Regardless of the cause, none of your past, present and future problems could happen without God’s permission. He has a purpose behind every problem, and our job is to discover the character of Christ in the middle of what feels like a tsunami type crisis. We will never experience the power of God if we quit or detour at every sign of trouble. Nor will we know that God is all we need until God is all we got!
“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son….” Romans 8:28-29 (NLT)
