John 7:30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come.
O powerful Savior, you displayed your power and control as you used the evil intentions of men to accomplish your purpose – to save the world from their sins in your time and in your way. Even in my life when the winds of misfortune rage and the waters of turmoil surge, you are in control allowing everything to happen in your time and your way, using it for your good purpose and mine. Help me recall this truth and apply it to my life when storms arise. That I trust in your power, your protection, and your providence. In your saving name I ask this. Amen.
