If Your Word wasn’t so perfectly balanced, we might look around at what seems like random, sad events, and wonder how You can really be in control. But just in the area of life and health, Bible heroes also suffered their measure of the effects of sin. We know of some who had lives cut very short, like Abel, Naboth, John the Baptist, and Stephen. Elisha and Paul suffered sickness and others experienced deep disappointments. Who on earth can figure it all out? Nobody. But You know exactly how every detail fits the puzzle. Indeed, there is no puzzle for You. All is one grand portrait of Your wisdom and grace. And in the end, we will eternally join our voices to sing Your praise. Amen.
