LifeLink Devotions

Wednesday, March 8, 2023

There is so much more we could teach about the ministry of the Holy Spirit, but that is not our intention for this series of devotionals. We are set on a course to study the life of Joseph from the book of Genesis. One of the most important lessons we can learn from his life is the sovereignty of God. No matter what man intends, God’s purpose will be accomplished, and God is always – ALWAYS – in control of all things.

Genesis 50:20 “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.”

At the end of Joseph’s story he makes this declaration – “What you intended for harm God intended for good.” I remember chatting with a young man who was learning that lesson. He suggested that I listen to a Chris Tomlin worship song called “Sovereign.” Here are the lyrics:

Sovereign in the mountain air, Sovereign on the ocean floor, With me in the calm, With me in the storm.

Sovereign in my greatest joy, Sovereign in my deepest cry, With me in the dark, With me at the dawn.

In your everlasting arms, All the pieces of my life, From beginning to the end, I can trust you.

In your never failing love, You work everything for good, God whatever comes my way
I will trust you

All my hopes, All I need, Held in your hands.

All my life, All of me, Held in your hands.

All my fears, All my dreams, Held in your hands.

God whatever comes my way, I will trust you.

What a statement of faith for all of us to be able to make – “God, whatever comes my way, I will trust you.”

Meditate on the truth of God’s sovereignty today until it overwhelms you and conquers your fears and doubts.
