I’m so tired of hearing people place the blame of losing someone to a terrible disease, or the premature death of a child, on God. They say God has a plan and we must trust him as he kills, steals and destroys our families. (Did I just quote scripture?)
Listen to me! That’s the God I grew up with. That’s the mean, unfair God the church taught me about, the God that’s mad at me every time I make a mistake.
This may shock you but I TOTALLY REJECT that God! My God is good! He has nothing but GOOD to give me. “O come and see that the Lord He is good!
And don’t tell me I haven’t experienced tragedy in my life. I buried a 34 year old daughter in 2013. I know that pain. I know the questions and weird thoughts that go through the mind when those things occur.
I hear the phrase “but God” all the time. So I’ll give you a “but God!” BUT GOD DID NOT TAKE MY DAUGHTER! His plan for her was long abundant life. That plan was not carried out because we have an enemy that’s on a mission to kill, steal and destroy and many times he succeeds. “But God” had nothing to do with it.
Thankfully the enemy can kill the body but not the Spirit.
Renew your mind to the goodness of God. He’s not a baby killer, a cancer dispenser, or an originator of any tragedy. He doesn’t use any of those things to teach you, discipline you or punish. No he uses his Word for teaching and admonishment. It’s up to us to get his Word in us.
Check your “believer” today. Make sure you’re serving the true God. The one that’s good.
