I have asked myself hundreds of times why God sometimes allows evil to flourish – and I don’t have the full answer. Evil is real, however, and we ignore it at our peril. Evil is so real that it cost God’s Son His life.
But I do know this: Even in life’s darkest hours, “God is our refuge and our strength.” Not money, not military might, not diplomacy, not human cleverness – but God. As you reflect on what happened on that September 11, is God your refuge and strength? He can be, as you open your heart and life to Jesus Christ.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
