After a few days of helping my sister get moved into her new house, we joined my cousin and his family at a local Mexican restaurant (my favorite genre of food, unless desserts are a genre, for those who were curious). The sign behind the counter was too good to pass up. I was trying to take the picture quickly, and so it’s a little blurry… but the message is clear.
Yes, I know it says Jesús and not Jesus. But it was a clear reminder to me of a couple things:
1) Someone is in control of everything in my life… and yours for that matter. In fact, that Someone is in control of everything, period. That’s good news. Life is not a random set of occurrences. There is a plan. There is order, even when things seem chaotic. When you want to rant because life seems ridiculous, and you wonder if anyone is in control, relax. Someone’s got this.
2) That Someone who has everything under control is Jesus. The guy who fed multiple thousands on more than one occasion with only a handful of food… the guy who walked on water… the guy who calmed a storm-tossed sea with only His words… the guy who gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, and movement to the paralyzed… the guy who raised a few people from the dead… and also the same guy who, after taking some vicious torture and dying for our crimes against God, rose from the dead Himself three days later… Yeah, that’s who’s got this day under control. Jesus is the Person in charge.
That means that, regardless of how weary you are… or how sick you are… or how lonely you are… or how broke you are… or how dysfunctional you are… or how challenged you are… there is Someone you can turn to for help.
In the local Mexican restaurant, they think it’s Jesús. But in reality… in all of life… the Person who’s really in charge… the Person who truly has got this… is Jesus! If you have a problem, bring it to Him today. He’ll know just what to do to make things right.
