Everything happening in the world is happening because of our beliefs and decisions. “… the heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to man” (Psalm 115:16). God is not in control of the world. God is in control of Himself. We are only controlled by God to the degree we choose to be because He cannot and will not violate our free will. If He tells us we have free will, that we are created in His likeness and image, and then tries to control us, that would make Him a liar. And God is not a liar.
We are the only species in the world that can change the quality of our life. Ancient Hebrew Sages taught that there is nothing we do in this life that expresses the fact we are created in God’s likeness and image more than making decisions. We have authority because we are human beings created in the likeness and image of God. We have the freedom to make godly decisions and I want to show you how simple it can be!
