THE LORD HAS BEEN KIND TO US
The question I have posed repeatedly is, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” That is a probing question. Sometimes, even as believers, we forget that God reigns over the just as well as the unjust, and He has been kind to all of us no matter what we are going through. We should never forget the goodness and kindness of the Lord. We should never allow misfortunes, trials, and heartaches to cloud our minds. Recognize the goodness of God and give Him praise for all He has done! In Job 10: 12, we find these words:
You gave me life and showed me your unfailing love. My life was preserved
by your care.
Job had gone through all kinds of troubles and trials. So many tragedies happened in his life, yet Job still acknowledged God’s unfailing love. He knows full well, despite all that he had been through, that God had been good to him. This faithful servant of God lost all his possessions, some of his family, and a portion of his health, yet he still gave God praise! When you get a chance, read the story of Job again. Job did not complain about his circumstance, but instead, he gave God thanks, acknowledging that God was kind to him despite it all. What a testimony! I pray that each of our testimonies can be the same as Job’s, that the Lord has been kind to us, no matter what!
