God Always Gets Blamed

May 26, 2013

This is what I took away from Sunday school today. God seems to always get blamed when things go bad. We probably all have said it at one time or another God why did you let this happen or how can there be a God who would let bad things happen to good people. Our God is a loving God and He does have big shoulders and can handle anything thrown His way. When disaster strikes like the tornado in Oklahoma, flooding, fires, are even diseases like cancer, God did not cause these things to happen they just do. But God can use these bad things to turn whatever it is around to do good for us. Have you ever noticed how these things bring the good out in people around you, I know there are still bad people in this world who take advantage of people, and that is going to happen and even then God can work with that. God does not want any of us to suffer in hell he wants us all to be with Him in Heaven. So through all the bad things that happen in life even to good people God can use these things to bring people to Him.

God can use the different circumstances to let His people help the ones that are in pain over losing a loved one, our losing everything in a storm.  We can be there to listen if they just need to talk, help them rebuild, our even tell them how they can have the peace that only Jesus can give. In Galatians, Paul tells how because he was sick that it gave him the opportunity to preach to the Galatians.

Galatians 4:13

13 As you know, it was because of an illness that I first preached the gospel to you,

In Philippians Paul was thrown in jail even though he did not do anything wrong. He was imprisoned for preaching Christ and he did not let it bother him and by his actions he was able to proclaim Christ.

Philippians 1:12-13

12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.

People think that just because they have given their life to Christ that everything will be a breeze and that nothing will ever go wrong in their life again. Well I have news for them that is when the devil will strike the most because before you were his and he did not need to mess with you. So if satan is giving you problems and people persecuting you that you need to celebrate for that is a sure sign that you belong to God.

2 Timothy 3:12

12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
