God intervenes in teh hearts of people so that they make decisions and carry out actions that accomplish His purpose for our lives. This is done in such a way that these people make their decisions and carry out their plans by their own free and voluntary choices. We must understand that if God is not sovereign in the decisions and actions of other people as they affect us, then there is a whole major area of our lives where we cannot trust God. We see in the Old Testament how God moved in the life of Cyrus King of Persia to allow the children of Israel to return to the city of Jerusalem and Israel to rebuild the nation. If we do not believe that the God of heaven is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we can be reminded that in 1948 this same God worked in the hearts of the world leaders to allow the Jewish people to return to the land that God has promised to Abraham, back in Genesis 12. We need to understand that as we live and move through our lives, that God is working in the lives and hearts of men and women to bring about His purposes and design, those people will answer to God for the decisions that they are making, of their own free will, but regardless of whether they are deemed as good or evil by the people around them, God is never surprised, or unsure of how He will navigate their choices. In a similar way we need to understand that God is as involved in our lives as He is in the cares and affairs of the world. We can trust Him with His plan, and rest in His sovereign working in our lives. Today, find your rest and peace in the sovereignty of God working out and through the circumstances of your life.
