Good And Bad Things Happen

The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Hebrews 13:6 

God sometimes uses good things to demonstrate His love for us, or bad things to warn us of danger. He also may use events in our lives to remind us of our need for Him, or call us to repent. God sometimes does this to humans “so that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Hm” (Acts 17:27). 

For example, I once received a letter from a man who had grown up in a Christian home. But he had rebelled against God and lived a wild, immoral life, and now he was Oxford prison. He said it was the best thing that had ever happened to him, because it made him face his sin and admit his need for Christ. Now he is living for Christ instead of the devil—but it took a series of bad circumstances to bring him to that point. 

Do not wander through life wondering if God cares for you or has a purpose for your life. Instead, turn to Christ and commit your life to Him. Then you will know that no matter what happens to you—either good or bad—you belong to Him forever, and let all your requests in every situation, be known to God in prayer (Philippians 4:6).

Bible Reading

Father, help me to remember, that in every situation, You are in control. Help me to Trust You each day. In Jesus name, I ask. Amen.
