Romans 8:28 “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
God knows all things. He sees the world and us from the perspective of the past, the present, and the future. Anything that touches our lives has to pass through Him before it gets to us. Nothing happens without His full knowledge. And nothing is too big or too small for Him to handle.
Sometimes we tend to think, “Oh my problem is too big. God couldn’t possible do anything to fix it. Or we think our problem, that just worries us to death, is just too small for God to worry about. I’m one little person. Why would He care about me? He has the whole universe to be concerned with.
He already knows about your problem. He may be allowing a small problem to enter your life to get your attention. To get you to go to Him in the small things as well as the big things.
The fact is: God allows problems and difficulties for several reasons.
One I see so often is we get our priorities out of line, and He wants to show us we need to adjust them.
Many are living lives that are far from what God planned for them. They are entrapped by sin and spend most of their time trying to justify the lifestyle they have chosen. True peace cannot come to the person who has not surrendered his or her life to the Lord.
