““I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”
” Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose.’”
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
People want to be around people of power … if they are in good favor with them. It is also impressive to be around someone who is extremely knowledgeable, but no one likes a know-it-all.
But being in the presence of God, the only truly sovereign being, is at once humbling and comforting. He knows us completely, yet He chooses us. Nothing is Hidden from Him, yet He accepts us. The plans of this world seem out of control, but He is in complete control of it all.
This is perhaps one of the attributes of God that I am most thankful for. A King Who rules over all takes time to notice each one of His former subjects who have become His children. His promises are always kept and His plans are foolproof.
His rule is perfectly righteous and He never wonders whether His decision is the right one, for He knows the end fully. He is never surprised nor anxious, for He set the world into motion and holds it all together.
In Him coincidences are truly divine appointments and circumstances are designed and orchestrated by Him. When evil makes its way into our lives, He is sovereign over that, too. Using all things together for our good and His glory. What an amazing God!
Lord, thank You for being Sovereign, Holy, Righteous. You amaze me, God, and are too great for me to fully comprehend.
