God has never lost control of His universe, even all the way back in the Garden of Eden. Nothing there took Him by surprise. It all worked together for His purpose. God did not start playing “catch-up” with man’s rebellion. God was always in the lead. After all, it was God Himself Who planted a garden with two trees: one tree of life, and the other tree of good and evil. Good and evil come from the same exact tree! They both were of divine origin!
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things (Isaiah 45:7).
God created good and evil as a part of His divine plan. Evil did not sneak into His creation; rather, He put it there – right “in the middle” (Genesis 2:9). It was a part of the core of His plan to be “All in all” ( I Corinthians 15:28).
We who know and love God are aware that He is even working evil for good.
For us, who love God, who are the called according to His purpose, there is an awareness that He is working all together for good (Romans 8:28).
