Sovereign God

The weather has been very unpredictable lately. This morning, today’s weather forecast said: 60% probability rain 36mm expected and lightning / thunder storm . Usually the weather forecast is quite accurate, but not today:

Its been moderate sunny with a few clouds floating overhead!

I love that!  God is God!  He created the universe with such complexity and unpredictability – that no matter how many years we have been finding reliable ways to predict the weather; no matter how sophisticated our instruments, we can never get it right all the time. Its wild and its creative – like our awesome God!

Days like today remind me of how we cannot question who God is or what He chooses to do. It reminds me that no matter how much we try to “figure things out”. Often God chooses to do unexpected and hard things in our lives. Often we don’t know why God does things or allows things in our lives. All we can really do is walk in simple faith and trust Him – just like a little child does with his mom and dad.

Our almighty God is sovereign and we can only fall on our faces in awe and reverence before Him.

“And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” Mark 4v41
