The God Who Rules ALL Things Well
I'm so glad God sends me tokens of His love.
Sometimes it's just peace, complete peace, when a situation is rearing it's ugly head and threatening to destroy what I love most.
John Wesley said it well when he said, "I see God as sitting upon His throne, ruling all things well."
I've repeated that to myself so many times this week. And it reminds me to believe it that, YES, God IS on His throne, and He is ruling ALL things well!
Then there are other things - things that I thought would never work out so well, and they have. They remind me again, "Oh, ye of little faith! Why did you doubt?!"
Why do I not believe the Sovereign God to order all things well in my life and in the lives of those around me?
Why do I fret... worry about stuff that seems to big and awful to me, and yet seems so little and simple to God?
This is probably the five-hundredth time I've had to learn this lesson. I don't know why I forget so quickly. But I'm glad God never stops reminding me: "See, Mary? I'm God. I can take care of this."
Yes, Lord. You can do all things. I know that you can...
