When Bad Things Happen

Description

It's so hard to understand why bad things happen to good people. We must trust Him.

We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28, NIV)

Why does God let bad things happen to good people?  to innocent people?  to children?  to me?

Sometimes His ways seem so hard to understand!

In Romans 8:28, Paul wrote to reassure believers who lived in a city dominated by Nero, a madman with absolute power. He wrote encouragingly, “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Phrased another way, Paul was reminding the children of God they can be confident that . . .

all things work together for good,

brokenness leads to blessing,

death leads to life, 

and suffering leads to glory!

So when bad things happen, just trust Him!
