A Month of Thankfulness: Day Four

Like so very many others, today I am thankful for God's sovereignty. Andy and I just came back from voting. We prayerfully made our choices at the polling station but we are so grateful that the One who really rules our country never changes. He is not subject to re-election every four years. He does not campaign for our votes. He does not depend on the whims of man for His sovereignty over all. And no matter what happens tonight when the ballots are counted, He will reign over us as He always has, using the men He has chosen to place in earthly authority over us for His sovereign purposes in our lives.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Rebecca is collecting our thankful thoughts each day of this month at Rebecca Writes. Go see what others are thankful for and perhaps share a thankful thought of your own.

What a comfort to know that the Lord does all things well.

Yes, He is sovereign and He also moves the hands and minds of the rulers.
