Reblogging a post from a blogger I have recently begun to follow – it was so encouraging and I pray it blesses you too. These two paragraphs especially spoke to me:
Before we answer, we must acknowledge that we will never understand either one of these competing realities fully. Both are fully true, there is great evil, and there is a great God. And at the same time both are fully beyond our understanding. Questions like, “where does evil come from?” or “what is God’s specific purpose in this suffering?” may be unanswerable. We may never understand all of the reasons behind all of life’s pain.
But here’s what we can know: God will prevail over evil. God’s great faithfulness, his steadfast love and compassion, his new morning mercies, will never come to an end. They are unstoppable. Today’s great terrors cannot prevent tomorrow’s great mercy from our God. God’s life will always have the last word over death. God’s love will always cast out fear. God’s grace will always forgive our sins.
Here is a link to the remainder of the post:
“To live is Christ” means that now this mercy, this life, this hope, lives in us. Christ’s life in us is the great faithfulness of God. Christ’s indwelling love is the mercy we receive afresh each day.TLIC DAILY. DAY 94. APRIL 4: GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS.
