Text: Psalm 29:10 - The Lord sat as King at the flood; Yes, the Lord sits as King forever.
Sometimes things do not turn out the way we thought they would. Sometimes we mistake the will of man for the divine will of God.
The above verse from Psalms reminds us that when God destroyed the earth by flood He was King and that God is still King of the earth today. That in all things we can trust that His sovereign divine will is being accomplished as He pleases.
Often this does not make sense to us in our human minds. We cannot seem to wrap our mind around it or understand it. But in Isaiah God reminds us that He is much smarter that we are.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
We can trust that God knows exactly what He is doing with the decisions He makes. His perspective is an eternal perspective that we will not have until we get to eternity. However, we can trust that in all His plans that it is for our good.
And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.
So even in times when we feel confused by what we see happening and events unfold in ways that seem contrary to God’s purposes, that we can rest in the knowledge of His love for us and His desire to reconcile the world to Himself.
Let us hold steadfast to the word of God which is our firm foundation, not being swayed by feelings or the news on TV. His word is truth, His word is life, His word brings peace.
May the God of peace guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
