Our hope for the future
1. God knows you completely and loves you absolutely. (1-4, 13-16)
God understands you because He knew all about you before you were even born.
God recognizes and honors the life of the unborn.
2. God is with you always and takes care of you. (7-10)
God watches our every move, not as our watchdog, but as our caretaker.
3. God is in control of the details of your life. (16)
The Bible makes it clear that we do have a free will, and we will be held responsible for the decisions we make.
At the same time, God is in control of our lives, and nothing happens that is beyond His control.
“He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 1:5)
He predestined us to be conformed to the likeness of His Son. (Romans 8:29)
Proverbs 16:4; Romans 8:28 – God is in control, but that doesn't make us robots.
