To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal? Says the Holy One. Lift your eyes on high, and see who has created these things, who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name, By the greatness of His might and the strength of His power; Not one is missing. Isaiah 40:25-26 NKJV
I have seen people get angry at God. Some of them turned their backs on Jesus. A man I know lost His first-born son. He said he did not want anything to do with a God who would take His son. I have even seen Pastors confess anger at God.
Many of us struggle with the sovereignty of God at one time or another.
We know the Jesus is in control of all things. We know Jesus loves us. We know Jesus desires to have intimate relationship with us. Why do we suffer trials and heartache? Why is life so hard? Why does evil seem to prosper while the people of God struggle?
People who turn their backs on God in anger judge Him unfairly. Who are we to declare God unjust? Only the Lord of Heaven and Earth can determine good and evil!
People who confess anger at God while choosing to obey Jesus declare their faith in Him!
I am not saying we should ever be angry at God. He is righteous and holy. He is merciful and just. A person who gets angry at the Lord acknowledges that God is sovereign. He or she knows God could change our circumstances. God is sovereign!
Jesus understands our struggles. He suffered more than any of us ever has. Jesus knew He would be tortured. He knew He would be crucified. Jesus prayed “Father, if it is your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.”
The God who created the heavens and the earth has no equal. He never will. God is all powerful. Opposition to His rule will not prosper. It will not prevail.
Jesus is in every place where people gather together in His Name. There is no place in all of creation that is beyond His reach and authority. Our God knows all things. He knows you by name. Jesus loves you!
Our King moves heaven and earth to get us where He wants us so we can walk in the Sonlight of His love. Jesus knows what we need when we need it to reveal the secret things of our hearts. He knows what it takes to keep us in the palms of His loving hands!
Are you struggling with your circumstances? Do you have questions for God? Call out to Jesus. He has the answers you seek!
Lift your eyes on high to the heavens. Behold the stars that light up the night sky. God created them. He knows them all by name. Not one of them has ever been lost.
Search your heart for the memories of those you have loved and lost. Jesus created them. He knows them all by name. Not one of them who lived by faith in Jesus has ever been lost. You can be reunited with them in the presence of Jesus if you live by faith in Him today!
