The Same God

by

The same God who led Israel out of Egypt led them into Egypt.
The same God who empowered the armies to crush the inhabitants of Cannan also empowered foreign armies to crush the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
The same God who made the earth and called it good also allowed it to be cursed.
The same God who raised up Nebuchandezzar as great king also humiliated him as a beast.
The same God who showed justice at the cross also showed mercy at the cross.
The same God….

And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.”
Job 1:21
