Why am I so calm?
The study that I'm doing on the book of Daniel has been taking me through, not just Daniel, but other parts of the Bible that speak of God's power and might over the entire realm of humankind. This morning it took me to Isaiah 14:24, 27:
The LORD Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen...For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?"I have nothing to fear, for God, the Almighty, is in control.
It is NOT up to me to find our house; God already has our house chosen. So, if we don't get the house we want, that's because God has not willed it, and who am I to question his plan?
It is NOT up to me to sell our house; God has already chosen the person who will buy it. So, if we don't sell it right away, or to the person who I think would be the best, that's because God has not willed it, and who am I to question his plan?
It is NOT up to me, or any other person, to ensure that all goes smoothly with Evie's surgery; God has already written her story~the story of her life; the story of MY life. So, if there are complications with health, or billing, or anything in between, that's because God has willed it, and who am I to question his plan?
NO ONE and NO THING can stop God's will~his design is perfect.
