Are we in control? Reading through 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8, it becomes very clear that we need to ask ourselves who is actually in control of our lives. God desires that we be disciplined in what we do and how we do it. What are we thinking about? How are we acting? These are questions that God asks of us and as His children, we are to represent Him in all areas. Do we take control of our thoughts and actions, or are we allowing ourselves to be swept along to believe and act in whatever way we desire? Continue to follow God in all that He desires for us.
