In a world filled with evil it is sometimes difficult to believe that God is in control. But God is always sovereignly in control. He is God almighty: the absolute ruler over everything; the supreme power over the whole universe.
Events in life are not random as the atheist believes. Nothing or no one can thwart God’s choices and His control. He does whatever He pleases (Psalm 115:3). He works all things after the counsel of His will (Ephesians 1:11). He rules over the fall of the nations, the fall of the rain, the fall of the sparrow.
