Understand that Christ's Lordship means that He rules all of His creation absolutely without exception; that nothing--NOTHING--happens outside His control. Whatever crosses your path or enters your mind does so with His full knowledge and permission and, therefore, according to His purpose. Our responsibility, then, is to ask Him for wisdom in discerning what to do in every situation. New awareness may be correctional or instructional for me alone, or it may be the means by which I can bless others, offering comfort and encouragement in love, just as I have received. There is no pattern on God's part and there must be no presumptuousness on mine. He is LORD!
