Here’s a shortcut life lesson: the quicker you accept that God is in complete control of life and the universe, and that you are not, the happier you’ll be.
Trying to hold the reins of your life, instead of handing them to God, is exhausting and futile. I love what John Piper says, that ‘God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.’
Relaxing in the sure safe knowledge that God has your back and sees around every corner frees you up to enjoy his daily goodness to you. And your trust and surrender is a beautiful Jesus-magnet to people caught up in the stress and uncertainty of life.
