“You need to understand that there are many things you will not understand. As you mature, you will rest in the fact that I am your God. You will find peace where there seems to be no peace. Before you learned how to wait on Me, the season that you are going through now would have you striving and fearful. Because you can rest even when all things around you seem to be falling apart, I am free to move on your behalf. There is nothing that I need help with. You are powerless to do anything anyway. That is good. Now I will do what is necessary, so that My plan is accomplished. I have not left you. I am deeply involved in your life. Just trust Me.”

Psalm 3:1-6 AMP 

1) LORD, HOW they are increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me.

2) Many are saying of me, There is no help for him in God. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

3) But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

4) With my voice I cry to the Lord, and He hears and answers me out of His holy hill. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

5) I lay down and slept; I wakened again, for the Lord sustains me.

6) I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people who have set themselves against me round about.

Psalm 18:1-2 NIV 

1) I love you, O LORD, my strength.

2) The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield…

John 5:19-20a NIV 

19) Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

20a) For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does.”


Someone once said: “Christianity in its inception is about us, as we grow it becomes about others, in its maturity it is about God.”  Most of those who call themselves Christians have never left the first phase of their walk with the Lord. Everything centers around them and their welfare.

God is moving on His people so that we grow up. He wants us to fully understand that nothing matters except His will. When that truth is “owned” by us, even the direst circumstances can’t touch us for we know that our Lord is in them with us, accomplishing His will.

Today is a day that your Lord is in charge of your life, if you get your hands off of it. He will give you peace if you trust Him. He will orchestrate everything that needs to be touched if you let Him. He is your Lord. He takes that job very seriously!

Thank You for being in charge, Lord,

Jim Corbett
