worked to attain could be suddenly taken from me by a catastrophic event. What drove this fear in my thinking was the realization that I had no control in avoiding such a negative event. It seemed to be lurking somewhere in my future with no way for me to escape it. At times these fearful thoughts made life seem futile, causing me to feel discouraged and helpless.

I never told anyone about this fear; how much it bothered me and weighed me down; but God knew. He knew that I longed to have that weight lifted from my mind so I could move forward with a confident and enthusiastic outlook on life. And by God’s wonderful grace, that is just what happened after I began learning the Word of God taught in The Way Ministry.

I learned about the law of believing; that when I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart what God’s Word says, God will absolutely bring it to pass. What deliverance it brought to my heart to know that I DO have control in life! I can claim God’s promises of protection, guidance, prosperity, and health in my life. Just knowing that it is God’s desire above all things for me to prosper and be in health (III John 2) brought peace of mind that I had never experienced before.

God looked on my heart and saw a need in my life. Through the Word that I learned and believed, God brought me deliverance from my deepest fear enabling me to live with confidence and peace in my heart. Today, I look forward to the future because I know that whatever life brings my way, God will be with me and together we will prevail!
