The book of Ruth is also a story that reminds us not only that God works visible through prophets and miracles, but that He is invisible and mysteriously working all of the time even within tragedy. But God can Make Good Out Of A Bad Situation. It’s a story for those of us who have, and will suffer some tragedies, loss, or pain, in this life. It’s a story for those wondering where God is in the midst of their repeated heartbreak after heartbreak.
It is a story for those who will doubt whether God is in control, whether God is good, and whether faithfulness to do what is right is worth it in hard times. And It’s a story for people who question whether all things including suffering, are in fact purposed for Good. The answer is Yes! Romans 8:28 says, and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.
Just keep in mind that “God Can Make Good Out Of A Bad Situation” Romans 8:31-32 if God be for us, who or what can be against us? He who spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? My friends, if you are a child of God, you are not left to your own resources to cope with problems. God works out all things – not just isolated incidents- for our good. This does not mean that all that happens to us is good. However, Evil is prevalent in our fallen world, but God is able to turn it around for our long-range good.
Ask the Holy Spirit to plead for you “according to the will of God.” Then, when you bring your request to God, trust that He will always do what is best. Think about it my friends, think about it.
