Is Anything Beyond God’s Control?
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:11
What’s under Jesus’ control? Mark chapters 4-5 show us some of what God has placed under the authority of our Lord Jesus.
You’ll find Jesus stilling the storm (vv. 4:35-41); He is the Master over disaster. You’ll find Him healing a demon-possessed man (vv. 5:1-20); He has authority over demons.
Jesus heals a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years; disease is under His domain (vv. 5:24-34).
Finally, in these chapters, He raised Jairus’ daughter from the dead; Jesus has authority over death (vv. 5:38-43).
So what’s under Jesus’ control?
- The weather/disasters
- Health issues
Whatever befall—disaster, demons, disease, or even death—Jesus Christ is Lord!
Friend, meditate upon this passage and rest in Him today, for He has it all under His control. Ephesians 1:19b-22—
“… according to the working of His [God the Father’s] mighty power, which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him [Jesus] at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come. And [God the Father] put all things under His [Jesus’] feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church.”
