“And we know that ALL THINGS work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be CONFORMED TO the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also JUSTIFIED: and whom he justified, them he also GLORIFIED. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?” (Romans 8:28-31 KJV)
Why do bad things happen to believers ? Why do good things happen to believers?
1. For HIS PURPOSE.
2. So that we can be CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF CHRIST.
In ALL.. ALL…ALL THINGS you face as a believer. The good. The bad. Persecution. Financial difficulty. Bankruptcy. Threat of death. Terminal illness. Sudden medical emergency. Death of a loved one. Loss of work. The list goes on and on and on.
When bad things happen in your life. Sudden things that make you doubt the love of God. HANG on these verses! God has a perfect plan and the plan is HIS – NOT OURS. And the plan, in the end of your life, you will see that it was all for GOOD. Good for you. Good for someone else’s Salvation. GOOD. GOD’s GOOD. God’s WILL. In God’s PERFECT WAY.
