Have you ever had someone take over the control of your computer remotely? My son, David, who lives in Minnesota works in IT and today I texted him because I kept having a malware cleaner pop up wanting to clean my computer. (He told me, "I wouldn't install malware. Haha!" I do know that much, Dave...) So to fix it, he had me download a program which would allow him to remotely operate my computer. It looks like this (watch the cursor--my hands weren't touching my laptop--I was filming):
I told David I loved to see him work--it was almost like having him here! As I watched him clean up my computer, I had the thought that this was a lot like giving God control of my life. I had to give David permission to work remotely on my laptop. Just like I have to release control to God. David took over because he knew things I didn't know. He could tell at a glance what needed to happen when I didn't. Just like God. He knew how to repair the problem and bring order out of chaos. And after it was all over, my machine was operating properly and at a better speed. All like God. It was an interesting analogy to watch take place right in front of me.
