Have you ever heard the phrase, “God is in control” and it just didn’t sit right?
Maybe it was given with good intention – to ease your pain, confusion, or disappointment. Maybe it was given to increase trust. But it seemed to only confuse your heart further by raising the question, “If He is in control and He is good, then why did this bad thing happen?”
What if control is a flawed word to describe God’s sovereignty? What if there is an infinitely better word, a greater revelation – LOVE!
This book is an invitation to discover the sovereignty of God’s love. I believe this message will empower greater trust and intimacy and it is my joy and honor to present it to you.
BACK COVER WRITE UP
“God is not in control, but He is in charge.” Bill Johnson
The moment we said yes to Jesus, we were invited into transition, from sinner to saint, from orphan to son, from lost to found, from law to grace, from slave to free, and from a theology of control to a theology of love…
“The opposite of love is not fear, it’s control.” Donald Miller
With grace and wisdom Jason writes about two narratives on the planet, two ways by which to know God, two theologies in the world of man: control or love.
“God is sovereign, and God is in control are two different thoughts, they are two totally different things.” Todd White
Jason highlights how a theology of sovereign control manipulates God’s sovereignty into something contrary to love. It compromises God’s goodness and positions humanity in the most desperate of insecurities.
“The belief that God controls everything that happens to us is one of the devil’s biggest inroads into our lives.” Andrew Wommack
This book is an invitation to grow sure in Gods sovereign love and transition from fear, insecurity and striving, to trust, intimacy and freedom.
“If God was in control, you wouldn’t have any freedom, you’d be controlled.” Graham Cooke

“It is not often my heart jumps when I read a book, but it did in reading, God Is (Not) In Control. This is a very needed book, with very needed truths for the church today.”

“In God Is (Not) In Control, Jason encourages us in a more generous, increasingly life-giving understanding of the nature of God, and so points us in the direction of greater fruitfulness in our own lives.”
“With the fresh and down to earth perspective of a practical theologian, Jason has written a book that will challenge your assumptions theologically and relationally with the profound truth that God’s love is the core of His being.”
“God Is (Not) In Control is an invitation to a friendship unlike any you’ve ever known or imagined. I pray you will walk away from this book with a full heart and hope swelling. Enjoy!”
