Was God Surprised?

Why am I surprised by life events? Good things happen, bad things happen. I look at these events with surprise, does God? No. There are no lucky or unlucky events in my life. God has everything under control. I ask, "Why does this have to happen to me?" God says, "It's all part of my plan for you, child." I say, "If I had left for work one minute sooner, I may have been involved in that accident." God says, "I knew that, so I placed events into your morning to make you leave a few minutes later." My dad used to say, "We're Christians, we don't do luck." He was right!

Psalm 139:16-18 "You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered. I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!"
