Scripture reference for this post: 1 Chronicles 29: 10-15 All things come from the hand of God and we have no expectation of remaining on earth, my paraphrase.
Well, truth be told up, until a few months ago I would have told David he could speak for himself as to an expectation of remaining on earth, verse 15. Over and over again I read that God is sovereign over:
- my inspirations and energy, Philippians 2:13
- my purpose, Proverbs 19:21
- directing my steps, Jeremiah 10:23
So, what does this have to do with hope? Believing God is in control is where true rest comes in – it is not up to me, not even when I am at my best!
