For He Himself has said: "I will never leave you nor forsake you."
Some days ago I was reading my bible, the book of Revelation to be specific. In chapter 5:11b it says: "For You created all things and by Your will they exist and were created" (NKJV) and I started thinking. God wanted me to exist. He knew me by my name, what I would look like. He spent time thinking about what I would look like, who my parents would be, every detail that would help me to be who I am today. I wasn't an accident, or a random thought. I was well thought out. Every detail of my appearance and my life was carefully considered and then made a reality. In Jeremiah it says that before He formed me in my mother's womb, He knew me (Jeremiah 1:5a). This may be a popular enough verse for some of us but do we really know what that means? He knew us, what we would look like, where we would be born, who our family would be, what language we would speak. He knew all these details and more before we were even conceived. And people love to say that God is not in control! Yet, He orchestrates so much to bring us to where we are yet still giving us the power of choice to choose our own path and destiny. He orchestrated Jesus' birth and death. He knew who would do what and why. God is in charge, even when He gives us the power of free will. That may sound contradictory, but it isn't. He knows each of us. He knows the choices we would make and why. He knows how to bring us back on the right track even when we go astray. God is in control! He knows what is going to happen - both good and bad - before it does and has the answer or solution ready. If the all-knowing. all-wise God knows everything, even has the solution and answer to every situation, how can we say that He is not in charge, He is not in control? We, as mere humans with our mere human acts, cannot possibly throw God off course or take Him by surprise. And if this is the case, how blessed and secure are we who belong to Him! We have this confidence that no matter what or even who comes our way, our God has our back and the victory will ALWAYS be ours in Him!!!
