Pilate therefore said to him, “Aren’t you speaking to me? Don’t you know that I have power to release you, and have power to crucify you?” Jesus answered, “You would have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above. – John 19, WEB
There are times when we may feel overwhelmed by the things happening around us. We feel helpless as things become out of our control. We do our very best, but things still don’t seem to work out the way they should.
Times like that, don’t be disheartened. For though we may not see now why such things happen or why God has allowed it so, God knows what He is doing and He is still in control of everything.
Power does not rest upon man. It comes from God! Therefore God gives and God takes away. If He ever allows certain things to happen, it is only to bring about a greater good.
One day we shall see. But today, we must trust. We trust though we cannot see. All we can be certain of is that God reigns. He is Lord of heaven and earth, and He is a Just and Merciful God.
“Some of us believe that God is almighty, and can do everything; and that he is all wise, and may do everything; but that he is all love, and will do everything— there we draw back.” – Julian of Norwich
