Regardless of where life leads, be sure that God is still in control of all that happens…

Regardless of where life leads, be sure that God is still in control of all that happens…

I am reminded of….
A small boy was playing with his sailboat at the edge of a lake. When the wind pulled the sailboat away from the shoreline and out of his reach, he began to cry as he saw it moving farther and farther away from him.
An older boy came to the scene and began throwing stones at the boat. The smaller boy cried, ‘Why are you throwing stones at my boat?’ The older boy said, ‘You don’t know what I’m doing. I’m throwing stones on the far side of the boat to create some waves to bring the sailboat back to you. Trust me; I know what I’m doing.’

God knows what He is doing when He throws the stones in our lives. They are meant to draw us closer to Him, not to drive us from Him. He is not cruel.

Romans 8:28

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

I think of Joseph…
Genesis 50:20
20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

There is no such thing as coincidence in the life of the child of God. There is only providence!

Not everything God does is pleasant, but everything God does is right!
