Tough Question 3: Do you think God has everything happen for a reason or is He in control of everything but somethings happen by coincidence?

"Hey thanks so much for the blog info, i have one question though. Do you think God has everything happen for a reason or he is in control of everything but something’s happen by coincidence ??? or do you think something different? It came up in my small group discussion the other day and a lot of people were going different ways with it."
Thanks
Dan Tobik

Thanks for the question Dan. This is a tough question with a simple answer.
Isaiah 45:6-7 says this, "That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord and there is no other, The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these."

God is the creator of all things. In fact He knew you before the creation of the world (Ephesians 1:3). In Luke 12:7 Jesus says that God knows the number of hairs on your head! God knows all, sees all, hears all because He is in control. God is sovereign, meaning that He is in control of ALL things.

Great question Dan...Keep them coming!!
