Are You Being Set Up?
And we know that to them that love God all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 ASV)
God allows the good as well as the bad to come into our lives.
He doesn’t causes the bad.
John 10:10 clearly states that the devil kills, steals and destroys.
James 1:17 tells us that good gifts come from God.
But God could intervene when bad happens to us, but if He works everything for our good, if He takes what the devil meant for evil and turns it around for our good, then we have to see His closed doors as God setting us for something better.
That’s so hard to remember when bad things happen to us, but God has a purpose in everything. He will take the good and the bad and cause us to catapult to the place He wants to be.
