God Does What He Pleases

[God] does whatever pleases him.
                   —Psalm 115:3

“Isn’t everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God?” (1 Cor 4:7 MSG).

King David said: “[Everything] comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you” (1 Chr 29:16).

God’s own words: “The world is mine, and all that is in it” (Ps 50:12).

Thomas à Kempis personified God as saying: “That which I have given, I can take away; and I can restore it again when I please. When I give it, it is Mine; when I withdraw it, I have not taken anything that is thine.”

Yet, as a loving Father, he rescues his children. Thomas à Kempis again: “Come thou unto Me, whenever it is not well with thee. . . . I am at hand to repair all, not only entirely, but also abundantly and with increase.”

God not only restores, he upgrades.
