But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 5:8 (NASB)
He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.Proverbs 13.20
Sometimes a setback is rooted in your own actions or choices. You did something that hurt another person. You disobeyed God. And now you’re facing a storm because of it. In other cases, the storms we face in life aren’t because of something we did. Instead, we suffer because of other people’s poor decisions. When someone else’s decision turns your life upside down, God uses it for his glory. When someone else’s mistake puts you in a difficult situation, God works through it anyway. Reflect on your situation. If you have made a wrong choice or decision, confess your sin and repent. If not, trust that God will work things out for good.
