"That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun."
Ecclesiastes 1:9 NASB
49 “I came to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50 I have a baptism to receive, and how distressed I am until it is over! 51 Do you suppose that I came to bring peace to the world? No, not peace, but division.
Luke 12:49-51 GNT
In one corner was the love of a Savior and the joy of his friends. And in this corner, Pharisees and chief priests who used Lazarus' resurrection as an excuse to plot the death of Jesus, although Caiaphas, unwittingly prophesied God's plan. (John 11:45-53)
And it keeps getting better! Even when I'm comfortable and confident in my choices, it can be easy to worry about the crazies in this world, or the "powers that be". But God doesn't want us to worry: "Now I know the Lord is greater than all the gods. They thought they were in control, but look what God did!” (Exodus 18:11 ERV).
