HE'S GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN HIS HANDS


You are to live as children, trusting in Me as a good Father. What child wakes up in the morning worrying about what is happening in the world? Instead, they go out and play. If there is a bully, they run to their daddy to "take care of" the bully. They taunt, "My dad is stronger than yours and will beat up your dad." 


That is the way you should view Me. Just because things are not happening the way you think they should go does not mean I am not in control. Nothing happens without My knowledge. Remember Job? In the end, he wasn't complaining; he was repenting. 


Stop trying to figure Me out and trust that I am Sovereign. I do know the end from the beginning. If you could see life from eternity's perspective, as I do, you wouldn't question the way things are unfolding. 


Your enemy's plan has always been to have you question Me and My goodness. "Has God said....?" Your response should always be, "As a matter of fact, yes, He has said____ (Then remind him of My promises to you.) Declare "I trust Him, and although I do not understand His Ways, I know He is ALWAYS Good." Selah.


Romans 11:33-36 New International Version (NIV)

33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!

How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!

34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?”

35 “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?”

36 For from him and through him and for him are all things. To him be the glory forever! Amen.


Job 42:1-6 Living Bible (TLB)

1 Then Job replied to God:

2 “I know that you can do anything and that no one can stop you. 3 You ask who it is who has so foolishly denied your providence. It is I. I was talking about things I knew nothing about and did not understand, things far too wonderful for me.

4 “You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! Let me put the questions to you! See if you can answer them!’

5 “But now I say, ‘I had heard about you before, but now I have seen you, 6 and I loathe myself and repent in dust and ashes.’”


Isaiah 55:8-9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

8 The Lord says, “My thoughts are not like your thoughts. Your ways are not like my ways.

9 Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways

and my thoughts higher than your thoughts [Ps. 103:11].
