We Adore You for Being in Control of Everything!

Over the last several weeks, Kevin and I have been facilitating a small group Bible Study by Crown Financial Studies. God has blessed our group with caring, compassionate individuals. (Hi! Mike & Cindy, Terry & Twana, Collin & Shannon, and Jim & Carol).

This Bible study is designed primarily to learn how God is the owner of everything and that we are his stewards. But, besides learning these very important lessons, we, as a group, are supporting and praying for one another in good times and in bad.

Each week we learn a Bible verse and then have to recite it to the class. Here's last week's verse: (I'm trying to type it from memory)

"Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your Kingdom. We adore you as being in control of everything. Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the ruler of all mankind. Your hand controls power and might, and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength." I Chronicles 29:11-12

This verse has been helpful to each of us in one way or another. What a comfort God's Word can be when we meditate on it and trust in it!

May we all remember to "adore Him as being in control of everything." Ahh, what a comfort......
