11 Reasons Why You Should Let God take Control
1. You Cannot Always Help Yourself Anyway
King David, the great king of Israel anointed of God to do battles for the Lord, a man who never lost any battle was confronted with a situation in his life that was beyond him at the time.
His son, Absalom had just being killed by Joab, one of David’s top generals (against the king’s wish and command that Absalom should not be killed).
The king could not hold himself when he heard of the death of his son.
In the midst of the king’s anguish and sorrow, Joab shut him down and even threatened to take his life if he does not co-operate and stop being sober for the death of his son Absalom.
David was helpless.
He couldn’t do nothing to help himself at the time.
He quickly braced up and start acting as though everything was fine, that way, letting God take control. (See 2 Samuel 18:1-19:1-7)
There are situations where you cannot help yourself, all that you need do at such time is to let God take control.
Sure enough, He will show up for you in the long if you keep your faith.

Letting God take control no matter your strength and abilities is a safe thing to do.
You can be sure that when God takes and gets control of a life and situation, it will end in praise and glory.
So dear, it is the safest and surest thing in the world to let God take control.
3. He Knows About Your Today And Will Work Out Your Tomorrow

But only if you let Him take control.
4. He Is Able To Avenge You
A lot of the time, we are confronted with situations of abuse, misunderstanding and injustices.

In such situation, it is best to turn it over to the Lord, letting Him take control.

See Hebrews 10:30

God has called you and me to a life of trust, trusting Him with our today and tomorrow and He promises to work things out.
God’s word that says for you to let God take the control is good enough reason to do so.
