If God is in control . . . .

A lot of folks are in a panic today over the stock market and the economy – even those who profess to believe in the sovereignty of God. I’m caoncerned, as well, but it concerns me even more that so often folks view God as sovereign in spiritual things – but somehow limited, or inactive, in other things.

In the interest of full disclosure, let me say that I have mutual funds and market accounts through my retirement. I do not have gold buried in the backyard. This is not an “I told you so” post.

This is just a reminder of who is in control. It is important to realize as powerful as the “Fed” is – they are not in control. As powerful as the IMF and the G-8 are, they are not in control.

You see, if God is sovereign – and He is. Then He is in control. He is over all. The spiritual, the financial, the physical – all.

I believe what is happening is what He said would happen. If “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” Then, is it not also true that when the nation’s god is not the Lord, the blessing will be taken away?

For now, we are still better off than we deserve. But, for years, as a nation, we have been consumed with worshipping the material god. Finances have fallen and God is still on the throne.
