God's sovereignty in all things
Some things in life that seem like a problem are actually God's way of averting calamity. I was leaving for work yesterday and discovered that my gas water heater had failed and water was leaking into my garage. The pilot light was still lit, which meant the hot water heater was still still being heated despite the lack of water in it. Hot water heaters can be dangerous in this condition and I thank God that it failed while I was home to see it and shut the gas off to it. The plumber was able to replace it withing just a few hours, thank the Lord. This is just one small example of how our sovereign God prevents calamity in our lives. Was it inconvenient and expensive to replace? Yes! Was a potential calamity averted? Yes!!! We are planning to travel out of state in a couple weeks and I thank the Lord that it happened now and not then. Thank you Jesus for blessing me so much!!!! Let's all give God credit where credit is due when He graciously orchestrates events in our lives that spare us real trouble!! Thank you Jesus!!!

That is such an awesome testimony! We have had similar events, that could have been catastrophes had the timing been different! Praise God!! He is so good to us!
