The Pastor's Corner: Who's in Charge?

Posted by Carness Vaughan on

Have you ever thought you knew better than God? You would never word it that way, of course, but your life reflected that line of thinking? I will admit there have been seasons of my life where I’ve put God on retainer, essentially telling him, “I’ll call you when I need you.” I go through my life making decisions on my own, plans on my own, acting on my own, while never giving God a chance to even weigh in, much less direct my path and reveal his plan. Usually, those seasons of life end up with me in a proverbial ditch or lost in the wilderness, wondering how I got there and why God didn’t save me!

Sunday we’re continuing in our sermon series based on prayers of the Bible, and this one takes place during one of Paul’s journeys to spread the Gospel in what is now Greece. We’ll be leaning into this idea of listening to the Holy Spirit and letting God guide our lives. As we’ll see, amazing things can happen when we let God take the wheel. One of my favorite verses is Proverbs 3:5-6, and I really love how Eugene Peterson translates it in his modern-day paraphrase of the Bible called The Message:

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.

See you Sunday as we worship the God who is, thankfully, in charge!
