Read John 18:38-19:11
Then Jesus said [to Pilate], “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above. So the one who handed me over to you has the greater sin.” – John 19:11 (NLT)
As with Pilate and the Jewish leaders, there are selfish, cruel or evil powers in our world, but they have no power to go beyond the boundaries God has put on them. No matter their intentions, the evil they do is only what God, for His own purposes, allows. And we can know that our suffering too will ultimately lead to more glory to God.
