Lar,

One more thought before I call it a day for blogging. The Scriptures are clear, this I know. The hairs of our head are numbered. Not a sparrow falls to the ground apart from the will of our heavenly Father (Matther 10:29). This is ‘micromanagement.’

But what struck me is why? Why does God micromanage? I believe that the answer is simple. He is infinitely jealous to manifest the fullness of His infinite glory. And this infinite jealousy leads Him to do all that He must to fulfill that one, great, glorious, all-satisfying end. The Lord will not settle for a half-hearted manifestation of glory. He is jealous to manifest His glory fully in the whole of human and redemptive history. This requires micromanagement. And ‘micromanagement’ really is a bad term. Sovereignty is more biblical and better.

Isn’t it humbling that most evangelicals today need to learn from the pagan king Nebuchadnezzar? He said, “his dominion is an evelasting dominion, and his kingdom endures from generation to generation; all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and he does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the eath; and none can stay his hand or say to him, ‘What have you done?'” (Daniel 4:34-35)

Amen Neb (that’s what his friends called him). Let’s embrace it and respond with humble adoration for our great and glorious King! God’s micromanagement is beautiful, b/c the manifestation of His glory is beautiful! I love the ‘micromanagement’ (that is, sovereignty) of God! Let’s worship brother! Let’s adore our Sovereign King together.

Exalting in His ‘micromanagment’ with you,

Joe
