God's Sovereignty

I should be at work this morning, but I again stumbled across another bible verse this morning that caused me to take a step back. Ok, I don't really believe that we stumble across bible verses, I truly believe that God weaves the tapestry and we are exactly where we are suppose to be at exactly the right time. This morning I was walking at the park listening to Christian radio. One of my favorite talk radio shows is Family Life Today with Dennis Rainey. This morning, they continued with their conversation with Tommy Nelson, a pastor in Texas that is known for his insightful Songs of Solomon and Ecclesiastes sermons. This morning, Mr. Nelson quoted Deuteronomy 29:29:

"The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law." NIV

Now, if I was a bit cynical (which I may be), my first response would be a "hmph!" But if we dig deeper, and truly believe that all things happen for a reason, then God is sovereign, He knows all things, He is in control of all things. And maybe, just maybe, we don't need to know the "whys" of why things happen.

I'll write more of my thoughts later.
