God Is in Control
WHEN WE ENTER INTO … SILENCE, we are seeking — and eventually we encounter — something profound: the freedom of God. The silence of prayer separates us from our projects and our need to be in control of every aspect of our lives, and when we allow this to occur, we are free to let God do with us as God desires.
- Daniel Wolpert
Leading a Life with God: The Practice of Spiritual Leadership
Actually we know that God is in control. But we sometimes are full of wants and greed, while at the same time we want to control everything in our life. Daniel Wolpert reminds us, when we enter into silence, we are seeking Him with all our heart, then we’ll find something valuable: the freedom of God. To let God be our God and guide in this life is the best thing to do. We need to pray everyday so that we can be in this stage.
You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you
--- Romans 8:9
