Day 16: What does the Bible say?

Standard

So… I have talked a lot about releasing control these past couple of weeks and have used scripture some, but not a lot.

So, I thought I would turn to God’s word and see what He says about control. I entered in “God” and “Control” into the search engine on biblegateway.com and this is what it gave me:

  1. Job 37:15
    Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
    Job 37:14-16 (in Context) Job 37 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Jeremiah 28:14
    This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I will put an iron yoke on the necks of all these nations to make them serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and they will serve him. I will even give him control over the wild animals.’”
    Jeremiah 28:13-15 (in Context) Jeremiah 28(Whole Chapter)
  3. Titus 2:5
    to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word ofGod.
    Titus 2:4-6 (in Context) Titus 2 (Whole Chapter)
  4. Titus 2:12
    It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
    Titus 2:11-13 (in Context) Titus 2 (Whole Chapter)
  5. 2 Peter 1:6
    and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance,godliness;
    2 Peter 1:5-7 (in Context) 2 Peter 1 (Whole Chapter)
  6. 1 John 5:19
    We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
    1 John 5:18-20 (in Context) 1 John 5 (Whole Chapter)
  7. Revelation 16:9
    They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
    Revelation 16:8-10 (in Context) Revelation 16(Whole Chapter)
There are so many different contexts here. Some dealing with God’s dominion over the earth and His control. Some dealing with us being self-controled. Some dealing with Satan being in control of the earth.
How do all of these things fit in with the topic of release. Well, I really want to explore that… so for the next seven days I am going to look at each one of these verses and what they each say about the topic of releasing control.

This blog is about lessons I am learning on a daily basis. I am a stay at home mom, so most of the lessons I learn from my children. Matthew 21:16 "'Do you hear what these children are saying?' they asked him. 'Yes,' replied Jesus, 'have you never read, '"from the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise'?"" God teaches us things in all different ways... These are my reflections on those lessons.
