Re:Verse passage: Revelation 10:1-9; 11:1-15 (day four)
Our God is a God of details. At the creation of the world, even the smallest details of design were carefully planned and executed. Now, as we read in our Re:Verse passage this week, we discover that the end of time has been carefully planned out with every detail in place. From start to finish, God has established a well-ordered design. Every event in history, from creation to final judgment, has been a part of God’s grand design.
For a God to be able to plan such a vast array of details…each one building to a climax of grace and judgment…why do we question whether or not He can take care of the details of our lives? Something happens…good or bad…in our lives, and we begin to “re-calculate” the direction of our life, based on the new circumstances. Our “re-calculations” may be accompanied by great anxiety or great excitement, depending on the circumstances.
When will we learn to go to God first to seek His counsel…His direction…His wisdom…His comfort. Paul said it best…”Be anxious for nothing, in everything give thanks.”
