Who’s in Charge?

  Proverbs 21:1: “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.”

“I hope I can go to the conference,” I told my friend on the phone. “I’ll ask for vacation time.”

After we hung up, I faced a decision. I could stay up most of the night and worry. Another option would be to pray to the Lord for favor and ask a prayer partner to pray with me.

I’ve done both in the past, and I know worry and sleepless nights solve nothing. When you’ve wanted something, what have you done?

I prayed that God would allow me to go and called one of my prayer partners.

She said, “[Your boss’] heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.’”

She prayed and incorporated this Bible verse in her prayer.

That was all I needed to hear. I felt sure God wanted me to attend the conference. Peace came over me, and I thanked my friend for her Scriptural prayer.

After that call, I pulled out a suitcase to pack for the trip.

Sometimes we forget the Lord is in charge. I’m thankful for a prayer partner who reminds me as she prays the Word of God.

Dear God, help me remember you are in charge. Amen.

Application: What will you do this week to remind yourself that “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD”?
