Does God Stop Bad Things From Happening to Us?

.



  
The answer to this question is that God is omnipotent and omniscient,

which means He is all powerful and all knowing. 

Scripture says He knows all our thoughts and nothing is hidden from Him. 

The answer to this question is that He is our Father and that He cares for us.

 It also depends on who we are, because we do not become His children

 until we believe in His Son and His death for us to pay for our sin. 

John 1:12 says, "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right

to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.


    To His children God gives many, many promises of His care and protection. 

Romans 8:28 says, "all things work together for good to those who love God." 

This is because He loves us as a Father. 

As such He allows things to come into our lives to teach us to be mature

or even to discipline us, or even to punish us if we sin or disobey.

 Hebrews 12:6 says, "whom the Father loves, He chastens." 


As a Father He wants to bless us with many blessings and give us good things,

but it doesn't mean nothing "bad" ever happens, but it is all for our good.

 I Peter 5:7 says "cast all your care upon Him for He cares for you." 

If you read the book of Job you will see that nothing can come into our life

 that God does not allow for our own good."


    In the case of those who disobey by not believing, God does not make these promises,

but God says He allows His "rain" and blessings to fall on the just and the unjust.

 God wishes for them to come to Him, becoming part of His family.

 He will use different means to do this. 

God may also punish people for their sins, here and now.


    Matthew 10:30 says, "the very hairs of our head are all numbered"

and Matthew 6:28 says we are of more value than the "lilies of the field." 

We know the Bible says God loves us (John 3:16), so we can be sure of His care,

love and protection from "bad" things unless it is

to make us better, stronger and more like His Son.

Dear soul,

Do you have the assurance that if you were to die today,

you'll be in the presence of the Lord in Heaven?

Death for a believer is but a doorway that opens into eternal life.

 

Those who fall asleep in Jesus

shall be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.

Those you've laid in the grave in tears,

you shall meet them again with joy!

Oh, to see their smile and feel their touch...

never to part again!

 

Yet, if you don't believe in the Lord, you're going to hell.

There is no pleasant way to say it.

 

The Scripture says,

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God."

                  ~ Romans 3:23

 

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved."

                  ~ Romans 10:9

 

Don't fall asleep without Jesus

until you are assured of a place in heaven.

 

Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life

first you must believe in the Lord.

You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven

and put your trust in the Lord.

To be a believer in the Lord, ask for eternal life.

There's only one way to heaven and that's through the Lord Jesus.

That's God's wonderful plan of salvation.

 

You can begin a personal relationship with Him

by praying from your heart a prayer such as the following:

 

"Oh God, I'm a sinner.

I've been a sinner all of my life.

Forgive me, Lord.

I receive Jesus as my Savior.

I trust Him as my Lord.

Thank you for saving me.

In Jesus' name, Amen."


If you have never received the Lord Jesus as your personal Savior,

but have received Him today after reading this invitation, please let us know.

We would love to hear from you. Your first name is sufficient.
