God has total control of all the things He has created! It’s interesting how we think that we are out of God’s Will so many times. We really think that we are strong enough to be able to thwart God’s will. In our small minds, we think God is the size of us, or close to it, and with our type of strength, so we think we can do things that are out of His will. It is impossible for us to do anything outside of God’s will. There are billions of people on the Earth today, and if one person for one millisecond was able to be outside God’s will, then He would not be omnipotent. He would not be God anymore! God created everything and He totally controls everything. This is not what we have been taught, because with guilt laden sermons we have heard that we can do things out of God’s will which displeases Him, and this is impossible.
Let me give you an idea of what I’m talking about. We are made in God’s image and likeness; so, what we’re saying is that the way we’re made reflects the way God is made. We are made out of fluids, fibers, cells, molecules, atoms, neutrons, protons, neurons, electrons, genes, chromosomes, DNA patterns and on and on and on, and that is a type and shadow of how God is made also, but He is so vast we cannot see Him. Now that’s hard to understand, but it’s a fact. For example, let’s take a life source. An atom is a life source because an atom reproduces itself. It’s made out of a neutron and a proton and they create electrons, and electrons spin around in the orbit of the atom. Sometimes they spin around so fast that they fling themselves out of the orbit of the atom and they collide with another electron. Instantly, as they collide, one becomes a neutron; the other one becomes a proton, and they start creating electrons, and here we have a new atom, and it is a continuous life source that way, and those atoms are now formed into everything else in our body, all the organs and so on. Now there are billions of atoms in our body, and they form everything else in our body. Each atom is just a tiny, tiny little microscopic dot in us; and in exactly the same way, we are just a tiny, tiny little microscopic dot in our solar system; and our solar system is just a tiny, tiny little microscopic dot in our galaxy; and our galaxy is just a tiny, tiny little microscopic dot in our universe; and do you realize that our universe is just a tiny, tiny little microscopic dot in God. That’s how vast He is, and yet we think that we can hinder His will.
Let me show you something. If you decide to go to the store shopping, to buy food, for example, do you think that one of the atoms in your body can hinder you from going to the store to go shopping? Out of all the billions and billions of atoms in you, could one atom stop you from doing what you want to do? Of course not! It’s the same thing with God. We are like atoms in God. We cannot hinder Him. He is so vast, just like our bodies are so vast compared to one little atom. Now the interesting thing about one atom is, that atom is in us. It’s in me, for example, and I’m in that atom, just as much as that atom is in me. That atom has my DNA; that atom has my personality, my character. If that atom could be cloned into me, into a person, it would be just like me. It would have my personality, my character, my features, my very fingerprints. It would be exactly like me because everything that I am is in that atom, just like that atom is in me. This is exactly the way we are with God. We are in God and God is in us, the same way as we are in God, just like the atoms in our own body. We cannot be anything else but what God is. It is impossible for us to be anything else but what God is because we are IN Him, we OF Him; we are His character, His personality, His DNA. We are the very same thing that God is; because He is, we are.
Of course, religion, all religion has said that we can hinder God and it has also said that we are not like God. Now, that is not the truth. We are exactly like God. Paul the Apostle said in Acts 17:28, speaking of God, “In Him do we live and move and have our being.” In Jn. 14, Jesus said, “I am in the Father and the Father is in me,” and later on in the same chapter He said to the disciples, “You are in me and I am in you.” It cannot be any clearer than that we are in God. The Bible mentions it time and time and time again. If you have a computer, you can go into a Bible program, and you will see that it mentions that we are “in Jesus,” 12 times; it mentions that we are “in God,” more than 20 times; it mentions that we are “in Christ” some 89 times; “in the Spirit,” 7 times; and “in Spirit,” 20 times. Can you imagine how many times it refers to us being in the trinity? And yet, religion has said that we are far away from God. God is way up there in heaven and we are down here by ourselves, that we are supposed to try to please God because we are not like God. It is not the truth. We are IN Him; we are OF Him. We live and move and have our being in Him and we cannot be anything else but what He is, just like the atoms in our body can only be what we are. That’s the same way we are with God, exactly the same way.
In this day and age, God has opened our eyes to see Him so clearly. He has opened our understanding to understand Him so clearly, that we are at a place right now, where we know that we are totally in Him and He is totally in us. And we can say, just like Jesus, “I do what the Father does and I say what the Father says.” The key is not to wonder whether we are doing God’s perfect will all the time, but the key is to know that we cannot do anything else but God’s perfect will all the time. We are doing God’s perfect will all the time, continuously. This is the power that He has over us, because we are in Him and of Him. I know that we have been programmed in our minds to think differently, but this is the truth, directly from God, that in Him, we live and move and have our being, and in Him right now, we are doing His perfect will. We cannot do anything else.
If God is omnipresent, which means that He IS everywhere at the same time, He is IN everything at the same time that He has created, and everything that He has created is in Him. Therefore, He has total control, total charge, total rule, total authority, total power, and total dominion over everything and in this way, His perfect will is being done in everything all the time. All of His creation that He has created, and He has created everything, is under His dominion, and love prevails over everything. The greatest power there is is love. Love conquers everything because God is love. If God is omnipresent, that means He is in all the fluids of your body; He is in all the fibers of your body; He is in all the cells of your body; He is in all the molecules of your body; He is in all the neurons of your body; He is in all the atoms of your body; He is in all the protons of your body; He is in all the neutrons of your body; He is in all the electrons of your body. He is in all the genes of your body; He is in all the chromosomes of your body; He is in all the DNA patterns of your body; He is in everything that you are made of. There’s not a thing that He is not in.
God is all in all, (Eph. 4:6) and you become part of the all in all. Every thought and every action is totally under your control, Father. It’s all you. Every minute detail is you, Father, doing and saying and thinking and feeling and being. God allowed the fall to plunge the seed into the ground, into the earth. In this way, He is perfecting His creation. He continues to perfect His creation in us, through positive and negative; through darkness and light; through wet and dry seasons; through goodness and evil. We need never again fear that He will not prevail; for He can do nothing else. Just like one little atom is not able to hinder us from walking or singing or writing a letter or thinking thoughts or worshiping God, no more can we hinder God from doing anything at all. It is impossible.
