Darkness and destiny - God's providence in a broken world
Isaiah looks on as the lights go out. Rejection of God. Social injustice. Imperial aggression. Defeat and despair. How do we understand God's sovereignty in such a broken world?
We grapple with the same problems in our broken world today and especially so, given the darkness and seeming hopelessness of the pandemic. Where is God? Is he still in control of the world and all that is happening? How is he working out his purposes? How do we make sense of it all?
Yet even as Isaiah's warnings went unheeded, promises of an extraordinary destiny kept coming - not just for his people but also for the whole world. Promises of restoration and forgiveness, of an international people of God and a new earth for them to inhabit. A vision of God's servant, somebody who somehow, at great cost, would bring it all about.
We live and work in a world which sometimes feels increasingly dark. Rarely has Isaiah's proclamation seemed more relevant.
Come and join us at this year's Junior Doctors' Conference to be reminded of the providence of God and our destiny in his plans.
