Reflection

God demonstrates His power and rule over His creation time and time again.

He divided the sea and delivered the Israelites (Exodus 14).

He uses a donkey to speak to Balaam (Numbers 22).

He raised Lazarus from the dead (John 11).

This same God is demonstrating His power and rule here and now.

He works ALL things – not all kinds of things, not a few things, but 100% – for the good of those that love Him, who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:38). How could He do so if He did not have sovereign dominion over His creation?

We may be struggling. Various events in the world, and possibly in our own lives, may confuse us. It may seem to us that God is not working among His creatures. Yet His word tells us otherwise, and His word is sure. Do not let the trials of this world loosen your grip from that truth!

 

Questions to Consider

  • Can you see God’s sovereign dominion over His creatures at this time?
