The Lord runs the universe, sustaining all lives. Nothing can happen without his permission. Even sins provide the chance for us to become victorious over them. Jesus has completed his work of salvation by dying on the cross for us. He is still doing wonders today ~ converting us, healing us, warning us, giving us joy... God shall always prevail and there is nothing you can do about it. The fact that the world is in such a bad shape is because we mess it up sinning. The wise should start believing and following the Lord right now. To do otherwise is to ignore the inevitable reality.
