Sunday's readings assert the sovereignty of God over all human endeavor. In Exodus (Track 1), God promises to be present as Moses continues to lead God’s people. In Isaiah (Track 2), the prophet proclaims that God directs the affairs even of Israel’s adversaries, causing them to act on God’s behalf. Paul greets the Thessalonians with the assurance that God has chosen them for great works of faith. In the gospel, Jesus deflects the Pharisees’ malice by redirecting their thoughts to God’s sovereignty.
