We tend to think that there is always something that is controlling our life experiences.
Some point to fate - some point to self – some even point to the devil.
The Christian who surrenders completely into the purposes and plans of the Lord knows differently:
They look at a mountain and see God’s path over it.
They look at a wasteland and see the seeds hidden beneath.
They look at a crisis and see God’s opportunities to reveal himself.
They look at their needs and see sufficient provision.
They look at loss and see hidden things they have gained.
They feel safe under God’s control.
