As you look at the world and its sin and evil, don’t conclude or think God doesn’t care about what’s going on. Or that He isn’t capable of dealing with it or in control. God does care, and He is capable of doing whatever He wants—but in His timing. Hear what God told Moses with regard to the Israelites when they were held captive in Egypt. God proclaimed:
- I have seen the misery of my people in Egypt…
- I am concerned about their suffering.
- So I have come down to rescue them…
- I am sending you to Pharaoh (Exodus 3:7-10).
God sees. God cares. And God acts.
Even when it may not seem like it, God is always in control. Your response should be to willingly submit to His authority. Trust God…and rest in His care.
