So, Who Really is in Control?

"He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke." (Psalm 104:32) I can't help but think of this verse with the recent volcano explosion in Iceland...and, yes, even the earthquakes that have recently taken place. It's interesting that we the people who reside on this earth can think that we are in control of and must control everything and think very little of God in the process--like manipulating the clouds for rain, reducing the number of cows because of their "emissions", etc. Now, I'm not saying that we should abuse the earth--we should take care of it, of course! However, one little "look" and/or "touch" from God can remind us mighty quickly of who is really in control. We cannot just go on with our lives with disregard of who and what God is. What God can do and allow--and what He has chosen NOT to do or allow--has much more impact that anything we can ever imagine. Recent events are a reminder to us all to honor and serve and fear the One who is ultimately at the helm.
