06 Nov God is Always in Control!
Sometimes it is a difficult to understand why bad things happen to us.
🎯But God has a purpose for everything; the Lord is sovereign.
🎯When we’re in the middle of a trial, it’s hard to resist crying out, “God, why is this happening?”
🎯Sometimes we get an answer and sometimes we don’t.
🎯But we can be sure nothing happens by accident.
🎯We have His promise that He’ll cause “all things to work together for good to those who love God”
🎯Seeing in advance how God will work all things for our benefit can be very difficult, if not impossible.
🎯Our limited human perspective often doesn’t allow us to grasp His greater plan.
🎯However, the Father’s good handiwork is in everything—even our pain, hardships, and losses.
🎯He turns mourning into gladness and provides bountiful blessings and benefits from our darkest hours.
🎯As believers, we must accept that things won’t always make sense to us.
🎯Isaiah teaches that God’s ways and thoughts are higher than our own.
🎯He sees the beautifully completed big picture.
🎯We can rely on the fact that God is in control, no matter how wildly off-kilter our world seems to be.
💥In situations like this, Joseph’s example comforts us. His beautiful dream started manifesting a pit! And the chain of crisis was long.
