Is God a micro-manager?

When we hear that God has a plan, we may picture God sitting with something like a 3-D model of the world or at a computer filled with Sims, actively picking up and moving each and every piece, micromanaging the whole creation.  Or maybe with a giant wall calendar with everything already written in- like the day each person will die or moving the pieces to prevent or allow something to happen.  God’s plan is actually a much bigger picture than any of that.  When God says He has a plan, it is a plan of repentance, redemption, resurrection and restoration.  And it happens over and over and over again in each of our lives.  And it will keep happening- sometimes we might even notice. – Pastor Trudy Stoffel
