I thank You, Lord, for the Bible’s many reminders of Your complete power over all things. The truth is a source of comfort for me when I see the wicked attempts to somehow thwart Your plans. I admit that sometimes I am tempted to believe You cannot anticipate their actions, and the best You can do is minimize the damage left in their wake. But Your Word says otherwise. No corner of the earth is so remote, no living soul so rebellious that it can act separately from Your sovereignty. You have the power to orchestrate the affairs of men, nations, and even the natural world so that they achieve Your grand purpose. Whatever You please to do will happen. For that I praise Your name.
