Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People ?

"But it was the LORD'S good plan to crush him and cause him grief" - Isaiah 53:10a  

Seriously? How in the world could that be considered a good plan?

"The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin
so that he'd see life come from it–life, life, and more life.
And God's plan will deeply prosper through him." - Isaiah 53:10b-11

Now it makes sense.

Don't give up!
You may be going through the crushing and grief in order that the greater good may be accomplished.

Does that mean every little bad thing is God trying to get your attention?
No. Sometimes life happens.
But it does mean there are countless opportunities for God to show himself faithful through you.

Romans 8:28

Keep going!
