I’m a firm believer that God doesn’t cause bad things to happen to teach you a lesson. From my study of the bible I have resolved that bad things happen because people make bad decisions, this is a fallen world we live in, but God is there to get us through.
I’m learning a lot about how to resolve the questions if God is so loving, why is life so hard, by reading through Laura Story’s devotional “What if your Blessings Come through Raindrops.”
She writes, “Many of us believe wrongly that we’re unworthy of God’s love.” I think it’s because of mistakes we’ve made, or bad things that happen and we think God’s doing it to punish us.
Laura writes, “there is nothing we could offer to earn the blessing of salvation. Yet we were in such desperate need of redemption that God being rich in mercy, showed us His love by sending Jesus to our rescue.”
That’s the blessing. The rescue.
“We’re not only saved by grace, but the bible says we’re sustained by grace.” –Bill Hybels
