The Journey

The Journey Readings: Week 132… and… His Sovereignty…

If you ever wondered about His Sovereignty in all things… wonder no more…

Jeremiah puts it clear as day in his notable lament…

Who has spoken and it came to pass,
unless the Lord has commanded it?
Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
that good and bad come?
Lamentations 3:37-38 ESV
Nothing… and I mean nothing… happens…
apart from the Lord’s command…
Jeremiah wept bitter tears…
over all that befell Jerusalem and her people…
but we learn from him…
the proper way to receive… 
the Lord’s discipline…
Remember my affliction and my wanderings,
the wormwood and the gall!
My soul continually remembers it
and is bowed down within me.
But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is thy faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:19-24 ESV
By faith we remember… He… is… good…
merciful… loving… purposeful…
in… all… things…
good… and… bad…
