God controls and allows every detail of our lives; nothing happens without His knowledge and approval. Every day, little changes in our schedule or small irritations occur, and we can choose to let these obstacles upset us, or we can rest in the knowledge that God lovingly ordained them as small irritants to help us look to and rely on Him. For example, we can complain about the frustrating traffic jam that is keeping us from getting somewhere in our timing, or we can remember that God knows about our timelines and view the time we have sitting in traffic as an opportunity to pray. We can complain or we can rejoice.
Allow the knowledge that you are continually “surrounded by God’s unfailing love” to take you from “woes” to Worship! “Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing!”
