Sovereign God - by Norman P. Grubb
One of the great lessons we learn in our union life search is that God means everything! It keeps me from being judgmental of people. I can say, “Well, God means that. That’s God’s purpose”...whether it is a negative purpose or a positive purpose. It is a wonderful thing when we begin to say, “God meant that.” It may be that if he is an unsaved person, God meant it so that the arrows of conviction of sin and corruption would sink more deeply in. For instance, something might cause a man to become frightened, yet we can see that it was exactly what that man needed and that God has some higher and greater purposes through that experience.
