Our Sovereign God - April 2, 2020

Many years ago I spent a week visiting the interior of Brazil with a longtime missionary pilot.  Just to say, Wilbur and Orville had a sturdier aircraft!  I could not get comfortable.  I kept thinking the plane was going to crash in the jungle and I’d be gobbled up by piranhas.  I kept shifting around, looking down and gripping my seat—as if that would help.

Finally the pilot had enough of my squirming.  He looked over at me and shouted over the airplane noise, “We won’t face anything that I can’t handle.  You might as well trust me to fly the plane.”  Is God saying the same to you?  Examine those poles of your faith, those truths which sustain your belief in God.  Make sure one of them is etched with the words, “My God is sovereign!”  Then be anxious for nothing!
