It seems stuff hits you in torrents sometimes. It seems that over a relatively small period of time, a large number of events have either SURFACE or HAPPENED that have brought be back to the beginning. Sometimes that happens.
Things such as:
- Why would God allow this to happen?
- Why would God allow this to happen to me?
- Why would God allow this to happen to me at this time?
- Why would God allow this to happen to me at this time given other “stuff”?
The whole issue of God’s sovereignty is smacking me hard in the face. Sovereignty is basically the ability/power to make choices and … dare I say it … be answer-able to no one. But people (and I am one) being as we are wonder about those choices. I wanted to take this section of my musings to think about that some.
In my Bible reading today I came across Gen. 20. It is the story of how, once again, Abraham wanted to save his own hide out of fear that he would be thrown away to make room for someone else to take Sarah his wife. Abimelech is next in line now. However God spoke to him in a dream and told him not to touch her OR ELSE. God prevented sin to happen IN THIS CASE. However I can point you to any number of times that sin did happen and judgment was passed.
I wonder how/why God chooses to do what He does. The sovereignty of God … an incredible mystery. I wonder how many times fingers have pointed at God with accusations of being unfair …
