“The mystery of iniquity is at work in the world during this interim time, and it is not always clear how its malignant work is being checked, overridden, or woven into the glorious purposes of God. We need to remember, though, that while Judas betrayed Christ, and woe to him for doing so, it was God’s plan that Christ was thus betrayed. Evil by its very nature opposes the purposes of God, but God, in his sovereignty, can make even this evil serve his purposes.”

I take great comfort in knowing that God is at work in every situation. Sometimes evil seems to be winning….then, I remember that our God is sovereign and take heart again. How good to know He is in control. Thank you for sharing this!
Excellent quote from a great book.
