Lord, You are awesome and holy! You are!

“…Lord, You are awesome and holy! You are! …”
If God is perfect and holy in all of His ways, what does that mean when bad things happen to us? How can a good and perfect God Who is perfect in His love allow bad things to happen to good people? Sin sees to it that the world is fallen. God’s remedy is Jesus. The lies of the enemy see to it that confusion seems to rule the day. God’s remedy is the Truth of His Word – Jesus. The word ‘awesome’ literally means impressive or overwhelming to the point of deep admiration or fear. The awesome thing about God’s holiness is that even in spite of bad things happening due to sin, the lies of the enemy, and our own willful disobedience, God is able – in His holiness – to take even our greatest failures and make something beautiful from them. He is able to put down the lies of the enemy and set us on the path of truth. He is able to take what Satan meant for evil and use it for GOOD in our lives! That is AWESOME!
Think of areas of your life where evil seems to be triumphing over good. Ask the Holy Spirit to allow you to see a glimpse of what the perfect holy God is up to in these areas…then take time to rejoice in God’s goodness!
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.
Romans 8:28 KJV
