The World After the Flood—Who Holds the Reins?

I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges.

You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above.

John 8:50 NKJV; John 19:11 NKJV

The World After the Flood—Who Holds the Reins?
After God had judged the world through the flood, He made a new start with Noah and his family. But again, the people failed. Instead of obeying their Creator, trusting that He only wanted the best for them, they tried to reach heaven by their own efforts at the Tower of Babel. Their pride even led them so far that they wanted to make a name for themselves and control the population of the earth independently of God (see Gen. 11).

Is this not typical for our time too? People strive to maintain control themselves rather than handing it over to God. What is the situation in your life?

What was Jesus’ attitude when He lived here on earth? Among His disciples, He was the Servant who washed their feet (Jn. 13:3–12; cf. Lk. 22:27). He did not seek His own glory here, but sought the glory of the One who had sent Him (Jn. 8:50). Instead of wanting to control everything Himself, He gave the guidance of His life to the Spirit of God and made Himself dependent on what His Father communicated to Him. Resting in the knowledge that God holds the reins, He said to Pilate, “You could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above.”

-- Philip Svetlik

When He in flesh the desert passed,

He loved to do Thy will;
His food it was, through to the last,

Thy pleasure to fulfill.

He glorified Thee on the earth:

Thy work by Him was done;

And Thou, who knewest all His worth,

Didst glorify Thy Son.
