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
  •     Demons
  •     Health issues
  •     Death

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
