Our God reigns. Many believers have no concept of this. They fully believe that our God saved, but not in the present or future tense. They are willing to believe that he was benevolent at one time to them, but not that he is all powerful and benevolent now. They have made themselves the focus of the story. The Bible is very clear that we are not. Men cannot judge the ins and outs of managing justice and righteousness. Anyone who tries will fail miserably again and again. But God has shown himself, though he never needed to, to be worthy of praise. His wisdom is evident and his mercies endless. Therefore when we encounter trials of every kind, it would behoove us to remember who God has been and is, and project who he will be. Then, our actions will make sense and we will be able to make sense of all the difficult things that convolute the limited view of a finite and feelings based creature as he stands in the face of the limitless variables of our mortal existence. Remember God.

MY NAME IS JOSH MCGARY. First, I am a Pastor of a small church in Portland, Oregon named Aletheia Bible Fellowship. We call it ABF. I have been a pastor there for the better part of 20 years. I am very eclectic. What I love, I love loudly and immersively. I have notable collections of toys, funko pops, and vinyl. I also infamously love pop culture, comic books, technology, the arts, psychology and philosophy. https://sleek.bio/joshmcgary View more posts
