Charles Stanley Daily Devotion God Is in Control : David tells us in Psalms 103:19-22, “The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom rules over all.
Bless the LORD, ye his angels that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
David tells us of a fundamental aspect of God which is his sovereignty, which means that God has complete authority and control over all human beings and every aspect of the universe, it also means that luck and good fortune have no place in the discussion about him. Also because God is good, those of us who are believers can have full confidence in his absolute and loving control over every aspect of our existence.
When we trust in our heavenly father’s sovereignty we stand on two assurances, the first is that he is intimately involved in our daily lives, no matter what, he never stops providing, protecting and caring for every believer and keeping with his plans for our lives, he knows what we need for today and tomorrow, the second is that the lord will work every circumstance for our spiritual benefit, without exceptions, when situations are more demanding, our confidence may waver but God has promised that all things will work together for good to those who love him and to those who are called according to his purpose. We do not live by chance, as children of a sovereign God we live secured and under his control, trust him to carry you through whatever trials stand in your way.
