The Healing Shock: All things work together for the Good

No Comments

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Underline all: not “some”.
Underscore All not “most”.
Understand All not “certain”.

The strength of God can be approximated by the size of the risk God has taken with the human project.

When tragedy strikes those who don’t know God are only shocked by the tragedy and the loss: but as Christians what should also shock us even more profoundly and therapeutically is the reality of a God so powerful and loving He Has confidence in His unfailing love and power to heal, restore and ultimately to settle all the questions and queries.

As we mourn with hope: the cry must not just be “Why God? But more importantly it should be: “God how Big must you be to have calculated that even this harrowing tragedy can and will ultimately work for the good in your grand and divine scheme of things”

God reigns and ultimately nothing is lost from Him.
