When the World Seems Like Chaos, Who is in Control?

By: Russ Matthews

Who is really in control of this world?

In our personal lives and in the news, it is a great question. Things around the world seem outside of our control. War, COVID, floods… or in our personal lives… a bad diagnosis or one bad investment and we realise that it might be a pipe-dream to think that we are in control of our own destinies.

Money, beauty, power and control are fleeting. Which begs the question of who is truly in control of this world?

Beyond all of the conspiracy theories, the answer may be easier to discover than you would think. Of all places to look, the Bible provides an answer to the question of control. Even when this world seems out of control, there is one who is all-knowing, all-powerful and everywhere.

The God of the Bible continues to prove that despite what the media and entertainment want to tell us, he is the one who is ultimately in control.
