In God's Hands

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Ecclesiastes 9:1-6

Solomon continues to drive home the point that living solely for the here and now, rather than living with an eternal mindset, is foolishness. As we start into Ecclesiastes 9, Solomon confirms that God is in control and that He is most certainly aware of and over all things that take place on earth and in our lives. But he also reminds us that choosing to serve and follow God does not mean that God will set us aside to receive special treatment ("the same events happen to the righteous and the wicked (vs. 2)), and that our time on earth is brief, with all having an appointed time to die.

What encouragement or comfort do you draw from knowing that your "deeds are in the hands of God"? How does focusing on God and spending eternity with Him help you when you experience trials, pain, hardship, suffering sorrow? Tami

There's been a great deal of emotional pain and uncertainty in my life lately. The realitues of God's love and of eternity with Him are comforts and sources of hope.

Everything we are and do is in God's hands, and we know God brings good out of all of it for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose, Romans 8:28. Such a comfort in hard times!
