God is in Control

snow-day-025God brought snow to Payson this morning.   As I looked out at the white, I thought of the “global warming” fiasco being pushed by Al Gore.  As long as God controls the thermostat there is no reason for us to worry.  Colossians 1:16-17 says, “For by him all things were created:  things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities;  all things were created by him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”  As long as the Lord holds all things together who are we to worry?  God bless this nation!

    Dell,

    Great post. Found your blog through Todd Deaver’s and Matt Clifton’s respective blogs. What a comfort to know that God is indeed in control, even when things seem their worst.

    But – much like the internet – global warming was around before Al Gore. Just because God is in control, however, doesn’t mean we can go on damaging our planet without concern for the consequences.

    Remember, God made man – through Adam – stewards of what He had created. And if the old hymn is true (“This World is Not My Home”), how does that make us look for harming the environment that God gave us to protect and manage? What would you think of a housesitter (steward)who ran up your phone bill astronomically, pawned your tv, cut up your linens for an art project, broke your grandmother’s heirloom china and then shrugged and said, ‘Oh, sorry, but you can just buy a new one, right? Glad I don’t have to pay the bills!’

    I realize that’s probably not what you had in mind with this post, but that is the mentality of so many – even Christians – who could care less about caring for what’s been entrusted to us. I’m not a tree-huggin’ environmental whacko; just a Christian who’s concerned about taking care of what God gave us.

    Sorry, kind of got off on a rant there, when I was just meaning to compliment you on your blog. Keep up the good work, brother.
