If you pay any attention to the news, you’ve no doubt felt at times that the world is out of control and that the bad guys are winning. You see the horrors of terrorism, war, and natural disasters that wipe out thousands. You hear about school shootings and all kinds of shootings. And you hear about terrible crimes toward little children. You read about corruption in government both here and abroad. You hear about the horrible persecution of Christians throughout the world. The list goes on and on.
Sometimes it can be discouraging and depressing to the point that you wonder whether God is really in charge of world events. But in spite of all these things, Romans chapter 11 shows us that God is in charge and that His promises and His purpose will not fail.
