God’s Sovereignty of the Heavens and Earth

I recently (last Friday) wrote a short post on a young man I knew of that lost his girlfriend in a wreck when he was driving. The post was to show how the believer gets to enjoy the sovereignty of God during hard times. However I was extremely stunned when I received several Facebook messages and emails asking me what to do, “if you do not believe that God is in control at all times?” So I have decided to put a search together and just simply allow the Scriptures speak for themselves to answer exactly that what younger people, teens and college age groups struggle with, “Is God really in control of all things?” Over the next few days I will simply, from the Bible, show how God is soveregin over all things, speically on one area each post.
