Our Reason for Rejoicing

"Christians have many reasons for rejoicing. The primary one is based on who God is—He is sovereign. That is the single greatest truth about God. Nothing is outside His control, and He controls everything to work out ultimately for our good (Romans 8:28). He has an infinite understanding of every aspect of our lives— where we are and what we say (Psalm 139:2–4). And He exercises His understanding in perfect wisdom. Knowing God like that should give us inexpressible and glorious joy."
-John MacArthur, The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

  1. I agree Jessica. The sovereignty of God is the most comforting of all truth - a soft pillow to lay our heads on at the end of a difficult day.


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
