Thanksgiving Challenge, Day 7

 Day #7: I'm thankful that God is sovereign.

It's so comforting to be in relationship with a God who is in control of all things. Nothing surprises him. He never has an "Oh crap!" moment. He's not scrambling around in Heaven trying to figure out how to make everything all work out. He doesn't worry about how he's going to keep his promises. He's never afraid that he might not be able to fulfill his purposes.

The more I allow these truths to wash over me, the less worry and fear I have. For "his dominion is an eternal dominion; his kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: 'What have you done?'" (Daniel 4:34-35).
