In His Hands

Since the sovereign God has every atom in the universe precisely timed and controlled for the carrying out of His perfect will, it should not be difficult for us to understand why He is so meticulous in His development of us as His instruments. “Being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will (Eph. 1:11).

 

 

You are one of God’s rough diamonds, and He is going to have to cut you so that you may really shine for Him. It takes a diamond to cut a diamond. You are to be ground and cut, and hurt by other diamonds, by other Christians, by spiritual Christians.

 

 

God sends us such trials as are exactly fitted for us. Our Heavenly Father knows what will best serve us. He serves us by trials and by comforts. Let us remember that our trials are few—our evil ways are many; our worthiness nothing—our comforts great. When God tries us let us consider how we have been trying Him. By grace we will not murmur, but humble ourselves under His mighty hand, and He will exalt us in due time.”

 

 

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you” (1 Pet. 4:12)

 

 

To bear up under trials, we must trust in the sovereign goodness of God in every situation.

  1. God is sovereign over all, even over the evil things people do.

  2. God is good in everything He does.

  3. We must trust the sovereign goodness of God in the midst of our trials.

  4. We must learn to live under the authority of God.

No matter how bad your day, God is in control, “though there be weeping in the night, joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5)

 

 

God has counted every tear in your life, they are measured as surely as the seas know their boundaries. (GW)

 

Pray for my son Matthew, the doctors are leaning towards a diagnosis of stomach cancer.

 

In 40 plus years of ministry there are two things I can always count on no matter what the situation; 1, God is and always will be God. 2; I am and always will be His. Nothing can change those two things.

 

Worrying is a form of unbelief, STOP.
