God Is In Control
God is in control;
Sometimes it’s hard to see.
It’s time we faced his reality.
God is supreme
In His sovereignty;
He is in control of eternity.
We reach for Him,
We try to grasp His hand;
He has made a way
Just like He planned.
His Son died for the sins of man;
He is our only sacrificial Lamb.
He paid the price;
He bore all our shame.
He gives life to those who
Believe on His name.
Take the free gift of God,
It’s yours to claim.
He will change your heart;
You will never be the same.

Isaiah prophesying about the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ:
Who hath believed our report?
and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him;
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Acts 17:26-28a And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being…
Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
