God's got it...

As I was getting ready this morning and listening to the news, I once again heard of tragic events.  This time it was innocent patrons at a mall in Nairobi, Kenya being held hostage.  I believe the number of deaths were at 69 when I left the house.  Such violence often begs the questions from many...where is God or why doesn't God do something?

There is no doubt that events like this are tragic and obviously no country is free from such events, we had 12 loose their lives just last week at the Naval yard.  But don't even think that God doesn't know what is going on or that God is not doing something. Psalm 11:4-6 states "The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. he observes everyone on earth: his eyes examine them.  The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion.  On the wicked he wil rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot."

God sees, and knows, all that is transpiring on this earth.  We must trust that He's got this.  Do all we can to make our way of life safe for our children and our families, but in the end...God's got this.  Furthermore, if God is able to use situations like those mentioned above, just imagine how he can use our day to day ups and downs...God's got those situations too!! Trust that He will work in all things for the good of those who love him.

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
