Devo Who is in charge of this world
1 John 5:19 (NIV)
19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
I cringe when I hear someone say God is in charge of this world. As Gideon said
“God if your with us why are we in this mess”? He understood that if God is with you you’re on top. God revealed that there is a battle to win if man is to rule. Man gave the reigns over to Satan in the Garden. God gave rule to man and man to Satan. Not at all to say that God could not be in charge. He left it up to man and he blew it. Jesus came to give us dominion back, but we have to take it and it won’t be fully ours until death in put under His feet. The earth is in pain while it waits for our adoption as sons. In the mean time we fight. We battle until the last battle. (We win, I cheated and read the end of the book.) This is basic and unless we understand that the world is under Satan’s rule for now we will misunderstand the working of God and His scripture.
