God: Are You Still There?
Nov 04, 2008
"Moreover we know that to those who love God, who are called according to his plan, everything that happens fits into a pattern for good." Romans 8:28 (JBPhillips Version)
In the light of the grave economic difficulty we are experiencing: the high cost of fuel, the evaporation of one's savings, and natural disasters; through it all we believe that the eternal, loving, sovereign hand of God is active and nothing catches him by surprise. He is always at work bringing about his good will. Therefore, when others become depressed, distressed and totally disappointed; we must remind ourselves that scripture explicitly teaches that our God can turn our pain into provision and our tragedy into triumph. His promises are true and He will do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. Let us then be absolutely strong during these difficult times. RB
