I have a few devotionals going at any given time, and most of them now are focused on events leading up to and including the crucifixion, and resurrection of Jesus.
All these things – indeed, all things since the beginning of human history – have been intended by God for us and for His glory. He does / He allows these things out of His great love for us.
In studying the events leading up to the crucifixion, we can see that there were a great many injustices to Jesus, much tidings of unfair treatment, of men twisting facts and reality to achieve their own ends. We cringe at injustice, we cry out, and we are grieved.
I thought this morning on those unjust events, and brought it to present day. Humans have not improved in the justice and righteous department at any time in history. God allowed the injustices to Jesus for us, because He loves us.
The same is true today. God allows injustices because He loves us.
At the time, no one, including those who loved Jesus, could see why these things had to happen. No one could see The Big Plan. No one had God’s perspective.
We still don’t.
I cannot begin to put words to the immeasurable, infinite peace I have in my heart, my mind, my soul, in knowing that God’s got this: He is in control, He’s perfect, and He loves me.
I pray you, too, know His Peace.
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Know Him. Know His Word. Obey Him.
