Let's go more upbeat today.
As is so often said--This is the day the Lord has made.
We know God created the world, and we know it is His.
Did He make this day for me personally?
Our small group talks about this often. Some people don't see God as "in charge" of our lives. One man doesn't even like for us to pray for people who travel because he says God doesn't have any control over the cars on the highway, etc. Another believes God never changes and we make our own choices which determine what happens to us. Then there are the few who believe God has a hand in our lives. A couple of us believe God speaks to us. Others have never heard Him outside of the Bible.
I can look at so many instances where I can't help but see God's soverignity at work in my life. And I can name many times I've heard His voice.
What do you think? Are we kind of on our own or does God really lead and guide us? Do you hear God speaking to you?
