Impossible

I’ve been around the church my whole life. Maybe you have, too. Recently, my pastor shared something from stage that resonated with me like never before: God redeems what he allows. I can’t stop thinking about it.

What does that mean?

It means that God can work through your suffering to accomplish His purposes in your life. Ultimately, God is in control. He allows the good and bad things in life, and we can trust Him to work all things together for good in the lives of those who love Him.

Even in the midst of a storm like Dorian, God is in control. Yes, God is sovereign. He does what he wants. He allows chaos and He is glorified through it. He redeems everything.

1 Corinthians 13:12 says, “For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”

God is faithful. He can use all circumstances for His glory. No matter what.
