Revelations about God

  • God is present and active in the midst of conflict and rivalry.
  • God is giver and withholder of life
  • God uses unexpected vessels to accomplish His will
  • God is benevolent and merciful - He sees our circumstances and hears our prayers

Gospel Implications

  • Your worth is not determined by the love of others - but by your relationship with God.
  • Note the sanctify of life principle: God opens wombs and closes wombs.
  • Your circumstances are never outside of God’s concern or God’s reach.
