“The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all. Bless the Lord, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word!” (Psalm 103:19-20)


A bird does not fall from the sky that the Lord does not know about. He is truly Sovereign over all that He has made and nothing will happen apart from His Sovereign will. There are many things we do not understand, but that never means that God is not good or gracious. We are called out of this age which knows good and evil to look to the Lord who is always good.

Lord, the evil in this world confuses me so that I see evil in good and good in evil. Help me, O Lord, to look to You and your clear direction. Your work is good and what You are doing is forever. Guide me into Your work and away from being a critic of Your work. Help me to learn how to bless You through all that I say or do. Lead me, O Lord, according to Your will now and forever.

Holy Spirit, come and minister to my spirit that I would move through the swirling fog of this age to see clearly that only the will of the Father shall be accomplished. Lift me up to walk the narrow path as You lead me. Grant me the blessedness that comes through Your grace and mercy to obey Your statutes and live into the eternal promises that You have placed before me. Amen.
