God is all-powerful!

Here is something I wanted to share with you from Crazy Love...

"Colossians 1:16 tells us that everything was created for God: "For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him."

Don't we live instead as though God is created for us, to do our bidding, to bless us, and to take care of our loved ones?

Psalm 115:3 reveals "Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him." Yet we keep on questioning him: "Why did You make me with this body, instead of with that one?" "Why are so many dying from starvation?" "Why are there so many planets with nothing living on them?" "Why is my family so messed up?" "Why don't you make yourself more obvious to the people who need You?"

The answer to each of these questions is simply this: because He's God. He has more of the right to ask us why so many people are starving. As much as we want God to explain himself to us, His creation, we are in no place to demand that He give an account to us.

"All the people of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the power of heaven and the people of the earth. No one can hold back His hand or say to Him: "What have you done?" Daniel 4:35"

This is me talking now... All of this is so true. I know I and many others ask God... why have you done this to me or why have you done this to my child? It confuses us so much, because we wonder why our God who loves us so much would put us through so much pain. And all the while we forget... He is God. He made us so very special and particular. He has this perfect plan set out for us before we were even a twinkle in our Momma and Daddy's eyes. He knew us before our Momma conceived us.

He has this plan set out for us and it may have pain in it, but this pain I believe is to draw us closer to Him... to cleave to Him... to talk and make a loving relationship with Him. He is the lover of our souls.

As I read this book my eyes and mind are being widened. I am seeing and thinking things I hadn't before. It is so amazing! He is so amazing! I can't wait for the day to come when I get to be in His presents and kneel at His feet and sing worship songs to Him.
