everything comes from him

Like many, or most, I like to keep up with world news. I usually do this by checking the internet occasionally during the day or watching the nightly news on TV. The world seems to be in a constant state of turmoil and most of that turmoil seems to be due to the harm that some people have in mind to do to others (the rest seems to be due to natural phenomena like hurricanes, typhoons and wildfires or mudslides). We don't see God named as a key figure in the daily news very often, unless His name is used improperly to rally people against one another or unless there is a challenge to religious freedom. As I have been listening to the book of Romans I was reminded this morning that God is the biggest player on the news scene every single day. From sun up to sun down and through the night this place He created is moving through His sovereign control...even when it appears to be staggering from the daily news coverage. He is working His purposes out...purposes that have been in His mind from the beginning. Here is a quote from the end of Romans 11 that underscored this to me:
Romans 11:36 For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.
blessings as we bow before Him today!
