Everyone has a story.

 

When I wrote Genesage a Christian Fiction Series Novel, I presented the idea's I felt were true, but I doubted others. I thought they would accept it better if I showed HOW a truth of fact played out, then state a Theological Treatise. The Theo part I would love personally but the good was fun to do and it better revealed who many things we suppose or thing we know, might be close, but not the complete picture.

Like You. I don't know you. I know one day we will meet, but I still won't know you. It's enough for me that God knows you and if accepted you; I have to too. How I can get to know you is when you tell me about yourself and how you lived your life and deal with things as you lived them. The older you get, the easier it is to be real about your life. 

Still, I will only know as much about you as you tell me and I see how you are with me and others. As I see you in action, as I see you in play, as I see when you are stressed, as I see you in crisis, as I see you with God or in church. The more times I see you in those settings the better idea I get of who you are.

You are the main character in your own story.

Your life is played out for everyone to see and everyone is watching you as some point in time and some even want to get to know you.

Why?

Everyone has a Story.

No two stories are alike. As different as people are so too is your story. You might tell me a story about yourself or you might tell me the story you are, but everyone has a story and wether they know it or not, they are telling that story everyday they are alive.

Whats Your Story?

TheoQ&A: Divine Sovereignty (The Faithfulness of God) -Relevant Theology

RELEVANT THEOLOGY

Divine Sovereignty and

The Faithfulness of God

Knowing that God is completely sovereign over all of life can only give us comfort and peace if we also understand the totality of His nature—all His attributes and how they work together to make Him who He is and what that means in practical terms. What kind of marriage or friendship would you have if you only knew one thing about the other person? If all you knew about your husband is that he is athletic, that wouldn’t make much of a marriage, would it? No, you have to also know the rest of his character traits.

If all we know about God is that He loves us and has a wonderful plan for our lives, how can we be sure His love will last unless we also know He is infinite and that His promises are irrevocable (Romans 11:29)? How can we be sure that His plan really a is wonderful unless we know of His goodness and kindness? How do we know that the plan will come to pass unless we know that He is faithful and powerful enough to bring it to pass? How do we even know our salvation is secure unless we understand His grace, His mercy and His divine will?

So the impact of divine sovereignty on our lives is determined, in part, by our understanding of God’s other attributes. One of God’s attributes, His faithfulness, has an enormous impact on how we perceive His sovereignty as it affects us. The Bible is replete with assurances of God’s faithfulness (Psalm 100:5119:90138:8Isaiah 25:12 Timothy 2:131 Corinthians 10:13Hebrews 10:23). It’s one thing to know what the Bible says about God’s faithfulness to fulfill His promises, but it’s another to act upon and live according to that knowledge.

When my husband says he’ll be home at six o’clock, I make dinner for six because I know he does what he says he will do. If he doesn’t show up at six, I don’t throw up my hands and say, “That’s it! It’s over! I can’t trust him! He doesn’t love me anymore!” And I certainly don’t come to the conclusion that he is unfaithful. I know I can trust him and I know he loves me and I know he’s faithful. There’s just something about the situation I don’t know—he had a flat, he stopped at the store, he lost his watch, whatever. But I don’t come to wrong conclusions about him, his motives, his love and care for me or his faithfulness and trustworthiness. Why? Because after 35 years of marriage, I’ve been with him long enough to really know him. I’ve seen him in action.

But when God says He works all things together for good (Romans 8:28), even cancer, unemployment, rejection and heartache, do we believe Him? When He says no trial will be beyond our ability to bear it and He will provide a way out (1 Corinthians 10:13), do we believe that? Or do we try to dig out from under it in our own strength and power? It all comes down to this—do we know Him well enough to trust Him?

Jesus told Peter in John 13:7 "What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand." Can we have enough confidence in God to wait on Him? We can if we know Him well enough to believe He is faithful. But we can’t know Him that well in one hour a week in church or if we spend only a few minutes a day with Him, despite the claims of a recent book 7 Minutes with God: Daily Devotions for a Deeper Relationship.” Imagine telling your husband, “Honey, we have to work on deepening our relationship, so I’m going to carve out 7 minutes for you every day.” Would that lead to depth of understanding of your spouse? Of course not. How, then, can we possibly expect an intimate knowledge of God if we don’t spend time with Him—time speaking to Him in prayer and time hearing from Him through His Word?

If all you have for God is seven minutes a day, you’re going to hate it in heaven. Heaven is an eternity with God. So let’s seek to know God intimately and fully by drinking deeply of His Word and letting it fill our minds and hearts. Then the sure and certain knowledge of His sovereignty, His faithfulness and all His other attributes will bring us the peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7).
