The first time our pastor used this phrase in worship, I thought it was an odd thing to be grateful for, but as I thought more about it, I realize it’s just a great reminder that I am a sinner and don’t have a clue what is best for me or for the world.
I looked this up online and this made the most sense to me: “It was first revealed to the Hebrews that God was not a part nor was He the whole of the created world. With the assistance of divine grace, they understood that creation was not necessary and that God’s existence is not dependant on His creation. In other words, God would not be any less God if He had left His creation uncreated.” ~MARIAN CATECHIST APOSTOLATE
Whew! What a relief. I can continue to bumble along and do the best I know how – not having the results of the whole world riding on me – I just have to trust and believe and do the best I can. I recently engraved some little stones that said “God’s got it!”. I just have to remember that and trust, not worry.
