The Practicality of Meticulous Sovereignty

God's sovereignty means much to me. It is huge. It shouldn't be denied and debated. It should be embraced like a warm blanket on a cold winter day. What a comfort it is.

I was reminded of this recently when seeing the family's response to Dianne Schreiner's recent bike accident. Read her son Patrick's post "Trusting Christ Through Trauma." Go read the updates on Facebook by Tom Schreiner. This is where theology meets the road and it is beautiful. God is in control and God is to be trusted. He is good.

Listen to how Charles Spurgeon expresses this truth:

"It would be a very sharp and trying experience to me to think that I have an affliction which God never sent me, that the bitter cup was never filled by his hand, that my trials were never measured out by him, nor sent to me by his arrangement of their weight and quantity"

(C.H. Spurgeon, "The Anguish and Agonies of Charles Spurgeon," p. 25)
