Both the Bible and our experience tell us that bad things happen to everyone, Christians included. Believing in Jesus Christ does not exempt us from bad things touching our lives. God doesn’t give us a free pass. Illness, unemployment, financial hardship, struggles in marriage, difficulties with children and a host of other hard things are part of our lives. The good news in our struggles and hardships, though, is that God promises to work good in all of them as we trust in him and love him. That’s an amazing promise, one that we all need to remember and live by. Do you need God’s promise from Romans 8:28 today? If so, take heart, have courage and trust in God’s ability to work good in all things.
