The Presumption of Faith
A.W. Tozer best describes the tension of sovereignty and free will as an ocean liner from New York City to London. The course is set and destination determined (sovereignty), but the people on board are free to do as they please (free will). That freedom gives the illusion of control, but God has ordained the cruise liner’s port and destination. Let us not let the painful decision of a few passengers derail us from the ordained and unalterable path of our ship. Today we look at the life of Joseph (Genesis 37-50) to help us understand “the presumption of faith” which is God is in control and He knows what He is doing, even though I do not. Perhaps faith’s greatest struggle is holding onto this truth. Let’s see how Joseph did it.
