“God makes all the decisions here. God is our king. God runs this place and he’ll keep us safe.” (Isaiah 33: 22, the Message Bible)
This puts things in perspective. It makes it wonderfully clear that we are not in charge of life. We have a mighty power governing our being and our experience. God is our king, the ruler over us all.
This doesn’t mean we are powerless or that we are being manipulated by some unknowable, out-of-touch entity. What it does means is that God, infinite good, the wisdom that is Love, is with us—guarding us, keeping us safe, while also causing us to grow, progress, discover more of the Life He would have us see and know.
God’s decisions are His law made manifest. They release us from worry and burden. His government is about true freedom. It protects our birthright as the children of God and defends us against any attacks on that heritage.
God runs this place—our space, our lives, our world—and He is trustworthy. He is all good, all the time, and He knows His ideas well. He knows what we need and who we are. And when we listen and trust, we know what is right and our choices are simply an agreement with His.
