Don't exert or scheme to gain control.
God is god and you are not.
Don't depend on Human abilities.
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Do cultivate a regular listening to God. Be very careful, then, how you live —not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. - Ephesians 5:15-17
When we read the Bible, we will learn to recognize the way God talks to us, the kinds of things He says, and the merciful love He offers. God is:
- Omniscient – all knowing
- Omnipresent – universal presence at the same time
- Omnipotent – all powerful
- Holy, Faithful, and Sovereign Infinite – without measure, forever
