God's Sovereignty - Rick Davis Style
I was struck last night (at our event "Marriage: Unplugged") by the number of times Rick, our Featured Mobilizer this month for missions, encouraged us to "let God be God." Granted -- God isn't waiting on our permission or approval (duh!)...but it's just our human way of saying, "Be okay with the fact that God is beyond us!" Rick and Nikky came face to face with this on several occassions (infertility, moving to Laos, & her mother, to name a few) and it was encouraging to hear him simply tell of his unwavering trust in a Sovereign God! To me, Rick really portrays what it means to simply trust, much like what God (through Isaiah) was commanding Ahaz to do in Is. 7 -- have faith!
