God’s plans (2 Samuel 17)

As I read this passage, verse 14 struck me.

For the Lord had determined to frustrate the good advice of Ahithophel in order to bring disaster on Absalom.

Sometimes we look at the evil in the world and wonder if God is really in control. We see the earthquakes, the floods, the evil that people do, and think, “Why doesn’t God do something?”

But God is not just sitting in heaven fretting about what’s going on here on earth. He has a plan, even if we can’t see it. And in his time, he will move. The question is will we trust him until he does?

Jesus said this,

“And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:7-8)
