Where was God when…? Why did God allow…? What was God doing…? These are natural questions in the face of hardship or tragedy. None of them are new. People have been asking them from the beginning of time. Most of the time there are no easy or emotionally satisfying answers. Yet one thing is undeniable even in the midst of difficulties – God is completely and totally sovereign.
Yes, that raises even more questions. But in the midst of asking them, we must not sacrifice the beautiful truth that God is sovereign over everything. To do so takes us to a place much worse than our circumstances. It forces us to wrestle with this question: If God isn’t sovereign over everything, how do we know we can we trust him with anything? Thankfully, God is sovereign over everything. That’s why we can face anything and trust him with everything.
