God is in Control
“Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.” 1 Chronicles 29:12 (ESV)
God rules over both the wicked and the righteous, and He blesses who He wishes according to His will. We are sometimes bewildered at a wicked man’s success and forget to consider that God’s will for that is unknown to us. We wonder how some get elevated above the righteous and forget that God has a plan that we do not know. What we can be certain of is that God is in control.
Let’s pray today that we may never forget that our Lord is not unaware and always in control.
