Who is in control in the picture you see: the angry mob and the ruling authority, or the One who stands alone and condemned? What you see is the most remarkable control of God - when He did not act at all. We're tempted to doubt and judge God's control in the world today, but could you stand before God and claim that you are in control of your life? Our sinfulness testifies against us. That is exactly why Jesus willingly suffered in stillness. The result is that you stand forgiven fully in God's sight. So in your struggles with sin and in your doubts about the way the world is going, have no doubt that GOD IS (STILL) IN CONTROL.
