You're Not In Charge

A poet once said, "I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul."

Frank Sinatra made famous the words: "I did it my way."

The new age religion says there is no savior, that we must save ourselves, that we are God.

The fact is that the above three express folly of the highest order. God's Word says, "Oh, Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps." Jeremiah 10:23.

Satan's first lie to Eve has never lost its glitter. He has practiced and perfected his trade for this time in history. He is using the same deception and the same old line that he used with Eve, and it will seduce the great majority of people, who have not the discernment to understand. "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12. Satan will be at his best. This will be his finest hour. And Jesus said that it will be so cunning that if it were possible even the very elect would be deceived.

We are not in charge - as individuals, or as nations. God is in complete, total, sovereign charge. While He has chosen to give us free will, the choice to believe or reject Jesus Christ as the only gate to heaven, God Himself made that decision before we were ever here. For the moment He allows men and nations to act as they choose. At any moment, however, he can and does intervene, according to His purposes and divine plan. Nothing on earth is done without His knowledge and permission. He has the power.

Submit, and invite Him to be in charge of your life. It will be life as it was purposed specifically for you here on earth.

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord..." Psalm 37:23.

"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:6.
