Life is a mysterious thing. A day can be going along just wonderfully & then, in a second, change completely. Life is then left forever changed. Forever different.
Our response at that very moment is most critical.
In her Bible Study, Knowing God By Name: A Personal Encounter, Mary Kassian writes:
Satan is on a “leash”, so to speak, acting only within the limits that God assigns. (page 30)
I love the fact that God is sovereign. For me, this is a most precious thought & the source of eternal hope, confidence, comfort, and joy. His sovereignty means I can trust Him. When the ugliness of sin, strife, and struggle seems more than I can bear; when life deals me a bitter blow and my heart is crushed with pain; when everything seems out of control, I can anchor myself to His greatness. His sovereignty is my surety. I can rest in the knowledge that when all is said and done everything will be alright. He will make it so. His counsel will stand, and He will accomplish His purpose. He is sovereign. He is God. (page 31)
Again, our response at that very moment is most critical. May we immediately anchor ourselves to His truth: He never changes; He is never any less God, He is always sovereign & He will keep us stable, steady.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm & secure.” (Hebrews 6:19 NIV).
Our hope, in Jesus Christ, is our anchor. May we anchor ourselves to His greatness.
