My sister said it the other day and it spoke to me--deep down. And if it's true then nearly every thought is affected.
"He has us exactly where he wants us."
On purpose. With precision. According to his sovereign plan.
"Not (even one sparrow) falls to the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows."
In this now of ours he is working. In this season he is refining and building our faith. Whatever today looks like--with all its seeming complications and hindrances--he is moving about, orchestrating and reigning, transforming and mending.
If it's not so then he is not the God revealed in scripture. The revealed God means things; he doesn't just use things. He loves to the point of death and restores the broken.
He has us where he wants us. On purpose. With precision. According to his sovereign plan. Believing it so changes...everything.
Bringing it home...
Do you believe that he has you where he wants you?
What does believing him sovereign over the daily happenings do to our hope and faith?
