The Law of Circularity – Peace in the Middle of Life’s Greatest Trials, Part 1

Man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward (Job 5:7).

Life is hard. It is hard by design. It is hard by the design of God.

Living the divine-life is about trusting God’s hand in all that we experience – in the “good” as well as in the “bad.” It is about the full confidence of His Godhood and His abundant love for us.

In the next few days we will think of a few foundational principles from the Scriptures that lead our hearts to peace in the middle of life’s greatest trials.

First, there is the law of circularity from Romans 11:36:

Out of Him and through Him and for Him is all: to Him be the glory for the eons! Amen! (Concordant Literal Translation)

Here is the simple, glorious truth of this verse in a nutshell:

All is out of God.
All is through God.
All is for God.

The knowledge that all is out of God, that all is through God, and that all is for God can settle the weary heart and bring peace to the troubled mind. Father is in control. Rest in that.
