“Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.” Hosea 6:1 (ESV)
Bad things do happen to good people, but it does not mean God is against those in dire circumstances. A parent who loves their child will discipline them when it’s necessary, because they want them to learn and grow from it, which usually can only happen by going through it. God may allow hurt or harm to befall you, but not without His intentions to shape your character for your own eternal good.
Let’s pray today that we may look toward the Lord for the eternal lesson in tough times.
