Do you ever feel as though you don’t have what it takes to deal with what’s on your plate? Does life at times seem too hard? Have you ever wished that you’d more control over your own story?
Although many of the things that have shaped your story are out of your control, they’re under the careful administration of the God who not only created the world, but is the ultimate definition of everything that’s wise, good, loving, and true.
Your life hasn’t worked according to your plan because it’s part of a bigger plan. There is One who is Lord of heaven and earth. He’s written your personal story into his grand redemptive story!
Listen to what the Apostle Paul says about how each of us landed at the place where we now live, relate, and work:
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the exact times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.”
