You Control It

"But when you decide to break free, you will shake his yoke from your neck" (Genesis 27:40b, NLT)

Dear Friend,

Can you imagine Jesus dying for you to have access to an abundant life, but you still live in doubt, poverty, oppression, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and (insert your struggle here)? Unfortunately, for many, we don't have to use our imagination because we live in that reality. Yet, the good news is that you don't have to stay there.

One day, I was lamenting (a cute word for complaining) to God about something I didn't have. I was literally going in about the issue and how I felt. But, you know how God does; He'll let you get it all out and then hit you with some of those lines He gave Job.

Here are a few ways God read Job:

"Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!" Job 38:4-5

"Have you ever given orders to the morning, or shown the dawn its place, that it might take the earth by the edges and shake the wicked out of it?" Job 38:12-13

"Have you journeyed to the springs of the sea or walked in the recesses of the deep? Have the gates of death been shown to you? Have you seen the gates of the deepest darkness? Have you comprehended the vast expanses of the earth? Tell me, if you know all this." Job 38:16-18
