    I don’t agree that there is not a Divine reason for everything that happens to us, otherwise God would not be God, but everything that happens to us is not God’s Will for us. For everything that happens there is a cause or reason. The reason that bad things happen to the righteous and unrighteous alike is that we live in a fallen and broken world ruled by the spiritual forces of evil. This was not God’s Will, but a result of our free will and disobedience (sin). The big takeaway in today’s text, for me, is that God has a Will in everything that happens to us. He will work all things out for those who love him and who are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). That is why I can rejoice and give thanks in everything that happens to me (1Thessalonians 5:18). I am no longer a victim of my circumstances because I a child of God abiding in Christ. I don’t ask, why me? I ask why not me and how are you going to use this for my benefit and for the sake of others. Thanks be to God!
