More from Erwin McManus today…
In a solar system where self is the sun around which everything revolves, pride, greed, and foolishness are our largest planets. And in this scenario, the gravitational force that works in the dark spaces in between is our need for control. As long as we’re living for ourselves, and our lives are about us, we will strive to control everything around us. The more self-oriented we are, the more controlling we are. Everything in our universe is required to work the way we determined it should.
Unfortunately, the more we try to control the world around us, the more out of control our world becomes. There are some things that are simply out of our hands. When God is not a part of our lives, we tend to begin to act as if we were God.
Is life spinning out of control? Have you considered letting go and trusting God?
Food for thought.
