The Lord has commanded it (Lamentations 3:37)

"Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it?" - Lamentations 3:37

This is a verse about the sovereignty of God.

Think about just how cool it is that the Lord knows everything that will come to pass and has a plan for it. Whatever pain may come today, God has a plan for tomorrow.

I just finished watching the newest Batman (The Dark Knight) and I was shocked at just how depressing of a movie it is. I feel like it's supposed to be a movie about the hope a hero provides but instead is a movie about a city so evil it's depressing (not to mention the sun never shines).

This may be closer to the truth than we realize, we're surrounded by a shocking amount of evil with a pretty face. However our God is the king of this earth now. He is in control and powerful enough to keep things in check.

The evil which exists today will not be around forever. The Lord wins in the end. And what comes to pass between now and then will fulfill His plan.

He has commanded it.
