God is in Control (Classic Sermon Series)


The book of Habakkuk begins with a cry yet ends with a song. And in the middle are three eternal messages given by the Lord God of hosts. (One) For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea; (Two) the Lord is in his holy temple, let all the earth keep silent before him; and (Three) the righteous shall live by faith.

God is not calling to our intellects. He is calling to our hearts. He is calling to that deep inner place where we are, to where we will become his people. And when we become his people, then he becomes Lord of all. When that happens, then no matter what he does, it is within the realm of his love and his kindness and his mercy and his grace. We have a God who is so great that he will work through us to bring his miracles and to bring his healing. Because it’s God who is in control, and we trust only in him.
