Challies Dot Com: Where is God in the Storm?

Some reflections on Ashley Smith and Rick Warren on the Larry King Show last night.
Tim Challies has a great post today that ends up being a discussion of the sovereignty of God and the existence of evil. If nothing else, he shows how weightless is the position that God is out control when really bad things happen. I particulary appreciated his conclusion:
The truth is, we don't really know how or why God allows and even decrees that these things will happen. But we do not need to "let God off the hook" in order to make ourselves or unbelievers feel better. Let God be God and take comfort not in our supposed explanations of how and why He acts, but in the fact that He is always present with us, whether in times of joy or sorrow.
