From the Storms....

God is not chaotic or random.  Satan does not hold the keys to death, and he is not sovereign.  The underlying theology of the Bible is that God ordains everything according to His purposes. 

Difficulties, suffering, death....God doesn't just sit back and watch and say "oops, satan got away with that again!" 

God is ultimately good and God is always at work.  When we suffer, He suffers too, but it is never by accident that we suffer.

"If God is God and if God is a God of providence and if God is sovereign, then nothing ever happens that is senseless in the final analysis." -- R.C. Sproul, Surprised by Suffering

What satan intends for evil, God will use for good.
 The beauty of the waterfall originates in the tragedy of the storms.
