God is always good, even when we hurt

Reading

Romans 8:38: For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come…

Isaiah 55:8-10: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater…”

Psalm 145:17: The Lord is righteous in all His ways, gracious in all His works.

Challenge

Sometimes things happen that don’t make sense to us, or even seem to be cruel. Discuss / describe how your attitude needs to change this week as you remember that “all things work together for good to those who love God” (Romans 8:38).

Prayer

Dear Lord, help me today to remember that Your Word says Your thoughts and ways are higher than our thoughts and ways (Isaiah 55:8-10). Not only that: You are righteous in all Your ways (Psalm 145:17). Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, amen.
