Macbeth pessimistically declares that history is “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” (Shakespeare, Macbeth, 5.5.19). Apart from the wisdom and insight God provides His children, such a hopeless conclusion is inescapable. But history belongs to God, not to the puny means of man or the perverse power of Satan. As a result of this redemption, people are restored to their rightful place in the creation. God knew and understood in creating man in His image and likeness, would need to have redemption for their sin. Since, God understood mans need for redemption before Sin enters the world, it is comforting to remember that God understands my sinful choices, and what has driven me away from Him. It is His working in our lives that enables us to overcome sin, and live a life that not only is pleasing to Him, but a life that brings contentment in the midst of our struggles.
