Surely God can manage a global pandemic. Maybe we tell ourselves these things, but we're looking around. We're seeing people dying. We're seeing people suffering. Does God really know what He's doing?
For every disaster or disease or crime or pestilence, there's a sermon given by an earnest pastor who goes on and on and on about God's faithfulness and His power and His love and His protection - while smoothly skipping over the fact that plenty of people were not protected, and did indeed suffer.
