Do you ever wonder why things happen? Do you ever ask God why things happen? We hear of a newborn baby dying and we ask ourselves and God why? We read about a young man diving off a bridge into ariver, breaking his neck and being paralyzed for life and we ask ourselves and God why? A person goes to the doctor and they’re diagnosed with cancer and they’re told they only have a few months to live and we ask ourselves and God why?
Why do bad things happen to good, Godly people? I do know that bad things happen to good people at times because of sin! I also know that God allows things to happen to us to draw us closer to Him!
The bottom line is, we need to trust God and know that whatever He allows to happen or whatever He’s doing is right! Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thy own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
