One Bible verse which gives me some of the greatest security is found in Job 42:2 "I know that You can do all things, and that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted." What security this is when I remember that God's purposes are designed by One whose nature is love.
I have days where I totally mess up. I make mistakes, I blunder along making mess after mess. Throughout it all, disorder is created, chaos seems to reign supreme, sadness can creep in, and suffering begins to surface as I recognize how far off from God's instructions I am concerning how life is to be lived. Yet He who is in control over all things tells me that, "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called to His purpose" Romans 8:28. He is supreme and sovereignly in control over everything...the crooked and the straight of life. "Consider the work of God, for who is able to straighten what He has bent? In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of adversity consider---God has made the one as well as the other so that man will not discover anything that will be after him" Ecclesiastes 7:13-14.
So when we despairingly think, "O Lord, bless this mess," He already has! He has worked even our mistakes into His plans for good! I firmly believe that a growing awareness of the sovereignty of God leads to a true stability in life and develops a gentle and quiet spirit within our hearts, which in God's sight is very precious.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!!!
