Jeremiah 51 Who is this God who is master over all? The Lord of Hosts is His Name. Jeremiah reminds us that God is the author of creation. God is God, and there is none beside Him. He creates; He designs. He is the master over all, stop and praise Him.
Many today in Afghanistan and Haiti are struggling to make sense of all carnage and devastation. The photographers reveal to us what it looks like, but we have not experienced any of this, and in this time frame, we seek to try to make sense of it all. Into this rises Daniel from the grave to remind us that as believers, no matter what circumstance is before us, we can be faithful because we know the God of the universe, and nothing is unknown to Him. “Ah Lord GOD! Behold, … nothing is too difficult for You…O great and powerful God, whose name is the LORD Almighty,” [Jer 32:17-18] “By his power made the earth. By his wisdom, he is the one who fixed the world in place; by his understanding, he spread out the heaven and all idolaters will prove to be stupid and ignorant.” [Jer 51:17-19]
When you feel adrift and can’t make heads or tails of what is going on in the world, know this truth: God is sovereign, He is both Creator and Sustainer and He is in control of all that is happening. We can trust Him.
