God’s In Control

It is 100 percent true that God is good and that He’s in control. These facts, however, do not prevent bad things from happening. Though it’s within the Lord’s power to give everyone a perfect existence, that wouldn’t be in our best interest. Trials and suffering often drive people to the Father. And for those of us who are already His followers, God uses harsh circumstances to mature our faith and conform us to the image of His Son. To be made perfect and pleasing to our Father is indeed beneficial.

In His omniscience and wisdom, God will allow disaster and evil to touch our lives so we can grow from the experience. Growth, whether in compassion, trust, or knowledge, is good. If we could peek behind the scenes of our life, we’d see the Lord sovereignly working toward His ultimate purpose for us.

Romans 8:28 affirms this: “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” On occasion, we see immediate positive results from trials. But other times, we must wait months or years (or until we reach heaven) to fully understand what God was doing in those difficult circumstances.

Suffering and evil are inevitable parts of a fallen world. But we have assurance that God is in control of the universe, including the tiny corner we occupy. When He permits bad things to happen, we can be sure that He will continue to provide comfort and guidance as He shapes us into the people He wants us to be.

About Project Photizo

The word 'Phõtizõ' is of greek origin and it means to give out light, to shine or to illuminate. Project Photizo is all about directing people's attention to life's source of light. Not the Sun, but the one who is behind that phenomenon: The Creator and Sustainer of Life. He has proposed to us a way through which we can succesfully seek him and find him: through his Son Jesus. One who gave up his riches and comfort just for the sake of our redemption from the black pool of darkness in which we wallow in. He became the light in our darkness and made a way of exit from our pitiful situation. He offers you a share of this light. We at Project Photizo are bearers of this wonderful light and we want to share it with you. Will you make use of that exit or will you remain were you are? Will you hand him that candle so he could light it up or do you wish to remain in your darkness?
