Isaiah 26:3-6 God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you. So trust the LORD always, because in the LORD you have a place of safety forever. But he will destroy the proud city and punish those who live there. He will throw that high city down to the ground. It will fall into the dust. Then poor and humble people will walk on those ruins.

One of the great arguments against the existence of an all-powerful, all-loving God is all the suffering that goes on in this world. So clearly, either God doesn’t love us enough to stop it, or He isn’t able to.

On the surface of it, that sounds like the perfect polemic against any notion of such a God. How could a God of love allow all this suffering? And worse still, how could this alleged God of love one day judge some of us into the fiery eternity of hell?

But look around at all the evil in this world, occasioned by the free will that God’s given each one of us. And all of a sudden, in the midst of that, the reality of God’s extreme love in His power and judgement all of a sudden makes sense.

Isaiah 26:3-6 God, you give true peace to people who depend on you, to those who trust in you. So trust the LORD always, because in the LORD you have a place of safety forever. But he will destroy the proud city and punish those who live there. He will throw that high city down to the ground. It will fall into the dust. Then poor and humble people will walk on those ruins.

If God truly is God, then that makes a lot of sense. He’s there to give peace to those who trust Him, safety to those who depend on Him. And yet He’ll bring destruction and punishment upon the proud, upon those who oppress the poor. He’ll turn all their great works to rubble so that the poor and humble can tread them into the ground.

The God of love. The God of justice. All-loving. All-powerful.

That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.
