Is there a Bible verse that says God is in control?
A commonly cited verse is Daniel 2:21, which says “He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.“
What does it mean to say we should control our lives?
The Bible is clear that God wants us to take hold of and turn our lives over to Him (Luke 9:23). It’s also clear that we can actively choose to do something, rather than being forced into it (Proverbs 16:9). In addition, James 4:17 says that when a person knows what they ought to do and yet does nothing, this is sin. This suggests the need for human responsibility in some areas of life.
In summary, you are responsible for your own actions. You have free will and are able to make decisions, but God has authority over us if we follow Him. If someone chooses not to follow God and decides they want to do their own thing without God, then there is a possibility of adverse consequences as a result – some good and some bad. However, those who choose to give their life to Christ and work out His plan for themselves can expect good results because His plan is perfect.
