Can any happening, however horrible, ever be outside God’s control and plan? As I thought deeply about this recently, I decided the answer is: “No!”
Scripture promises “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. ” (Romans 8.28 NLT)
Note that God is working together for good in everything (including even the most horrible things.)
Notice also that God is working out his purpose. This means that nothing is accidental or without meaning. God is carrying out his plan for the world, in spite of sin, sorrow and death.
Coffee/tea thought: Jesus’ Death and Resurrection reveal God’s love and working in all things for our ultimate good. Sometimes these truths ring with joy when we hear them. At other times we struggle to walk by faith not by sight. Either way, may I allow God’s love and peace to fill me today.
