God is able to use the worst things for good.
He promises this for faithful Christians (Romans 8:28). But the fact that God is present in our world means that a measure of His grace is found everywhere.
I thought of this when I heard about an experimental medical procedure injecting HIV cells into the blood of terminally ill cancer patients. Now, before you gasp in shock, let me explain: they engineer these cells in the lab to be "cancer killers" that no longer cause HIV.
A little girl named Emma had no hope. Her days were numbered....until doctors injected her leukemic blood with these former HIV cells. Emma is now healthy.
Romans 5:20 says "where sin increased, grace increased all the more." Even though our world is fallen and full of evil and suffering, God's presence still sprinkles grace in the most unlikely places.
Today let's take a moment and thank God for that grace that keeps our world from becoming predominantly evil.
