"The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases. All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs his heart. To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”
~ Proverbs 21: 1-3
So many voices all around us, calling us to listen to this and pay attention to that . . . . there is just so much to learn and understand about life. And when I start to wonder what is happening in my world, and get overwhelmed with all of the chaos and confusion, I remind myself of Who is really in charge of our world. If we had to depend on any human being to provide all that we need, always to make decisions that were "perfect," and to keep us safe, life would, indeed, be a frightening experience.
But I know that, whatever one believes about all of the turmoil that is gripping our country today, that our shelter is in our God. He is the one who is our Protector, our Redeemer, and our Guide through every difficult moment of our lives. In the midst of all of the voices that are calling to us today, we must remember that the last chapter of history has not been revealed yet. It has been written, for sure, but we have not read it . . . . but we can be confident that it has been written by One who knows and cares about our every concern, and He alone can protect us in our darkest moments of fear and struggle. I am confident that He will provide exactly what each of us needs, no matter our circumstances. He is in control of EVERY heart, including those who hold temporal power over our lives. I know Who is REALLY making all of the decisions!
