Trust God

I was speaking with an atheist friend of mine yesterday about some concerns I have with things going on in my life. Interestingly, his response to me was, “Trust God.”

Even though he doesn’t believe in God, he knows that I do. And his belief is that what I think of as God is some sort of cosmic force that he refers to as “the universe.” Regardless, it was a good reminder that whatever is going on in my life or in the world, I need to trust that God is in control and that He is working for my good. And I need to remember that I make a lousy god, so I should stop trying to do God’s job for Him.

It was just funny that this reminder came from someone who doesn’t believe in God, or at least thinks that God is “the universe”, but sometimes that’s just how God works. I wonder if He ever gets a chuckle out of using an atheist to accomplish His purposes…
