Max Lucado – God Has a Higher Purpose


Listen to Today’s Devotion

No moment, event, or detail falls outside of God’s supervision.  God is the one who “causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:45).  He isn’t making up this plan as he goes along.  Daniel 5:21 says, “The most High God rules the kingdom of men, and sets over it whom he will.”

So if God is in charge, why does he permit challenges to come our way?  Wouldn’t an almighty God prevent them?  Not if they serve his higher purpose!   The ultimate example is the death of Christ on the cross.  Everyone thought the life of Jesus was over.  Jesus was dead and buried, but God raised him from the dead.  God took the crucifixion of Friday and turned it into the celebration of Sunday.  Can he not do a reversal for you?
