Daily Readings — God IS the Cause! (Part 3)

Day 2025: The third post regarding a life changing analogy. Please read the previous 2 if you haven’t already . . .

Scripture: And I know that God causes all things to work together for my good because I love Him, and I am called according to His purpose for me! Romans 8:28

Thoughts/questions: Why did this happen? How could there be a God of love given this or that event? If God knew sin would exist and still created, isn’t He the author of evil?

Humanity as a whole attributes the good, the bad, and the ugly to God. We may argue the conclusions of many, BUT we can be assured that God is the cause of at least one thing. This one is definitely His fault!

For those who love God and follow His purposes in their lives, God promises to take whatever ‘crap’ has happened to them and causes that ‘crap’ to create a tastier apple! (Be sure to read the previous two posts!!! – you’ll be glad you did!) Yes, He causes even our most challenging times or events to work together for our good!!! Like Joseph, our circumstances may have resulted in evil, BUT God changed them to good!

If God is making sure that something is going to happen (causing good to come), that something IS going to happen! Yes, He is the cause of ‘everything happening for a reason’ to those who love and follow Him!!!

Suggested prayer: Thank You Lord for taking my difficulties and turning them into something good for me. Thank You, thank You, thank You . . .
