God is completely righteous. That doesn’t just mean that He follows the rules. Of course He does – they’re His rules. But He goes beyond that. He always does what is right for you. He knows you inside and out. He only allows things into your life that will help you grow and become the person He knows you can be; knows the things that will make you more like Jesus.
That doesn’t mean that everything that happens to you came from God. People make the choice to sin and it can have a huge effect on a lot of lives; but sin is never God’s will. Sometimes satan will throw hurtful things into your life. God allowed him to do that with Job – the bad things that happened to Job did not come from God, but he knew what job was going through and made everything come out right in the end.
That’s what’s cool – God can even take people’s mistakes and satan’s wicked plans and turn them into something good. Romans 8:28 says, ” and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. He is so good at doing right. He takes even the awful stuff in your life and turns it into something great – something that makes you stronger and brings you closer to Him.
