Paths of Planets to the Movement of Molecules

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.”
Genesis 1:14

“If there is one single molecule in this universe running around loose, totally free of God’s sovereignty, then we have no guarantee that a single promise of God will ever be fulfilled.”
― R.C. Sproul, Chosen By God: Know God’s Perfect Plan for His Glory and His Children

I believe in a God who set into motion the Paths of the Planets and the Movement of Molecules.  I also believe in a God who also is in control of both the very big and the very small.  I find it easy to trust that God can be in control of these things that I can’t actually see, alters or manipulate myself.

So why, if I can trust that God is in control of both the very big and the very small, do I have trouble trusting Him with the great middle in between?

Why do I have trouble trusting God when His word says,

28 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

Why do I have trouble trusting that God is doing what is best for me when Chelsea and I sit down with her oncologist and he tells us that the cancer is once again spreading and the best course of action will most likely change her personality once she goes through the treatment and will turn her brain to mush somewhere between 5 and 10 years from now…?



Because I love my wife and I can’t imagine life without her.



So what am I to do now?



Today I am going to do my best to follow the words of my Savior,

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34

I am going to follow the wisdom found in the Old Testament when the Teacher looked at life and realized that everything was temporary,

13 Now all has been heard;
    here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
    for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
    including every hidden thing,
    whether it is good or evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
