Is God in Control of Everything and Everyone?

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.”

                        Romans 8:28

Is God in Control of everything that happens to us and around us? This is one of the questions that crosses the mind of some people at some point in their lives whether they are Christians or not. What do you think? Do you believe God is in control of tornados, death, you getting that job you desire, earthquakes, letting someone be harmed, illness, healing, having money or not having money, what you do or not do, etc.?

The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand:”

                        Isaiah 14:24

How does free will factor into situations and our lives as human beings?

Today’s Meditation

Him we preach and proclaim, warning and admonishing everyone and instructing everyone in all wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God), that we may present every person mature (full-grown, fully initiated, complete, and perfect) in Christ (the Anointed One).

Colossians 1:28 (AMPC)
