I own a universal remote control, but it doesn’t work. I’ve been pushing buttons all day and I haven’t been able to control the universe at all!
Sometimes we are able to “change the channel” in our lives. We can make decisions that will alter what is happening around us.
At other times, however, we are helpless to change the circumstances that are thrust upon us. We simply must endure the situation and trust in the One who really does control the universe.
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”—2 Corinthians 4:16-18.
Relax, and hand Him the remote.
