I have deep respect and affection for Matt D. Redmond. He publishes a weekly “Things I Think” sort of column that usually contains more coherent thoughts than mine.
This week, he said this…
“5. One of the most life-giving things you will ever do is to go about your day knowing God is in control.”
My question to Matt would be “what does that mean?”
God is in control, but this world is not yet fully in subjection to it’s King…what does it mean when we say that “God is in control”?
I imagine an omnipotent King who reaches down into the corruption of this world and handholds his subjects to the age to come.
This is a fine profile of Michael Gerson… https://youtu.be/5DiqKyxz5Aw
Ultimately God IS in control
Right now He is letting things play out as His omniscience told Him it would….
Thanks for the link, Duane. Could tell those interviewed were deeply touched by him.
God is in control???? Horrible things have happened since the fall. Horror, evil, and yet in the mix, love, joy, laughter. What did those who hoped in Christ being King and bringing in the Kingdom think, when He hung on the cross and died? I imagine most thought all was lost, God was not in control, their hopes dashed……But Sunday was coming. After experiencing resurrection life by faith in Christ, I know He changed me, He saved and is saving me….I know there is a God who cares, who redeems the horror of the decisions of my life, and is working all things together for good ……….I cannot tell the hows or why of His ways, but I will remember what I have learned and experienced in the days of light and joy, when these days of sorrow and darkness try to overwhelm me, and I know I can safely cry out, “ Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.”
One addition to Nonnie’s post
Satan IS playing out his hand now…. AND the human race are the ” players.”
