God’s Sovereignty – Our Simple Responsibility

Consider Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Also, consider Ephesians 1:9-11, “making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him, we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will.”

How then should you live?

Things may not always go as we have planned or according to our liking. We will not always understand how the vast array of forces interact and influence the public consciousness to drive current events. Be assured all current and future events are under God’s control, and serve his purpose being intricately woven together and aligned with the counsel of his will. 

With so many variables beyond our control, I am still at peace knowing that it is God who, at His choosing, instructs me and guides me in line with His purpose for my life, and that of the nations to conform to the purpose He’s designed, So, in the light of that truth I work, and in his hands I rest.
