In Charge and Never Dropping the Ball

Daniel 4:35 “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But He does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth; And no one can ward off His hand Or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’
Have you ever considered how big God must be to keep the whole world in line? It isn’t just that He is organizing a picnic or even a marching band. God is Lord of all! It boggles the imagination. I have trouble organizing a family trip, what would it be like if I had to organize the whole world?

God says through the prophet Daniel, “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, But He does according to His will in the host of heaven And among the inhabitants of earth.” Can you imagine? “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing.” Compared to God, we are nothing. The people that we struggle with are nothing. The impossible situations we face are nothing. Those things that I find to be impossible are like dandelion fluff to God. That is how little our yelling and screaming and planning and scheming are to Him.

As I see it, we sure make a lot of noise about things that we can’t really control. I wring my hands and wonder if God can really work in my life. He responds, “All the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing.” God is in charge. He never drops the ball.

If God says something needs to be changed, it will be. If God decides to act, nothing can stop it. So Daniel says, “No one can ward off His hand Or say to Him, ‘What have You done?’” I am stopped by my lack of faith. I worry that something will thwart God. I worry that my life might fall out from under me and God will be shocked. That is not Daniel’s fear. He knows that no one can ward off His hand. No one can challenge His authority and demand that He explain Himself. What an awesome God we have!

God never drops the ball. He never says oops. He is fully in charge. We can trust Him!

Something to think about,
Pastor John
