Coram Deo: Knowing that God sovereignly determines even “random” events should give us pause. The unexpected flat tire that delays us on the way to work is not unexpected from God’s perspective. Who knows? Perhaps God ordained the flat tire so that we would miss getting into a wreck that we would not have missed had we left earlier. Whatever the reason, we can thank God in the midst of unplanned events because we know He has a good purpose for them.
