God is in control


Above the floodwaters is God's throne
from which His power flows,
from which he rules the world.
Psalm 29:10

We woke up this morning to read about a partial U.S. Government shutdown. We hear various experts and their predictions of economic crises ahead...But as believers, we know God is still in control.

Paul's prayer for us in Ephesians 1:16-21.

I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.

Now He is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else
—not only in this world but also 
in the world to come.

Dear Karen,
My friend and I just prayed these exact same scripture a few hours ago. We must wait this out as we both know something else is really happening. Your a precious sister!
Blessings, Roxy
