Previously: blessed be the name of the Lord
We have to have it settled in our hearts, that God is God, He is King and Ruler, may His will be done on earth as it is heaven; that He is good, faithful and merciful, abounding in lovingkindness, and all His judgments are just. He is the benevolent Sovereign of the universe. Tragic and evil things happen every day. How can God witness the suffering of the innocent? I don’t believe He could, unless He had perfect confidence in His ability to bind up the brokenhearted and heal all wounds. Unless He had perfect confidence in His just justice, which will not let the wicked go with impunity. In other words, we have to accept what the Scripture says about Him, as true. Then we can find peace in our own hearts and allow His compassion for suffering to work through us to find a way to alleviate it.
