I don’t always think of the Lord being in charge in other countries as well as ours. He is Lord of ALL – the earth, the universe – EVERYTHING. The country of Edom has mistreated the Israelites and Judah. The Lord speaks against them and prepares to take them out. Check this out….13 You have not stopped your proud talk against me. I have heard you. 14 This is what the Lord God says: All the earth will be happy when I make you an empty ruin. 15 You were happy when the land of Israel was ruined, but I will do the same thing to you. Mount Seir and all Edom, you will become an empty ruin. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’ (Ezekiel 35:13-15 NCV)
I want to keep in mind today that the Lord is over the smallest detail of my life. He hears how I talk about others and He hears how others talk about me. He notices my humble spirit. He wants my worship and praise of Him throughout my day. I want to watch carefully how I handle my frustration and anger with others. He is the Lord of All and He’s clearly in charge of everything!
