God’s Loving and Careful Rule

God is all powerful and is in careful rule of every thing in his universe. Beyond finite comprehensibility God works his will and good purpose. Throughout the Bible this God’s power is proclaimed:

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.” Psalm 115:3

Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it?” Lamentations 3:37

The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.” Proverbs 16:33

Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” James 4:15

Speaking of God working good through evil agents, Joseph says:
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” Genesis 50:20

Jesus said:
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.” Matthew 10:29-30

We have a great source of providential comfort, a great relief from stress and a great encouragement to rest in the power of God every day.

Your Pastor,
