What a year! Hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, murder hornets, riots in the streets...
And, oh yes, a worldwide pandemic and the ensuing economic crash.
But yet through all these calamities, the Bible is clear that God is not shocked or dismayed by any of these things.
I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the Lord, who does all these things. - Isaiah 45:7 (ESV)
As hard as it may be to conceptualize that God is in control of what we sometimes see as madness, He is truly in control of good times (well-being) and bad times (calamity). His Word also tells us that, "for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose". (Romans 8:28, ESV).
So while it feels like the world is spinning out of control, the simple fact is that evil is real, but it is not ultimate. God is in control. He can and will redeem calamity through His Son. And we are given the opportunity to participate in the redemption of calamity.
