God is in Control
“Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.” 1 Chronicles 29:12 (NIV)
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.
It is not always clear why a good man can fall from authority and an evil man can ascend to authority. What we can be certain of is that God is in control and like the movement of chess pieces on a board, God has an ultimate end in mind.
Let’s pray today that we may find hope in knowing that our Lord is aware of earth’s events and He is in control.
