Since eternity past and throughout the entire history of man, almighty God has ruled with supreme authority. Nothing is hidden from His knowledge or beyond the scope of His control. Because of His sovereignty, we, who by faith in Christ are part of His family, can live with the assurance that: God works for our good. Scripture declares that God has the power to work every circumstance in our life into something that is beneficial in His eyes. He has the knowledge and power to accomplish it, as well as the desire. God promises to do this for those who love and belong to Him. Our part is to believe. God protects us every day. His Word declares, the angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. (Psalm 34:7) Nothing can touch God’s children apart from His permissive will. When God allows painful things to happen, we must trust in His unchanging nature and enduring promises.
Circumstances and people change, but His good and loving character does not. God has control over our future. He has a plan fully worked out for the body of Christ and each of its members–a plan so good that it is beyond imagining. We can entrust our future to God because His character and plans are perfect. Resting in the Lord’s sovereignty will free us from fear and anxiety. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
