The problem is when we think we are looking at “bad things” in the life of a believer we forget or we mentally set aside in our heads that God IS Good. He is not good because we are getting what we want He IS Good because it is in His character and He can be nothing other than Good. We wrongly judge what is good based on our comfort level and the things we want and we fail to see or discern the BIG PICTURE. Bad things happened to Jesus, His Son, or did it?

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:1-2 KJV)

If Jesus hadn’t gone through what He went through there would not have been any Salvation. We would still be trying unsuccessfully to live under the restrictions of the Old Covenant. Eternal Life would not be ours if Jesus didn’t go through what He went through.

In the Book of Revelations, John was taken up higher Rev 21:10, so that he could see, when we get to the book of Ezekiel you will see that he too was taken up to a higher place so that he could see. Until we are given a higher perspective, we can only guess at why bad things happen to good people. But we should know this that when we are in the Shelter of God’s Hands, when bad things happen to good people, it is for God’s purpose.

Grace and peace,
