“Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds.” Hosea 6:1 (NIV)
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.
Our God is our Creator and Sovereign Lord, so when we are broken and in need to healing, why wouldn’t we want to go immediately to Him? Whatever our circumstances, the Lord knows what’s best for us in the outcome that He can arrange.
Let’s pray today that we may look toward the Lord for the eternal lesson in tough times.
