Text message from a young lady in recovery: “Why does satan continue to fight a war with God he has already lost?”
Me: “Because he is stubborn and willful……just like us.”
God is sovereign. His will is ultimately going to be done. Yet we, like satan, continue to think we can negotiate with, rebel against, or ignore God. How is that any different than what satan has always done? God is patient. He will bring about his justice when he is ready. In the meantime, he patiently and lovingly redeems the mistakes and bad choices of all of us when we are willing to submit to him in repentance and obedience.
