Sovereignty of God

Taken from Legacy of a Pack Rat, by Ruth Bell Graham ... page 81

"The fool have said in his heart, There is no God" (Psalm 14:1)

This goes also for those who doubt His sovereignty. Either He is sovereign or He is not. If He is not sovereign He is not God. Therefore when we become so preoccupied with and dismayed by circumstances and certain people that we doubt God's ability to handle them in His own way, and in His own time, then we, too, are fools.

It is this knowledge that enables us to accept the unacceptable. We can take whatever comes as from His hand, submit to it, and learn of Him all He seeks to teach us through those circumstances.

i need to remember that if i am doing all i know to do - then i need to allow the Lord to do the rest ... He remembers my frame ... He knows my weaknesses ... He is my Heavenly Father ... the quote from Ruth Graham's book just spoke LOUDLY to my heart ... i hope i can soak it in throughout the day ...

It is comforting to remember that God meets us where we're at. We don't have to try to fake it. He made us. He knows us intricately, better than we know ourselves. He loves us despite our imperfections. He comes to us. If we let him.
