Let God take charge of your life

In the Mahabharata war, "Lord Krishna" did not fought the war & only became the charioteer of "Arjuna". In the war, Arjuna did not ask for the huge army of "Lord Krishna" but wanted him to be his charioteer only. Arjuna knew that Lord Krishna is almighty, Supreme personality of Godhead & in all circumstances He will take him in right direction & direct him in such a way that he is always protected from his enemies. It happened in that way only & Arjuna was protected by "Lord Krishna" in all circumstances & he won the war in the end.

In the same way we should also give charge of our life to "Lord Krishna" or God. You just put your life at the feet of God & let God direct every action of your life. When you shall let God take charge of your life, then you too shall always be protected in your life by Him. Just take an example. When you board a flight by buying a ticket, then you just sit in your seat & tie yourself to the seat with safety belt. You do not know how to fly the airplane & if something goes wrong in the air then you yourself are in no position to do anything. In fact when you board a plane you are 100% at the mercy of it's Pilot. If the Pilot is capable & is having good experience in controlling the flight then you are safe & Pilot shall protect you in adverse circumstances & shall land you safely. If Pilot is not experienced enough to manage in adverse circumstances then it's up to your fate only what shall happen.

In the same way let's give the control of our life to the Best experienced Pilot, who is non other than "Lord Krishna".

In Bhagwat Gita Lord Krishna tells Arjuna to always have faith in Him only as, whosoever, keeps faith in Lord Krishna, He always protects that devotee.

"man-mana bhava mad-bhakto
mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaishyasi satyam te
pratijane priyo ’si me" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65)

"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend."

"sarva-dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
mokshayisyami ma suchah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 66)

"Lord Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear."
In the last verse of Bhagwat Gita, "Sanjaya" is also of the same opinion.

"yatra yogeshvarah krsno
yatra partho dhanur-dharah
tatra srir vijayo bhutir
dhruva nitir matir mama"
(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 78)

"Sanjaya said: Wherever there is Krishna, the master of all mystics, and wherever there is Arjuna, the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion."

So let's have complete faith in "Lord Krishna" & let's be His devotee. By having devotion in Him we shall be saved always by Him in all circumstances.

Not only of the saints but as per "Lord Krishna", even if a vilest sinner becomes His devotee then also He rescues that person. Below verses of Bhagwat Gita explain that only.

Api chet su-duracharo
bhajate maam ananya-bhak
sadhurev sa mantavya
samyag vyvasito hi sah'
(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter IX verse 30 )

'Even if the vilest sinner worships Me with full devotion, he should be considered a noble soul or saint; as he has taken the right step by worshipping Me.'

'kshipram bhavti dharmatma
shasvac-chantim nigachati
kauntey pratijanihi
na me bhaktah pranashyati'
(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter IX verse 31)

'He speedily becomes virtuous and secures lasting peace. O son of Kunti, know it for certain that My devotee never falls.'

Through above verse 31, God is telling Arjuna that such a sinful person after becoming His devotee becomes a person of good virtues and always remain in peace & such a peace is not temporary but is ever lasting. God is assuring the son of Kunti (another name of Arjuna, his disciple) that his devotee never falls again in life as He always protect him. So let's all worship the God, "Lord Krishna" always so that He can protect us always. Jai Sri Krishna.
